Racial tensions between the Irish and black kids escalate. Dr. Fiscus treats a prostitute with appendicitis - when her friends visit they disrupt the hospital. Dr. White's wife comes bearing unpleasant news: she's pregnant. Dr. Craig throws a party for Sven Holstrum, a visiting cardiac surgeon. Dr. Ehrlich tries to escape the party, but cannot, so he needs a date. And then he makes a fool of himself when he drinks away his nervousness. When a young black boy dies of the violence, Kevin O'Connor feels responsible, and threatens his own life, because he didn't tell the truth about what happened.
