In "Point of Origin," Carter uses the term 'gorked'. I assume it is an acronym for something not very complimentary; what does it mean exactly? Forgive me if numerous people have asked this; I'm new here...

GORKed means "God Only Really Knows" i.e. a patient who is in very bad shape and whose condition is out of the hands of medicine.
