SPLIT DECISIONS: With Clemente (John Leguizamo) missing in action, Dr. Dubenko volunteers to take the dayshift but ends up feeling overwhelmed.

Ray (Shane West) is put in a very awkward situation when his young former girlfriend comes into the ER with serious abuse-related injuries.

With a baby in their future, Kovac (Goran Visnijic) and Abby (Maura Tierney) venture out for some baby shopping.

Meanwhile, Neela (Parminder Nagra) receives word that she has been selected for the surgery elective that she had been hoping for.

Mehki Phifer and Sharif Atkins also star.


Ray helps an old friend escape from her abusive father. Dubenko volunteers in the ER but can't seem to handle a slow day. Abby and Kovac go baby shopping, while Neela gets unexpected and upsetting news from Gallant.



  • The condition Morris mentions he has is supernumerary thelium, which is a real condition. It is commonly called Supernumerary Nipple.


Dr. Luka Kovac: You want to go shopping?

Dr. Abby Lockhart: I want to go looking

Dr. Luka Kovac: Baby monitors.

Dr. Abby Lockhart: Monitors, cribs, car seats. Maybe a little mobile of famous Croatian diplomats.

(Luka looks at her confused)

Dr. Abby Lockhart: It's a joke.
