Series 2, Episode 7
There is a lot of bad luck going around the hospital this week, with the exception of Martin who wins 10,000 pound on the scratch cards (the fact that he only got 3000 after doing a deal with the shopkeeper doesn't bother him too much). After much debating , he eventually invests in some trainers which unfortunately for him, no one seems to notice.
However, Joanna and Alan's luck isn't as good as Martin's what with Joanna sleeping with a barely legal boy and Alan having panic attacks up and down the hospital, which leaves him convinced he's dying (though no one else seems to notice any difference). Despite this stress over the dwarf situation, it seems to bring them together again, with Joanna even allowing Statham to talk to "the growler".
Holly's down on her luck as well, after Sue White discovers hair dye, DNA tests and a photo of Mackenzie with black her in her locker... proving that Mac isn't the father. Sue of course goes rushing to Mac to let him know, and so Mac makes Holly leave the hospital, who does so without fanfare. This means of course, that Caroline and Mac can get their relationship can get back on track. Doesn't it? Of course not. This time Sue White gets in the way by announcing to all the staff that she is pregnant with Mac's baby. But is she telling the truth?
If Caroline can't get together with Mac, then there's always Guy who professes the fact that he doesn't just "like" Caroline, he "likes" her. Unfortunately Guy's luck is also on a downward spiral and Caroline pays no attention to him, as her mind is on other matters (like trying to pee). As a sacrifice to Caroline, he gets a tattoo drawn. Unfortunately for Guy, it's completely the wrong thing.
Will the staff's luck get any better next week? Can it get any worse?
