Since we're babbling our way to the new thread... Do you know what really cracked me up? When I was listening to the audio commentary for Bone Yard and MW told how Mark's hair looks much like a yamaka. I couldn't help myself but when I was watching old episodes afterwards that's what I was paying attention to. And the worst? MW was right Mark's hair seemed to refuse becoming real silver on the top for quite a while and it looked like a natural grown yamaka indeed...
Anyways. So do we have the new thread yet? No? How about some video entertainment in the mean time? Since there was a request for a dancing McNeil, I uploaded his dance with the old lady in the wheelchair. Sorry, I don't have the episode where he is taking dancing lessons with Lisa.
Meg in answer to the 1st question, he is remembering tearing a dollar in half and giving half to his younger brother, after their mum had died, saying they should stick together as the dollar was worth more when it was whole. Sean had been killed in prison, and Jack had gone home to their dad, who used to beat Sean. Jack felt guilty at how, he had stayed in his room studying, while Sean and his dad fought. If I recall Lisa has just broken up with Jack as well, because he would not let her go with him to the funeral.
2nd the man was a promising baseball pitcher, Jack was at the practice when the guys arm snapped. Jack tried to save the arm by doing a risky operation, rather than amputate right away, but the man got an infection, (from stroking a policemans horse), so the arm had to come off anyway and they sued Jack for negligence. At the end of the show we see the policeman and the horse and Jack realises, but does not tell anyone what happened, so the family kept the money.
