Storyline

Norman insists Mark should ask rich plastic surgeon colleague Dr. Elliott Valin, when he's named "Doctor of the Year" at a medical convention, to bring some 'high profile clientele' to Community General, a suggestion Valin rudely dismisses. When Valin dies from an overdose of laughing gas, Mark investigates. Valin's son Roger Valin found out his father was also fooling around with his girlfriend and needed money to prevent his holistic medicine practice from going belly up. Yet the victim's much younger widow Bonnie, who has a hunky lover is accused, convinces Mark to find proof of her innocence which gets her declared innocent, most embarrassing for Steve, before Mark realizes she set them up with her hunky boyfriend Dave McDonnell perjured testimony...

Goofs

When Amanda storms out of the empty office she is shown putting on her coat. When she arrives at her parked car she is shown carrying her coat on her arm. In addition, the parking ticket was left loosely on her windshield; any cop would have been sure to have left it under the wiper blade to keep it from blowing away. See more »
