Mark Greene finally works up the courage to ask Susan Lewis out on a date. She turns him down and he soon comes to the conclusion that she is seeing Dr. Morgenstern. The truth however is even more shocking. With little Megan still in intensive care, Dr. Benton fears making other errors so he goes to extraordinary lengths to save a young man who is very likely brain dead. Nurse Rhonda Sterling is again rotated to the ER and reveals to a skeptical Nurse Hathaway just why hospital administration is assigning her to jobs for which she is not qualified. Dr. Carter doesn't believe that a patient awaiting surgery, Mr. Percy, is mentally competent but he doesn't have the gumption to tell Dr. Anspaugh. Drs. Carter and Keaton take an interest in one another. Written by

This is not an accurate scenario of cryonics. The patient is not packed in ice as seen in this episode. When a person has a contract to be frozen, a cryogenics team (not just one person) are alerted that clinical death is imminent and come prepared to wherever the patient is; hospital or nursing home, for example. Within minutes after the heart stops beating a cryogenics team begin to prepare the body by injecting cryoprotectants intravenously, which keeps ice from forming in the cells during the freezing process. Ice formation in the cells cause them to burst. The body is then transported to one of the facilities and frozen in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of cooling to near 77.15 Kelvin (approximately -196.01°C). There is no cryonics facility in California. The only two in the United Sates are in Scottsdale, Arizona and Clinton Township, Michigan. There is also a cryonics facility in Moscow, Russia. To date, there is no evidence that this process can be reversed and the person restored to normal. See more

and Morgenstern are going out. I can handle that. What bothers me is that she didn't tell me.
If I were going out with Morgenstern, I wouldn't tell anybody.
