Overview[edit]

Mr. Brown faints right before he and Cora are to fly to Memphis for a televised revival and she rushes him to the emergency room, where a bunch of patients' and doctors' secrets come to light. Brenda, a new admissions clerk at the hospital, is struggling to take care of her son Calvin as a single parent; then Calvin gets shot while trying to hustle money on the streets. Kerry, the head nurse, discovers that the doctor she thought she was going to marry already has a wife and baby-on-the-way...and expects to keep seeing Kerry on the side. Mr. and Mrs. Lovett discover that one gave the other an STD. Trudy, a psychotic nurse, has a crush on Dr. Harris--who figures out that Mr. Brown was faking his illness the whole time!
