Episode cast overview:
Dr. Jordan
Cynthia Mann ...
Bruno's Owner


At the anniversary of Jim Hansen's wife's death, he proposes the same commemoration as she in her nightly dream to Syd: a fancy dinner, yet he feels guilty about a letter ma read by accident on Janie's wedding day. Little sister rather remembers their last row that day; seeing dad go trough ma's hat boxes they try there, he catches their failing and won't explain except the letter may have killed ma. Robbie is atypically grumpy and rattled by the idea of 'remembering the good times', resists going at all, tells Syd she wasn't here and 'won't take the blame', just like ma in Syd's dream. Syd is furiously unimpressed when lover Kyle Moran's rude oncologist Dr. Jordan predicts his surgery will probably proceed from definitive arm-diagnosis to amputation, and blatantly refuses their request to let Syd observing in ER... Doug and the pets enjoy his first working day, Joanie is puzzled by his 'canine' idiosyncrasies, especially dog food addiction, which he attributes to a head oil ... Written by KGF Vissers
