ER: How the Finch Stole Christmas

On Christmas Eve, a stubborn Lucy tries everything to help a desperate young woman, who is running out of time, get a life-saving heart transplant. A festive Dr. Carter, decked-out as Santa Claus, aids a wounded gangbanger and then offers to trade a gift for his gun, which prompts a flood of other gang members willing to trade their "gats" for choice presents. Dr. Finch regretfully ruins a dysfunctional family's holiday when she places Chad Kottmeier, a besotted teenager whom she previously treated, in the hospital's alcohol treatment program for his own safety. Hathaway gets help from kindly Dr. Kovac when she suspects that one of her four-week old twins might have a fever. An uneasy Dr. Corday must continue to treat a repulsive murder suspect; Dr. Weaver is shown some glitches in the ER's computer that was rated Y2K compliant; Dr. Benton receives shocking news from an angry Carla; and the ER swarms with sickly Santas.
