Episode Summary

EDIT
Fear of Flying
AIRED:
Evan has a bizarre sexual fantasy about Kelly. Roger thinks it has to do with the fact that Evan hasn't had sex since the divorce. Kelly brings Tim bad news: the twins' alcoholic mother has cleaned up her act and may get the parental right back. Tim is frustrated but Kelly reminds him he knew this could happen when he agreed to be foster parent. Roger's stepmother Mildred is hospitalized with some gall bladder problem. However, Roger soon clashes with the obnoxious second year resident that treats her as he finds evidence that Mildred's real problem is a cardiac infarction. Roger has never really gotten along with his stepmother, and his dad, Vincent, is no man of emotions and dislikes it when Roger announces that Mildred needs surgery. A depressed Tim loses it when Nina tells him the insurance company SteadyCare refuses to cover the medical bills for one of their patients so they must send the patient a bill. Despite submitting a claim form several times, it has been declined each time by the account representative. Tim calls the representative, who is only identified by the phone number 8294-7, and when he never gets through, he sends an insulting and provocative complaint. Evan hits an orange fruit vendor with his car. He hurriedly calls for an ambulance but meanwhile, the vendor gets up and flees. Sarah tells Evan the vendor probably ran because he's an illegal immigrant and she helps him to search for the boy. Sarah's Spanish comes in handy and they end up at a run-down, dirty free "clinic" but don't find the boy. Instead they must save a gunshot victim that's brought in. Mildred and Roger form a closer relationship prior to her surgery. She tells him Vincent is very proud of him although his nature forbids him to show such emotions. Tim gets an angry reply from 8294-7 and despite Nina's vehement objections, he goes over to SteadyCare and violently attacks 8294-7. He then regrets what he's done and offers him a favor if he approves of the claim form. But 8294-7 declines it again and flees when Tim is off guard. Mildred's surgery goes fine and Roger confronts Vincent with not showing emotions. Vincent is agreeable but doesn't crack. Evan brings some supplies to help the illegal immigrants' clinic but they've left. On his way home, Evan stops to buy some oranges from a vendor.moreless
