April Showers is the 18th episode of the 7th episode of "E.R."
ODDS AND FATE ARE STACKED AGAINST DRS. GREENE AND CORDAY AS THEY FIGHT TO GET TO THEIR WEDDING: On their rainy wedding day, Drs. Greene (Anthony Edwards) and Corday (Alex Kingston) must fight fate to get to the altar as he overcomes several roadblocks until he is waylaid in the street by a nasty bleeding pregnant woman (guest star Alex Kapp Horner); meanwhile, she contends with last-minute details and her feuding divorced parents (guest stars Judy Parfitt and Paul Freeman).
Elsewhere, several ER staff try to free themselves from work to attend the ceremonies, including Dr. Finch (Michael Michele) and Dr. Benton (Eriq La Salle), ever mindful of the irony that he once dated Corday.
However, the uninvited Dr. Weaver (Laura Innes) heads for an out-of-town medical conference and meets a friendly and appreciative man (guest star Casey Biggs).
When a prison van overturns, Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle) tries to save the life of a crushed corrections officer and gets some ribbing about his young girlfriend (guest star Lourdes Benedicto) while Abby (Maura Tierney) treats a teenaged female prisoner (guest star Mandy Freund).
Dr. Chen (Ming-Na) ministers to a hypothermic boy (guest star Ryan Wilson) found asleep on a frozen field. Goran Visnjic, Paul McCrane and Erik Palladino also star.
