NBC DescriptionEdit

DR. GREENE WONDERS IF HIS OWN FUTURE IS MIRRORED IN HIS PATIENTS' PROGNOSES: While Dr. Greene (Anthony Edwards) tries to immerse himself in his work, he reluctantly discovers that his aggressive illness is hampering his coordination and watching other end-stage patients struggle with their treatments has a sobering effect on him.

Elsewhere, Greene has a poignant reunion with his ex-wife (guest star Christine Harnos) and later mediates between the staff and a stubborn but deluded homeless man (guest star Paul Benjamin).

Dr. Pratt (Mekhi Phifer), a self-confident new intern, gets some advice from Greene about his bedside manner; Abby (Maura Tierney) can move out of Dr. Kovac's (Goran Visnjic) apartment when her abusive neighbor moves away.

Greene treats a family man (guest star Ken Lerner) who receives the worst kind of news; an Egyptologist (guest star Blaire Baron) is hospitalized for a rare disease; confusion over an elderly woman's wishes results in heroic measures to resuscitate her.

Noah Wyle, Laura Innes, Alex Kingston, Ming-Na, Sherry Stringfield and Sharif Atkins also star.
