Molly is anxious to take on a case involving a notorious murderer of six women in Chicago, dubbed "Ladykiller". Sam's opinions as a surgeon who saves lives everyday conflicts with that of his wife's, who would advocate public executions. During trial, the mother of the accused tries to appeal to Molly's maternal side by relaying a story of how her son in basically a good boy but is a bit mental, hearing voices since he was very young. Molly will not sway her opinions of the death penalty and explains that he took the life of sixe women and he must be stopped. Meanwhile, Sam is preoccupied with having to perform yet another operation on a dignified man (Scatman Crothers) who is now facing an eighth operation to stay alive. Back at home, Sam must confort his wife after the jury hands down the death sentence. Being supportive, he tells her that the job of God is already taken.
