    matt...i think ive seen meet the parents a million times...there are so many funny references to his being a nurse that most lay people miss...for example, when he comes down to breakfast and the two doctors are sitting at the table...someone asks him why he wasnt a doctor and he was going to tell them that doctors are *******s but his fiancee changed the subject...lol

    i liked when he met the ex fiancee and greg told him that he was "in the medical field" so jack says ...greg is a nurse...like its something to be ashamed of for a man...

    but my favorite part was at the very end when jack was asking greg if he would support his daughter like she should be supported ...like wedding vows, and he adds....would you consider another profession...lol

    i dont have a favorite movie or book but i think my fav tv nurse was dixie from that old paramedics show...what was that called?
    squad 51..it was the only paramedic unit that answered calls...everyone called squad 51...oh i know it was called EMERGENCY (i think)

    dixie was the only nurse in the ER. there were a couple of docs and once in while there was a bimbo nurse who assisted dixie...but dixie was the NURSE... she always looked perfect...she had a great relationship with all guys..lol...she did everything and she knew everything.

    Let me see, what was the name of the nurse Chloris Lichman played in the Mel Brooks movie High Anziety? I was not at the least bit put off by the portrayal. It was afterall a spoof.

    The one where Robin Williams plays the psychiatrists & Robert DeNero (sp?) plays the patient with I think ALS or lock-in-syndrome.
    Awakenings! I forget the nurses name too. She was on All In the Family alot!

    I love the scene in Terms of Enderment when Shirley Mc Clain is freaking out on the nurses because it's past the time for her daughter to get MSO4. I'm thinking, "For crips sake! Why are you waiting to give that terminal patient the freakin' morphine!Sadist! ":chuckle

    Did'nt think much of Nurse Betty. It almost made it seem like anyone could walk into our job.

    Loretta Young in The Nun's Story...

    Ooo, I got you Sleepy! It was Audry Hepburn in "A Nun's Story"
    Excellent movie! Shows an autonomous nurse who's as smart as the doctors.


    You 're right; I concede. I'm just totally amazed that someone else saw it and remembered it. Did you read the book?

    I really felt she was a heroic character.

    "Wit" was great.

    I always love Emma Thompson, but this was especially good. At the time I saw it, I was also in cancer treatment, so it was very meaningful for me. Certain scenes definitely stay with me still.

    Just curious, why Terms of Endearment? It has a short minute scene with nurses with Shirly MacClain which did show nurses in a positive light?
