PlotEdit

The ER has to deal with a stripper and some shady dealings from apparent FBI agents. Lucy reveals to Carter that she's still on Ritalin. Hathaway begins to reveal her pregnancy to those closest to her, including a fax to Doug. Dr. Anspaugh decides that the trauma fellowship will go to Benton, who then faces anger from Romano and Corday. A car accident involving teenagers may have been alcohol-related and leaves one teenager with grievous third-degree burns.

Short summaryEdit

The ER docs tend to three teenagers who were in an accident on the way to their senior prom. Lucy comes into the ER to work but is extremely tired. Greene and Carter treat the most severely injured, a boy suffering from third degree burns over 80% of his body. Benton receives the ER trauma fellowship. Carter becomes slightly suspicous when Lucy picks up randomly. Carol finally tells Doug about her pregnancy; Kerry also figures it out. Mark and Elizabeth draw closer. Carter later overhears Randi telling Lucy that her prescription is ready, he questions her and accuses her of been on speed, Lucy confesses she has taken Ritalin for ADHD since the 5th grade. Carter objects and recommends that she stops immediately as she is 24 and shouldn't be taking medicine for hyperactive children. Lucy tells Carter she will think about it but he shouldn't interfere in her business. "FBI agents" bring in a shot stripper. Carter removes a live cockroach from a patient's ear and freaks-out.
