Susan Lewis must overcome her fear of flying when she and Mark Greene fly out to the scene of a serious accident involving a family of four. The mother's injuries are relatively minor but her husband is suffering from memory loss. Their teenage son undergoes surgery as does their 10 day-old daughter, Megan. When Benton is left to complete the operation on the baby, he makes an error and Dr. Keaton has to take over. Nurse Hathaway has started her pre-med studies but is wondering if she'll ever make it. Jeanie Boulet and Dr. Maggie Doyle find themselves trying to deal with the corpse of a patient who wants to be cryogenically preserved. Hathaway has to deal with a ward nurse, Rhoda Sterling, who is rotated to the ER but can't keep up with hectic pace and makes a near fatal error.
Did You Know?
When the caretaker for the patient who wants to be cryogenically frozen is talking to Carol she mentions the "dinosaurs in that movie". The movie is Jurassic Park by Michael Chricton who created ER. ER was meant to be a movie but they opted to work on Jurassic Park instead and ER became a series. See more
There is a bad edit at 2:30 during the diner scene with Doug, Carol, and Carol's lab partner William. From one angle Carol is unmoving holding her chin in her hand, while briefly from another angle she moves her hands down and turns to talk to Doug before the previous pose resumes. See more
