Storyline

Both Mark Greene and Susan Lewis have been on a round on unsuccessful blind dates but are enjoying each other's company whenever the opportunity arises. Doug Ross on the other hand finds it almost impossible to have any kind of an emotional relationship with a woman. Hathaway is having financial difficulties and desperately wants to sell her house. Carter sleeps in and finds he is again covering the ER while Dennis Gant gets to assist in an operation. Concerned by Jeanie Boulet's HIV status, Dr. Benton pushes her aside during a trauma leading Dr. Weaver to wonder just what is going on. All of the staff at County General is on edge as rumors fly that the hospital may be closed. Written by garykmcd
