"Day For Knight" is the first and season premiere episode of the fifth season of ER. It first aired on NBC on September 24, 1998. It was written by Christopher Chulack. It was the first appearance of Kellie Martin as Medical Student Lucy Knight who doesn't make good impression in her first shift in the ER.
Third-Year Medical Student Lucy Knight starts her ER shift and has a hard first day. Carol takes Lucy under her wing when she was unable to perform a simple procedure. Doug and Weaver clash over the terms of his probation over his unauthorized detox work with baby Josh.
Third-year med student Lucy Knight reports to the ER for the first day of her rotation. Greene takes a paternal interest in her, helping her get acquainted, but she gets off to a bad start with the irritable Carter.
