Episode Summary

EDIT
What About Bob?
AIRED:
Roger is very happy with his sexy date Autumn but out of the blue she tells him she's getting married! An elderly black man named Bob arrives at the practice. He doesn't sign in; just sits there. Nina starts asking him question and Bob tells her there's nothing wrong with him. He's just come there to die! Don Claybourne arrives at the practice for treatment but his hateful attitude and racist remarks towards Nina make him an unpopular guy. In fact, Tim is so provoked by Don's racist attitude that he has troubles treating him at all. Bob is spreading his words of wisdom to Roger and the others. It turns out that Bob used to live in this very building when he was a kid back when it was an apartment building. Now he's come back to die. Sarah is filling in for another doctor and has to deal with a couple of childbirths. One of her patients, the very young Courtney Wilkes, is about to give birth and she is not very cooperative. However, Sarah is worried about Courtney and orders some tests. Roger and his friend Tom Arnold are summoned by Roger's lawyer Warren Spillman, who announces that he's getting married. Roger is more or less shocked to discover that Warren's bride-to-be is none other than Autumn. Nina makes friends with the very likable Bob, who tells her that when he lived in this building, he once saw snow in L.A. Tim finds out that Don is dying from cancer and has about three months to live. When Tim is about to inform him, Don starts commenting about a photo of Tim's foster-children. Tim is unable to deal with him and doesn't tell him anything. Out in the hall, Don is attacked by Patrick after he harasses Nina. There's lots of fuzz and Roger is furious about the whole thing. Roger tells Tom Arnold about him and Autumn but Tom advises him to keep it to himself. Don ends up in the hospital and Tim is criticized for not bringing him his diagnosis. Kelly argues with Evan. She really misses him and starts kissing him. Evan responds to her. Bob has another heart-to-heart with Roger. Bob says he's had a very rich life but his only regret is that he's had no one to share it with. He advises Roger not to end up the same way. Courtney gives birth but there's something wrong about the baby and it dies shortly after. Sarah does what she can to comfort her and Courtney decides to name her dead baby girl Sarah. Tim apologizes to Don and tries to help him even though it's not what he really wants to do. Evan tells Sarah he feels a certain connection to her but he's still in love with his ex-wife. Sarah understands; she herself is married. Bob dies and the only ones at his funeral are his two new-found friends Roger and Nina. At the end of the ceremony it is snowing in L.A.moreless
