On his return to Chicago, Carter gets a downright chilly reaction from Abby who asks him to return her apartment key. At work, they tip toe around one another, neither really willing to discuss their feelings. A new med student, Neela Rasgotra arrives for her ER rotation. Dr. Pratt is paying too much attention to her for Dr. Chen's taste. A woman passes out at the wheel of her car severely injuring herself and the three children in the car with her. Neela makes a good call in the case. Carter treats a man whose HIV has become full-blown AIDS. The ER itself is a bit chaotic due to major reconstruction. The ER desk receives a call from Africa saying that Luka Kovac has been killed. Carter decides to return to the Congo to retrieve his body.

Two different Volvo station wagons are used in the crash sequence: in the first shots, a champagne gold 700/800 model series wagon is shown as evidenced by the door panel detailing, and the taillight/rear hatch design; in the shots when the truck is bearing down and making contact, a yellow gold 200 series wagon is shown which has the signature "boxy" early Volvo shape as well as the old Volvo insignia tag on the side panel and the non-metallic paint.

Dr. Robert Romano
Yeah, try to hide your wild enthusiasm at my return. I find overt displays of emotion embarrassing.
