It's a busy 4th of July weekend and Carter tries to run an understaffed hospital, which is flooded with patients. A biker with HIV is left brain dead from a robbery and his girlfriend wants to donate his organs to a fellow friend, who is also infected with HIV. Carter persuades Corday to perform the organ transplant after several surgeons refused to perform the operation. Meanwhile, Ray is upset with Abby for going above him and ordering a drug test on his patient, a bicycle messenger. Abby later asks Carter out for dinner and drinks in hopes of talking to him about his past problems. Dr. Pratt is back early from his recent craniotomy and is not operating at his best capacity. Carter notices his insensitivity to a stabbing victim as well as the fact that he is still suffering from headaches and sends him home. Corday confronts Weaver on her latest surgeon choice and the fact that she was not involved in the decision-making process. Lastly, Neela looks for employment outside of the medical field and has a hard time finding a decent job.
