NBC DescriptionEdit

A HURTING DR. CARTER RETURNS TO ER WHILE DR. GREENE COPES WITH CRUSH OF PATIENTS: In pain, Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle) hobbles back on crutches into the ER for the first time since his life-threatening attack and treats an overdosed suicidal patient (guest star Keith Langsdale) with a controversial new procedure while a besieged Dr. Greene (Anthony Edwards) tries to take charge of a chaotic shift.

Among Greene's runaway problems are his cantankerous father (guest star John Cullum) who resists treatment for his lung cancer, a poisonous Gila monster lizard on the loose and a non-stop torrent of complicated cases, one of which concerns his girlfriend Dr. Corday's (Alex Kingston) well-meaning attempt to keep a brain-dead accident victim alive long enough to secure permission to harvest his organs.

Elsewhere, Abby (Maura Tierney) is devastated when she makes a simple mistake that could cost a terminally ill cancer patient (guest star Cal Gibson) what little time he has left.

Dr. Chen (Ming-Na) is distracted by a hunky nurse (guest star Morris Chestnut, "Boyz N the Hood") who helps out in between receiving treatment for his own fainting spells.

Amid the uproar, Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) is interrupted by her nanny's calls regarding her crying twins; Dr. Benton (Eriq La Salle) and Dr. Finch (Michael Michele) enjoy a sensual game of pool. Laura Innes, Goran Visnjic and Erik Palladino also star.
