Jane Figler: Mothers often eat their own young in the wild and we just think it's part of nature, right? But when women kill their children, it's a crime, and we think they're crazy.
Abby Lockhart: What?
Jane Figler: Well, I mean, it just makes you wonder, right? Are the lions crazy too? Or are women like Susan Smith and Andrea Yates just acting upon some primitive impulse that's deep within our genetic maternal make-up?
Luka Kovac: Am I interrupting something?
Jane Figler: Just some girl talk.

One of the best ER episodes
9 May 2018 | by felicia-57294See all my reviews

There comes a point with new actors in a drama series when they really start to click, when they mature into their roles, an episode when the script has an intensity that locks it all in. This is one of those episodes. This is a new ER series emerged from the old one, with all the new characters in full swing, and a great script. Great social and political commentary at some points, particularly one about the debacle of the Iraq war vs. incarceration in America made by Dr. Pratt.
