Do the Right Thing
Private Practice Season 2 Episode 20 (03/26/09)
Naomi and Sam
Duncan, the principal at Sunnydale High and old friend of Naomi and Sam's, is an attorney trying a malpractice case and Sam is his expert witness.
Sam ends up getting slammed by the prosecution, who tears him apart. Naomi comes to his rescue, catching his free-falling ego, and he dives back into the case.
He then figures out what actually happened. The doctor on trial, Dr. Allen, did indeed make a mistake that killed the patient. Allen asks Sam to cover for him.
The next day on the stand, Sam almost does that, but the clever prosecution realizes his careful words mean that Allen did indeed miss something.
Sam ends up telling the truth, losing the case, but saving his reputation and conscience. Meanwhile, Naomi goes out on a date with Duncan.
Cooper's 12-year-old patient, Sarah, is sexually active, and her mom isn't doing anything to keep her from doing it. Yvonne just wants Sarah on birth control, but Cooper pushes his views.
She's getting sexy texts from other kids, and just before he calls CPS, Naomi comes in saying Sarah's bloodwork shows she's pregnant.
When the news is broken to Sarah and Yvonne, Yvonne immediately says she's going to have an abortion. Cooper goes off the handle and yells at Yvonne, asking where she thought it was headed.
Sarah says she wants to keep the baby. Yvonne admits she screwed up, and Cooper tells her he has to work on Sarah.
Pete's young patient Ben is trying to set his mom, Lisa (guest star Idina Mendel, who is Taye Diggs' wife), up with him. Pete asks her out. Later, after Ben has a severe allergy attack, Pete saves him.
Violet discusses her jealousy with Charlotte, she tells Violet about sleeping with Archer, and Violet pounces on her.
Charlotte fires back with this - Violet can sleep with two different men, get pregnant, not find out who's baby she's carrying, expect to be taken seriously and have her jealousy validated? She knows she's right.
Later, when Pete tells Violet he's asking Lisa out, she's supportive.
He's really, really angry, and regressing, but he's at least getting some action. Sam gives him a lecture but he's not having it.
Addison is making house calls to Morgan, on bed rest. Addison tells her she needs to have her cervix sewn together in order to keep from losing the baby. Minutes later, Morgan confides that this baby is the only thing holding her marriage together.
After almost losing Morgan, Noah has a moment of clarity, and realizes that he could have almost lost his wife because he's been chasing after Addison.
The next morning, Morgan tells Addison that Noah hasn't been back to see her since her near-death experience. Addison finds him, and tells him he's the kind of man who will put aside his feelings and be there for his wife.
In the end, Noah shows up at Addison's doorway, They share one incredibly hot kiss, and she kicks him out again.
