Added DiffLines:

* MercyKill: In one episode, Bobby is asked to help his retired cancer-stricken teacher to stop hurting. He gives her an overdose of morphine.
** In another one, as Doc is transporting a badly burned colleague to a hospital with a special burn unit, the man begs him to do this (aside from the agony he's already in, he knows full well it's only a matter of time before he dies from infection and dehydration). Doc finally complies and does the same as Bobby did.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: 9-11. Between being set in New York City and focusing on paramedics, firefighters, and police officers, there was no way the writers couldn't weave the events of that day into Season 3.
