St. Eligius staff works to cope with the demands imposed by the outbreak of Legionnaires' Disease, which has necessitated moving patients to already overcrowded wards. The Centers for Disease Control have sent their own doctor to oversee the epidemic. Meanwhile, former psychiatric patient Tweety has returned to the hospital. She's three months pregnant, which is a problem since she was confined to St. Elegius until two months previously. Someone is stealing large quantities of medical supplies, a more serious problem in light of the lost revenue caused by the
outbreak. And Daniels tries to sell his car.
