Ian’s in the hospital elevator and he has some kind of reaction, his hands are shaking and he is grabbing his chest. When he sees Tabitha, she says his eyes are black. He says it is nothing, an annual eye checkup, is what drops will do. She says her cousin had eyes like that when he was going through their withdrawal. He asks her if they can move his drug test, and she says unfortunately no. Cade goes to see a patient, 21 years old, the name is Diana and she asks Cade about her baby, she gave birth late last night.

Ian hears a baby crying, he picks her up to try to calm her and all of a sudden has to run because he is sick.
The baby needs surgery asap and Ian wants to postpone until after 4 pm because he knows he is detoxing for that drug test. Billie tells him that the baby needs the surgery as quickly as possible, they can’t wait. Ian goes back to his office and looks up online how to buy a sample of urine, and he does it, which costs him $62.39. Ian goes to see the mother of the baby, Diane, he tells her that the baby needs surgery to remove a sack of fluid on the back. He is a little harsh and Cade cuts in. Then, outside the room, Ian acts all upset because Diana is a heroin addict. Leela is with Devon, he talks to her about his case that has myasthenia. He says maybe her treatment didn’t work because they are treating the wrong thing. He goes to see Marty and tells her that he wants to take a step back. Maybe her original diagnosis was flawed. She agrees to do more tests. Diana is going through withdrawal and she is getting really angry, Cade is there, and Diana is in shock.

Devon does an MRI and there is a tumor, he believes Marty has lung cancer. Ian is breaking down, he can barely stand and has blurred vision. Bille comes in and says baby Jane is going to the ER, they don’t have any more time. Ian tells her to start without him. It is 4 pm, Ian goes to have his test and finds out the technician is late and he is just about to lose it. Billie messages him to go to surgery and he runs to his office to get his pills so he can go into surgery.

Devon tells Marty that she has cancer, and she was getting the wrong treatment. Cancer is not good news, but now that they know, they can fight it. If she fights, she could get some of her independence back. Ian is out of surgery and Billie is not happy, she tells him that she should not have had to do what she did.
Ian is called to the lab for his test, on his way, he hears a man looking for assistance who is in his room. Ian goes in and offers to empty his urine bottle. Ian got away with using someone else’s sample for his test. Cade goes to see Diana who asks where she is. Cade tells her she had her spleen removed, but she should be ok.
