Trama, Sinossi Episodio
I medici del turno di notte si trovano a dover intervenire su una giovanissima coppia e una donna incinta, coinvolti in un incidente d'auto. Il loro, non sara' solo un intervento medico, ma anche psicologico e pratico dato che Ryan e Taylor si sono sposati di nascosto, anche se la ragazza e' minorenne, perche' le loro famiglie ostacolano, da sempre, il loro amore. E Chloe, la donna incinta, ha un fidanzato di stanza in Afghanistan e non vuole partorire prima di averlo sposato.
Sinossi originale: It's a quiet night at San Antonio Memorial and the doctors and nurses are goofing off with wheelchair racing. That is, until Ragosa mutters the "Q" word and jinxes the whole thing. Suddenly Gwen's team of paramedics smashes through the door with two teenage car crash victims, Ryan and Taylor. Ryan has a deep gash to his thigh and Taylor has a dislocated jaw and chest trauma. When they pop her jaw back into place, Taylor immediately asks how her husband is doing. Wait, her husband? The girl's 16! Turns out their parents wouldn't let them see each other, so the two lovebirds ran off to get secretly married, crashing their car on the way back. When Taylor's dad, Denny Sawyer, finds out about the marriage, he loses it, bursting into Ryan's OR and confronting his son-in-law's parents. He even gets his cop buddy to arrest the 18-year-old for sexual assault of a minor. But the arrest doesn't last long; Texas has something called the "Romeo and Juliet" law, which allows consensual intercourse with a minor within three years of age, so Ryan wasn't doing anything illegal. Upon hearing this, Denny loses it. He's an army veteran, but since he came back home, his wife left him and he can't get a job. TC commiserates with him - he knows what it's like to be a mess, but he also knows the only way not to drown in anger and self-pity is to ask for help. After TC's pep talk, Denny goes to see his daughter, whose heart rate spikes as soon as he walks in the room. They start arguing about Ryan, and suddenly she starts screaming from chest pain - her aorta is tearing in half! Scott performs emergency surgery, but while he does his best, Taylor's brain was deprived of oxygen for too long and she's comatose. There's still a possibility she can come out of it, but it's not looking good. As Denny cradles his daughter, Ryan comes down the hall, begging to know what's wrong with his wife. That's when Denny loses it, grabs his gun from his ankle holster and points it at Ryan screaming, "He killed her!" TC, positioning himself between the crazed father and his son-in-law, tries to explain Taylor isn't dead, and still has brain activity. There's still hope! But Denny doesn't listen. He takes one last look at his daughter before he turns the gun on himself. Scott and Krista try to save him, but it's no use. He's gone. In a bittersweet turn of events, just hours later, Taylor miraculously comes out of her coma. Her father killed himself for nothing. Across the ER, Scott and Jordan handle Chloe, the woman whose car Ryan and Taylor hit. She has abdominal trauma, and it turns out she's eight months pregnant. Chloe asks Jordan to call her fiancé, Tom, who's stationed at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, but there's no record of him there. Turns out, Tom is actually serving in Afghanistan and lied to Chloe so she wouldn't worry. Suddenly, Chloe starts going into labor and freaks out - she can't have the baby before she's married! She made a promise to her father, who recently died. Luckily, the hospital manages to find Tom and set up a makeshift wedding over video chat, complete with a veil, plastic tiara and bouquet. TC stands in as Tom's proxy groom while he watches from Afghanistan, but just as the hospital chaplain begins the ceremony, Chloe's monitor starts beeping. The Reverend quickly wraps up the vows as Topher, TC and Jordan race Chloe to an open trauma room. After an emergency C-section, both baby and mother are healthy, much to everyone's relief. Meanwhile, Paul lands an important patient, Marilyn Capshaw, the matriarch of the hospital's biggest donor family, who just happens to fund his residency program. Ragosa warns him that the family is a bunch of pain-in-the-ass hypochondriacs, so Paul's in for a rough night. The elderly woman is acting oddly and unabashedly flirts with Paul when he tries to examine her. All her tests come back normal, and Paul's at a loss until Topher comes over and takes a look at her eyes - she's high as a kite! Marilyn wanders off to sneak another smoke, but Paul follows her to a supply closet, where she makes fun of him for not thinking an old woman could get high, despite exhibiting all the telltale behavior. She gives the newbie some heartfelt advice: "Don't try so hard to please everybody. You'll only end up with regrets." That's when Marilyn tells Paul that his father, a world-renowned brain surgeon, called her up about his internship last year, but rather than helping him get in, he wanted the hospital to keep his son out. Paul admits his dad keeps calling him to get him to quit the ER and join his practice in Chicago, but he keeps refusing because he's terrified he won't measure up to his superstar family. "You figure out what you want to do, not from fear, but for the right reasons," Marilyn advises. "And they can go to hell if they get in your way!" At the end of the shift, Paul sits in the break room reading an email from his father pressuring him once again to join him at Johns Hopkins. After a moment, he takes Marilyn's advice and deletes the email. It's been a long, traumatic night, with a father taking his own life and a baby being brought into the world. Jordan's mother is in town, and she's been struggling with whether to tell her that she and TC got back together. Jordan's mother loved Scott and was never a fan of TC, so she figures the best option is to wait till she leaves, then break the news. But after such an emotional shift, Jordan decides it's time to bring TC home to mom.
