Episode Summary

EDIT
Pilot
AIRED:
Michaela "Mike" Quinn, of Boston, followed in her father's footsteps by becoming a doctor, working beside him. But his sudden death caused her the loss of her best friend, as well as their medical practice. The lack of job opportunities for women doctors lead Michaela to answer an ad for a doctor in Colorado territory. When she arrives in town she is met with mockery- they expected a man. She is befriended by Charlotte Cooper (Diane Ladd). When Charlotte is bitten by a rattle snake, she leaves her three children Matthew (Chad Allen), Colleen (Erika Flores, later Jessica Bowman) and Brian (Shawn Toovey) for Dr. Mike to look after. As the town continues to mock Michaela, she meets Sully, a white man "turned" Native American who lets her live in his old house. Michaela continues to offer her doctoring abilities to the town, and slowly she became accepted by some townsfolk.moreless
