There's a little inconsistency here:
In episode 13, season 1, he's born in 1977.
In episode 9, season 5, he's born on November 5th, 1975.
Paramedic at the 55
Becoming a doctor up to season 4, episode
17, then being a paramedic becomes his chosen profession.
Carlos is afraid of heights.
In season 1, episode 14, Carlos meets
Vangie (she was in an accident, and Doc and Carlos were
the ones on the scene) and dates her for a while. She
is mentally unstable and he soon tries to break it off.
She then tells him, she's pregnant. He offers her his
help for an abortion, but she refuses. After a suicide
attempt on her part, and quite a few rows between the
two, she finally tells him that he doesn't have to worry
about it anymore. Carlos ignores what she means by that,
and we are left as ignorant as him on the matter. The
story is picked up again in season 3 with Kylie.
Inconsistency concerning Vangie: in season 1, her last
name is Evans. In season 3, her sister and Kylie's last
name is Samstron or something like that (I didn't manage
to hear it right). Shouldn't they be named Evans as
episodes 16, 17 and 19: to his shock, he learns
that he is the father of Kylie.
He dated her mother Vangie
a couple of years back, and now that she died in a bike
accident, he ends up with the kid.
Though he completly falls for his daughter, he decides
to give up Kylie for adoption since he cannot give her
a real family to grow up in. He choses the Kenny family
and asks them to be able to stay in contact with his
In season 5, episode 8, he learns that Kylie is sick.
She has idiopathic aplastic anemia and needs a bone
marrow transplant. Her best bet is to find a biological
donor. However, as Carlos puts it, she is the daughter
of a "one-sibling psycho and a foster care reject
who has no family", hence complicating the whole
biological donor business a great deal. Fortunately,
things are going change in the following episodes concerning
Carlos and his lack of family...
Apart from Kylie, none really. Carlos
is a foster child. But in season 5, episode 9, Carlos
tries to know who his biological family is in order
to help Kylie. She needs a bone marrow transplant that
he can't give her. He goes to see a woman he used to
live with, and learns that his father was killed in
a hit-and-run and that he was found holding his hand.
Then in the following episodes, Carlos is contacted
by a man who claims to be his older brother. He is a
match for Kylie and so we understand he is really Carlos's
brother. His name is Christian and he's a chief prosecutor
from Hawaii. He's been looking for Carlos and his father
for 25 years. Apparently the father had run off with
Carlos after a bad divorce custody decision. Carlos's
name used to be Adam (which is funny because it happens
to be the name of his bus, and also the name of the
actor who plays his brother, Adam Beach. The writers
are having fun...).
Christian tells Carlos that their mother never stopped
thinking about him until the day she died, and celebrated
all his birthdays while praying that wherever he was,
he was with a family.
there's another little inconsistency
In season 1, episode 8, Carlos says he had 6 foster
In season 4, episode 19, Carlos says that he was in
7 different foster homes before he was 10 - which suggests
he had more than that.
This is Ms. Lucinda Harding who used to be one of
his foster moms.
The most important person for him next
to Kylie is probably Monte
Parker, alias Doc.
My guess would be that he is kind of a father figure
to Carlos. Then would come his roommate Ty Davis.
Ty Davis (since season 2).
A cockatoo acquired in season 2, episode
1, "The Lost".
