A confident second-year resident Dr. Pratt wants to show off during the graveyard shift but his heroics sometimes backfire, especially in his contempt for an asymptomatic husband who temporarily loses his speech -- and in the case of a boy whose treatment is delayed after he swallows a quarter. As Dr. Weaver decries the "incompetence" of her staff, she too makes a grievous error while a screaming man with a broken leg must wait endless hours and Neela deals with a little girl who arrives with her beloved grandmother whose status is DNR -- "Do Not Resuscitate." Elsewhere, Abby finds herself desperate for money and credit and later meets both Dr. Kovac and his new girlfriend. Likewise, Dr. Corday warms up to Dr. Dorset.
