Episode Summary

EDIT
The Lottery
AIRED:
Excited when their antibody finally shows promise, Ben and Mike mount a clinical trial and clash over the lottery system that excludes one of Ben's patients, forcing him to pursue an alternative, less-effective therapy; fearing for his job and the financial future of the hospital, Max releases the news about the antibody to the press prematurely and incurs Ben's anger; Ollie counsels Sid after he goes on the date from hell, and provides an inspired and extremely pleasurable way to make his date regret dumping him; the post mortem after an indiscretion with a patient's wife provides Sid with just the thing to effect a cure for the man; in a series of events that Ben is at a loss to explain, the clinical trial fails and the alternative treatment his patient received instead miraculously cures his cancer.moreless
