NBC Description

ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENTS: Dr. Benton is chastised by Nurse Haleh (Yvette Freeman), Nurse Hathaway and his mother's new physical therapist (Gloria Reubens) for his condescending attitude.

Dr. Morgenstern (William H. Macy), impressed by Dr. Greene's performance, offers him an attending position upon completion of his residency which doesn't sit well with Greene's out-of-state wife, Jennifer (Christine Harnos).

Meanwhile, a terminal patient (Linda Kelsey) asks for Greene's help in ending her life and a poisonous pet snake gets loose in the ER.
