Surrender is the 12th episode of the 7th season of "E.R."

TOM BOSLEY AND TOM POSTON GUEST-STAR: Dr. Weaver (Laura Innes) regrets her decision to report a work-related injury in an illegal sweatshop when the corrupt owners panic and try to eliminate the evidence by torching the premises with the illegal alien workers trapped inside, while Dr. Greene (Anthony Edwards) returns to work with a curious change in his attitude and personality.
Elsewhere, Dr. Benton (Eriq La Salle) is sandbagged by the wily Dr. Romano (Paul McCrane) who lures him into a new position without confiding the political implications of the new job.
After confessing his temptation to Weaver, Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle) is restricted from issuing controlled narcotics.
Abby (Maura Tierney) treats two combative elderly men (guest stars Tom Poston, "Newhart" and Tom Bosley, "Happy Days") who are injured while fighting each other.
