Episode Summary

EDIT
Leap of Faith
AIRED:
Roger is having an affair with Jill, one of the doctors on his rounds. Jill is very talented but Roger is still being kind of hard on her. Evan asks Kelly out on a date to see what happens and she agrees. Tim and Julie are crushed when they have to send the twin girls with Rosie for two weeks. Rosie has really cleaned up her act and Tim is convinced she'll soon have the girls back for good. Sarah is thrilled to discover that she is pregnant and shares the happy new with everyone at the clinic. Tim is approached by Robert Brooks, whose mother Mrs. Brooks keeps talking to her dead husband. She is aware that he is dead but she is still convinced that she can see him and talk to him. Mrs. Brooks also suffers headaches and Tim takes some tests. All of a sudden, Sarah suffers from stomach cramps and she is rushed to the hospital, where she is put under the care of Dr. Weiss. Sarah receives bad news; the fetus isn't in the uterus, it's in the tube and has to removed right away. Roger asks Jill for a diagnosis on a patient, Mr. Atkins. He isn't pleased that Jill seems to have a problem addressing the patient by name and it really causes trouble when Jill says that Atkins' chances for recovery are close to zero, without seeing that his wife, Tara Atkins, is listening. Roger tries to calm Tara. A hysterical Sarah is frightened to lose her tube and insist that only expert Dr. Patel will be allowed to remove the fetus. She is willing to risk her own life to wait for Patel. Tim tells Mrs. Brooks that she has a tumor that is causing her hallucinations about her dead husband. Mrs. Brooks won't operate if that means she won't see her husband anymore and Tim agrees that in her age, an operation may be too risky since the tumor doesn't appear to be dangerous. Evan tries to convince Sarah to not wait for Patel but Sarah is desperate to not lose her tube because she has already lost one earlier. Mrs. Brooks get worse and Tim convinces her to operate; she'll still have the memories of her husband. Patel arrives and starts operating on Sarah. Steven finally comes to the hospital too and Evan lashes out at him for his behavior towards Sarah. Roger gently tells Tara that her husband is a vegetable and won't get better. It's up to her to decide if she'll let him go or put him or have the machines keep him alive. Jill is impressed by how Roger seems to genuinely care for the patients and their families. Patel brings grim news for Sarah; the tube and part of the uterus had to be removed. A frantic Sarah wonders if a test-tube pregnancy is still an option but Patel can't say for sure. Steven asks Sarah for forgiveness but she wants out of the marriage. Evan and Kelly seem to find that old sparkle again. Jill and Roger, however, break up after Jill asks Roger if he can give all of himself to her like to his patients.moreless
