Episode Summary

EDIT
Endless Bummer
AIRED:
Tim suddenly starts shaking while examining a patient and can hardly hold on to his balance. Suzanne and Evan are worried about him but Tim just brushes it off. Roger is surprised when he bumps into and old acquaintance at the hospital; Eleanor Riggs, who is an old college girlfriend that he once loved passionately. Roger is excited about seeing her again but then he finds out from Eleanor's former doctor that she suffers from a terminal, inoperable tumor. Trying to compensate as he's probably losing the twin girls, Tim goes to donate his bone marrow to a very sick young boy. However, the kid's doctor, Dr. Grant, refuses to let him go through with it because Tim's blood pressure is way too high. Roger confronts Eleanor about not telling him of her illness. He insists on trying to help her but Eleanor has come to terms with the fact the's going to die and just wants to spend time with Roger instead. Meanwhile, Tom Arnold drops by the clinic and Felicity scares him with her depressing Y2K prophecies. The worried Tom proceeds to bother Evan with his new fears. Roger later consults a friend, Dr. Tom Florin, about Eleanor. Florin is willing to try and help Eleanor but tells Roger that he respects patients who choose to live their last few months fulfilling their lives instead of spending the time they've got left in a hospital bed. Tim writes himself a prescription to get his blood pressure down. Dr. Grant agrees to let him transplant his bone marrow now but all of sudden, Tim's hand starts shaking and he suffers another panic attack. After recovering, Tim still persuades Dr. Grant to let him donate. Eleanor makes it clear to Roger that if he wants to remain a part of her life, he has to give of the idea of saving her.moreless
