Storyline

Susan Lewis must overcome her fear of flying when she and Mark Greene fly out to the scene of a serious accident involving a family of four. The mother's injuries are relatively minor but her husband is suffering from memory loss. Their teenage son undergoes surgery as does their 10 day-old daughter, Megan. When Benton is left to complete the operation on the baby, he makes an error and Dr. Keaton has to take over. Nurse Hathaway has started her pre-med studies but is wondering if she'll ever make it. Jeanie Boulet and Dr. Maggie Doyle find themselves trying to deal with the corpse of a patient who wants to be cryogenically preserved. Hathaway has to deal with a ward nurse, Rhoda Sterling, who is rotated to the ER but can't keep up with hectic pace and makes a near fatal error. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Ironically, for an episode about one of the characters being frightened of flying (Susan Lewis), Director Christopher Chulack refused to go up in the helicopter as he's terrified of them. Conversely, Sherry Stringfield thoroughly enjoyed her trip up in the chopper. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Abby Keaton: I'm sorry, I should have never left you unsupervised. There are nuances in neonatal surgery. The liver's more friable in newborns.
Dr. Peter Benton: I wanted a clean field before I closed.
Dr. Abby Keaton: Yeah, you said that.
Dr. Peter Benton: It seemed appropriate.
Dr. Abby Keaton: What's at issue here is that you ignored my specific instructions.
Dr. Peter Benton: I didn't ignore anything! I followed standard operative procedure. Look, I've done it at least a dozen times in other patients.
Dr. Abby Keaton: This is not "another patient"! This is an infant! Outside, now.
