Medical Drama
[...] Where doctors save lives and make love, often simultaneously. Our stories, Ripped from the Headlines. Our passions, unbridled. Our cafeteria, eh Make love to me, Ann. I know Im just a surgeon and youre a hotshot upstart administrator, but damn the rules, damn the system, damn our two foot height disparity, I want you.
