At Susan's urging, he takes the night off but unfortunately for him, the new head of the ER Dr. 'Wild Willy' Swift arrives unannounced. Susan impresses Swift with her handling of many cases on a busy night. She also has to deal with the case of a young man who has had the hiccups for two days but may in fact be suffering from something far more serious. Nurse Hathaway and fiancée Tag are still working out the details of their wedding. Peter Benton's mother is still hospitalized and he will not accept that her age and her injuries mean that she will need permanent nursing care. Dr. Ross is now dating Diane Leeds. John Carter and Deb Chen's attempts at oneupmanship is starting to take on ridiculous proportions. Written by garykmcd

Full Moon, Saturday Night (#1.20)
24 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Both Dr. Greene and Dr. Benton have to deal with guilty feelings and try to make their life function in this one. It is pretty sad to see Peter trying to fight about his mother's well being and refuse to accept that she indeed needs a nursing home. Her falling out of bed because of this opens his eyes and he goes for help to the nurse he fired because she tried to reason to him that his mom needs restriction for her bed. Very sad story and goes so well with the characters.

Mark has to deal with his guilt feelings as well. And of course there is more to it, he also has the problem of being left by his wife. When she comes to him it is a touching moment. I feel pretty bad for him. Hope he will be well soon
