ER: No Brain, No Gain

While obsessing over a critically ill baby in his care, Dr. Benton uses heroic measures to sustain the life of a gang banger already declared brain dead by Dr. Ross. Ross is again second-guessed when Dr. Greene steps in to diffuse Ross's argument with the father of a 6-year-old boy with an infected wound. Dr. Carter's suspicion that a surgical patient has psychological problems leads to a confrontation with Dr. Dale Edson. Nurse Hathaway continues to clash with an inexperienced nurse, who makes another serious mistake. Dr. Greene treats a slightly injured social anthropologist who gives him new insight into human courtship behavior.
