Mark's hesitating about telling Rachel about the divorce but realizes he has to. Rachel meanwhile doesn't like Susan being around when she and Mark go ice-skating. Benton has to attend a banquet at Vucelich's home and, after Carter laughs at the idea of Benton going with his sister Jackie, asks Jeanie to go with him. Carter does everything he can to get rid of Mrs. and Mr. Rubadoux and a kilt wearing Morgenstern ends up in the ER with a broken leg.
