While Evan attends to her, Roger and Tim look after the other injured victims. Vinny, a guy from the ambulance, is getting much worse.

They make love at the practice in nearly all the offices, but later they are unable to retrieve some of their personal items. Oh uh! What if anyone finds out? Sarah and Evan try to act very casual but they try a bit too hard. Besides, the others find it weird that they keep searching through all the furniture. Suzanne introduces Jason to Leanne.

Charlie uses Cadmium in his paintings but Roger orders him to stop painting or else he'll die. Charlie is not happy to stop painting but is convinced by Nicole and Roger. Not long after, Charlie is rushed to the hospital again, and the doctors are unable to save him. It turns out he died from Cadmium poisoning. Roger is devastated but Eleanor is convinced that Nicole has something to do with it: she is now a very wealthy widow. Leanne goes to Tim and Sarah, wondering if she should tell Suzanne. They convince her to do so and make Suzanne take a test. To her horror, Suzanne learns the test is positive. Feeling totally cheated, she refuses to see Jason again. Roger finds out that the large dose of Cadmium in Charlie's body couldn't have come just from painting a picture. He confronts Nicole but she claims Charlie must have killed himself when he couldn't paint anymore. Leanne and Tim offer Suzanne support and she reconciles with Jason. Roger finds a mask Charlie put on while he painted and has it tested: it's sprayed with Cadmium. He gives it to the police and Nicole is arrested. At last she reveals her true face to Roger as she tells him the evidence is too vague and she'll get the best lawyers.moreless

Roger is annoyed and starts competing until the other car pulls up right in front of him. Eleanor hits her head quite hard and then Dave, the angry, muscular man from the other car, assaults their car. However, Dave suddenly falls to the ground in pain. Tim is approached by Carol Weller about her grown up daughter Stephanie - a long term patient of Tim's. Stephanie is retarded but she and her new boyfriend Mark (also retarded) desperately want a baby. Carol knows they can't take care of baby and fears she'll be stuck with it. Frustrated, she considers going to Mexico to get Stephanie sterilized. Roger is very concerned as Eleanor suffers from headaches after hitting her head. He forces her to take an MRI to find out if everything is all right. Roger is later surprised when Dave insists he be his doctor. Turns out he's ill because he's been taking too much steroids. Roger lashes out at him and tries to persuade him to stop using steroids. Tim briefly discusses Stephanie with Leanne. Leanne takes it upon herself to contact Stephanie and Mark to inform them Carol is planning to sterilize Stephanie. Evan is frustrated that Sarah seems to be harboring feelings for Phillip. Dennis Rodman gives him some advice on how to approach Sarah. Dave gives Roger a sincere apology and promises to stop using steroids. Tim examines Stephanie and finds out she's pregnant. However, Tim is furious with Leanne for going behind his back. Leanne stands for her decision and reveals she cares extra much for all patients after her daughter died of leukemia some years back: She wants patients to get a better treatment than her daughter did. Stephanie is terrified of her mother and runs away from her and into the streets where she's hit by a car. She survives but has bleedings. There are two options: either she goes into surgery immediately but that's risky for the baby, or they wait and see if the bleeding stops. Carol forces Stephanie to agree to the surgery - she's taking no chances. But as she talks with Tim later, she changes her mind for the sake of her daughter's happiness: they'll wait. Eleanor's MRI reveals she's OK but she's not happy with Roger: if he constantly treats her like she's going to break just because of her prior medical condition, she can't take it. Stephanie's bleeding stops and Leanne apologizes to Tim. They reconcile. Sarah assures Evan she doesn't love Phillip. To his surprise, Evan learns that Sarah is in love with him and they kiss passionately.moreless

    Whither Thou Goest
    Episode 5
    Kelly goes to Roger with her fear of cancer, which is common in her family. Just as Roger is examining her breasts, Evan walks in for what becomes a very awkward moment. Kelly wants Roger to perform a test, which will show how big her chances are of getting cancer. Evan is angry that she has gone to Roger with this instead of him and thinks the test is a bad idea. Tim's patient, Mark, is hospitalized and put under the care of Dr. Meyer. Tim notices a big, alarming bruise on Mark and calls for a duplex scan. But Dr. Meyer won't hear of it; she refuses to waste any money on a needless scan. Sarah prescribes some anti-depressive drugs for her ex-boyfriend John, but perhaps Sarah could need some of those herself as her domestic situation is deteriorating. Steven finally gets a job writing a screenplay for a movie but even though he hasn't worked in ages, he turns it down. Sarah is greatly frustrated. In order to scan Mark, Tim bribes a hospital technician named Jared. It turns out that Mark is actually fine but later, Jared demands $10,000 from Tim to keep quiet about disobeying Dr. Meyer's orders. However, Roger helps Tim out by threatening Jared to back off. John starts to get sort of manic after taking the medicine Sarah prescribed. He takes Sarah and Steven to a gay bar but Steven is embarrassed and leaves. Later, John gets depressed again and Sarah tells him that this medicine is wrong for him; he must change to another. John has noticed how bad her marriage is and Sarah gets depressed. Kelly too lapses into depression when the test reveals there's a large possibility she may get cancer. The kids are also affected, and Evan gets furious and punches Roger. A wild fight ensues on Kelly's lawn and she is appalled. Later, Kelly forgives Evan and he tries to comfort her. Meanwhile, Sarah tries to confront Steven but he seems to actually have gotten tired of her.moreless

    Episode 4
    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
