Abby plays with fire when she intercedes on behalf of a sick young girl who needs a bone marrow transplant -- but the most eligible donor is her half-sister whose divorced mother refuses to okay the procedure out of spite for the girl's father who's her ex-husband. In another family, Dr. Greene admits his pneumonia-ridden father into the hospital and shares a rare but memorable father-son moment as the older man's time begins to wind down. Dr. Kovac gallantly offers to help Nurse Hathaway buy a used car and they enjoy their spring day on the town. Likewise, a daytripping Dr. Benton takes Dr. Finch out to Los Angeles to visit his toddler son and meet his sister Jackie who can't help but interrogate her guest. Dr. Carter is tormented by visions of his recent brush with death and draws Dr. Weaver's concern upon her return.
