Episode Summary

EDIT
Cassie's Choice
AIRED:
Cassie Peter's is pregnant and plans to give her baby up for adoption. Although neither Craig (the baby's father) nor Joanne (Cassie's mother) is present for the delivery, Monica is, posing as a nurse. After holding her daughter, Cassie changes her mind and runs away, much to the chagrin of the Feldman's, the adoptive parents. Monica and Tess are keeping watch over the mother and child when they learn from Adam, that the child is seriously ill. Monica gently prods Cassie to take the child to the hospital, where the teenager begins to realize she is not ready for the rigors of motherhood. Monica's revelation reinforces this fact, and Cassie returns home and gives the baby to the Feldman's. At the infant dedication, Mrs. Feldman announces that she and Ben have named their baby Faith. Cassie asks for a moment with her daughter and plays the flute for her legacy of music that runs in the family.moreless

  • Give Alyson Hannigan a good script and she can do anything.

    9.5
    Alyson Hannigan guest stars as Cassie Peters, a pregnant teen who is a very gifted musician. Cassie plans to give her baby up for adoption to a childless couple but with Monica acting as midwife, a beautiful baby girl is born and Cassie finds herself unable to let her baby go after all. Her mother, played by Susan Ruttan, is having trouble with the whole thing too, so Cassie runs away, taking her daughter with her, not realising that she has a rare blood disease that will kill her if she is not given a transfusion as soon as possible.

    When the baby is finally taken to a hospital, all is well, but Cassie realises how tough being a single mother will be and decides to give her up for adoption after all.

    A heart-wrenching episode which shows how difficult decisions like this are for everyone concerned. Great acting by Alyson and a very important storyline.moreless
