Episode Summary

EDIT
Under the Radar
AIRED:
Tim's old friend Billy Andrews is dying from AIDS and asks Tim to get him marihuana as it helps with the pain. Knowing that Suzanne went to Woodstock, Tim asks her but Suzanne is concerned the partners will wrongfully suspect she uses drugs and decides to keep her mouth shut. A nervous woman, Alice Springs, comes to Evan for a physical to give to her boss as she is to start working full-time. Roger takes Tim to a dealer to get marihuana but they are busted by the cops and arrested. Late at night, Sarah catches Alice going through the archives, looking for her patient's file. Evan learns through Alice's test results that she has lupus. Alice tells Evan that if her boss finds out, she'll never get the full-time job she so desperately needs. Kelly worries the divorce is affecting Nick and asks Evan to talk to him. The media-happy Roger and his equal-minded attorney, Warren Spillman, go out to the media and make a speech on how important it is to get marihuana to sick people. Tim and Evan fear this will have a negative effect on the practice and call for Warren's dismissal. But Roger stays in the media, proclaiming how much effort and care he puts into the patients that need marihuana. He's even approached by Dwight Anthony of the celebrity action-committee. Sarah and Evan go to Alice's boss, Mr. Snow, with a deal: he lets Alice continue working and they'll treat all his employees at their hospital the same way they do their fee for service patients. That's not the case with most hospitals and Mr. Snow agrees. Billy's condition worsens and Suzanne gets him marihuana - but reassures Tim she's responsible and not using herself. Tim gives Roger a rude awakening as he asks him the name of the patient for which he does everything to get marihuana. Roger can't remember Billy's name and realizes he's been acting for all the wrong reasons. He tries to make amends by sitting at Billy's bedside. Alice and her two kids bring Evan supper to thank him. But seeing them eat reminds Evan of his and Kelly's failed marriage.moreless
