The ER is busy with victims of a gang shootout while Carter is late because he's just back from a holiday and stuck in traffic. When he arrives, he can't answer Benton's medical questions, who was already annoyed with Carter because he was late.

Even though just prior to the scene, both actors had been in air conditioning, the minute they stepped outside, they started sweating profusely. This caused problems for Noah Wyle

Just what you need, Doug.
