Murphy is commuting on a bus and listening to music.

At the hospital, all the docs are talking about a gala.

Doctor Park is introduced to everyone.

Dr. Murphy and Dr. Reznick are consulting with a patient, Spirit, who was born with a deformity that needs to be corrected. Her heart is not covered by a breastplate. She tells them she's never been hugged. 

Dr. Melendez, Dr. Browne and Dr. Kalu are working with Eric, a child and liver transplant patient whose body is rejecting his first donated liver. He is going to need a new one, so Dr. Browne and Dr. Kalu are instructed to find one.

Dr. Resnick is talking to Dr. Murphy about a tuxedo. She insists he purchase an expensive tux because she says that is how he will be judged and there are a lot of people to impress at the gala. 

A man in prison for seven murders is a donor for the boy. He's blood type is O, so it's next to impossible to find him a donor and this will be the boy's second liver and his only hope. He's trying to make amends by donating his liver and the doctors are discussing whether he should be allowed to donate. Dr. Park doesn't trust him and is against it. They got approval, though, so the prisoner is coming.

Back to Spirit. Her menstrual cycle made her heart grow too much. They have a plan to wait until she's 18, but she doesn't want to wait and is angry.

Eric doesn't want the liver because it's from a murderer and he thinks it's evil.

Dr. Reznick has an idea on how to fix Spirit's chest by creating an expandable sternum that grows with the patient, but Dr. Murphy disagrees with it because it's experimental. 

Akoi is asking Aiden to speak at the gala. They flirt.

The prisoner is being brought to the hospital. Slow mo. Ominous music. Dr. Park makes a snide comment to the other two docs about not worrying, throwing her comment back at her (10:25) "Don't worry, he tutors inmates and volunteers at the library."

Shawn is talking to Dr. Andrews and how he looks. Asks for tuxedo advice. His advice is to rent and basically tells him only his talent matters.

Back to the prisoner. Armed guards are outside the operating room. He's having an allergic reaction to the anesthesia. His eyes and tongue swell up. The doctors had to intubate and give him steroids, but he can't have the surgery because he can't have anesthesia. Bors wants them to try again. He's upset that he can't do something good. 

Dr. Melendez is talking to Eric's parents. He only has one day to live.

In the operating room with Dr. Murphy and Dr. Resnick,. Resnick is trying to convince Shawn that Dr. Andrews is lying to him. They are operating on spriti. Her new sternum fits over her heart. Reznick says she likes Shawn but doesn't respect him and he uses his autism as a crutch.

On the way out of the hospital and back to prison, Boris takes the guards gun. Park is talking him down and finds out Boris wants to kill himself. He doesn't want life saving measures. Dr. Browne tells him not to kill himself, but Dr. Park says it's up to him (Boris.) He then shoots himself in the mouth and kills himself.

Back at the gala, Browne and Kalu show up and go to dance. Shawn is still by himself and anxious, holding his plastic scalpel. He gets overwhelmed and leaves.

Shawn is back on the hospital floor. He goes to visit Spirit and watches her with her friends, chatting and hugging.

At the Gala, Browne and Kalu are dancing. He's realizing he's more into her than she is into him. Jared loves her but she doesn't love him and he's just realizing that. He breaks up with her.
