Unfortunately, he tells the wrong parents that their son is dead. Dough Ross tells a young patient that he will not be separated from his schizophrenic mother knowing that she will likely be hospitalized for a long time. Susan Lewis tells Mark that she is dating the psychiatric attending physician Div Cvetic. She also treats a salesman whose cell phone is having an odd effect on hospital equipment. Benton forgets that he was supposed to sit with his mother while his sister and brother-in-law were to go out for their tenth anniversary dinner.
GETTING PERSONAL: Dr. Greene returns from relocating his family to Milwaukee. Dr. Benton disappoints his brother when he is "too busy" to visit their mother.
Dr. Ross attempts to reconcile with Nurse Hathaway and also protects a pregnant teen's confidentiality.
