Middleman is the 13th episode of 11th season of "E.R."


Pratt treats a young boy with a suspicious gash on his chest, but lets him leave before Wendall clears him. The young boy later returns to the ER, badly beaten by bullies from school & doesn't survive his injuries.

Susan works at getting multiple grants for the ER in order to better her chances at tenure.

Luka and Dubenko disagree on a patient's treatment. Jake switches the remainder of his shifts in an effort to date Abby.


  • Although in the opening credits, Laura Innes does not appear in this episode.


Luka (to Pratt): If you have a strong gut feeling about something, you have to listen to it.
Pratt: Come on, you were wrong.
Luka: We don't know that yet.
Pratt: Made us look like fools.
Luka: Is that what you're worried about?
Pratt: What?
Luka: Nothing will get a doctor into bigger trouble than the fear of looking stupid. Trust me.
Carter (to Susan): Look, I'm sorry. Maybe sometimes I'm not the best team player.
Susan: I was out of line. I just have so many balls in the air, I sorta took it out on you.
Carter: It was easier being a resident, wasn't it? Attendings made all the tough calls, protected us from all the administrative crap.
Susan: Didn't seem like that at the time. Students wanna be residents, residents wanna be attendings...
Carter: Yeah, and attendings just wanna be left alone.
