In the ER, a young man has an erection for 4 hours and requires medical care. Dr. Reznick inserts a needle to save him from having permanent damage.  A young boy has lockjaw from putting a light bulb in his mouth. Dr.Muphy attempts to call Dr. Lim for advice on the boy’s case, but she is handling a personal matter; she is in court, this is her third violation in one year. Dr. Lim excuses herself, she speaks to the two residents and tells them that surgery is not an option for the lockjaw. The judge is annoyed and pushes Dr. Lim to the end of the day, then she fines her $1500 and suspends her license for one year. Dr. Lim starts to get angry and her lawyer advises her to be quiet, she doesn’t and gets herself landed in jail.

Dr. Brown tries to encourage Marcus to change some of his new policies, but it fails and he tells her to make sure not to forsake her usual good judgment.

Dr. Lim is back in court, the judge is not happy about being interrupted.

During the surgery of the young wife, there are lesions on her ovaries, her uterus, this is why she was in so much pain. Dr. Brown walks out of the operating room, she was on edge because of her conversation with Marcus. Dr. Brown goes to see the husband and explains to him that the surgery is now going to take longer.

Lea keeps calling Dr. Murphy because he told her to go back to Hershey. Dr. Murphy gets an idea on how to get the light bulb out of the child’s mouth. He uses a surgical pouch and successfully releases the light bulb.

The erection is back, Dr. Murphy and Dr. Reznick head back to see him. Dr. Murphy wants to call Dr. Lim, Dr. Reznick wants to give him more injections. Dr. Murphy goes to see Dr. Glassman who tells him about a procedure that will buy him time but not solve the problem.

Back in the ER, it seems like, for every lesion they find, there are more. The women’s pressure is dropping, she is bleeding out. Everyone reacts quickly and stabilizes the patient.

Dr. Murphy goes to see the man with the erection problem and tells him about the procedure that actually requires a bigger needle than the last time to restore blood flow. Dr. Reznick calls him out of the room, just then Dr.Murphy notices a twitch in the man’s foot and realizes the problem, he calls Dr. Lim who orders them to prep for surgery. The surgery goes well, Dr. Lim gives credit to Dr. Murphy and Dr. Reznick.

Dr. Lim is released from jail, the judge figured that she suffered long enough being in jail for nine hours.

Dr. Melendez and the other doctors are stressed and tired, Marcus sees them arguing with each other, he tells Melendez to take a break for all of them to return and be professional. The woman requires risky surgery and requires the husband’s consent. While resuming surgery, they find more problems and Dr. Melendez believes she requires a full hysterectomy. The husband won’t make the decision, he tells Dr. Brown to make it and she decides that the woman’s life is worth more than having a child and orders a full hysterectomy. The women is awake from surgery, her husband is thrilled. Dr. Melendez tells her that they had to remove her uterus to reconstruct her bladder.

Marcus calls in Dr. Melendez and the surgical team and they all have each other’s back. He congratulates them and tells them to go home and get some rest.

Dr. Murphy leaves the hospital and Lea is there, he tells her if she wants to talk, he will listen because she has been a good friend. She goes on to tell him that he is a jackass and friendship is a two way street.
