Storyline

Holling impresses Kelly with chivalric 'bravery', but a remark from her makes him inquire about circumcision - not recommended for an adult gentile according to Joel. After Chris broadcasts the locally unprecedented procedure, Holling dares not pull out. Maggie pretends to her visiting father, Frank O'Connell, she has a 'perfect boy-friend', without warning Dr. Joel Fleischman that he's the man for the job - so he enjoys overdoing it. Mayor Maurice commandeers first Ed as the outdoors 'morgue guard', then Joel as a reluctant 'coroner' to help him start the investigation for a John Doe corps, who is soon claimed by the locals although nobody knows him.
