Storyline

After watching him play rugby, Amanda sees intern Troy Sommers crash to his death with his motorbike from a cliff after a few head-nods- it was hypoglycemic shock from a dozens Triptezine tablets in his healthy sports drink. Norman and hospital staff in general worry because Community General has a computer virus. A painful rugby undercover teaches Jesse that Troy had eager rivals among interns, not just in rugby and for a girl but for a really hard to get heart surgery resident-ship at St. Victor's hospital, including ball-bully Billy Marco: its famous chief Dr. Nathan Harding's academically less gifted son Kyle, Troy's roommate, whom Jesse catches at a potentially fatal medical error; his dad won't even listen to Mark about it. A note 'ABADCAD' in Kyle and Troy's room is solved by Mark to unmask a surprising motive with a dangerous complication... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Mark, in trying to figure out the meaning of the cryptic "ABADCAD" tries playing it as musical notes on a keyboard. The title of the 1983 hit song "Abacab" by Genesis gets its title from the first six chords of its melody. See more »

Goofs

When Jesse stops Kyle from taking blood from the patient they go out into the hallway, have an argument, and then they go their separate ways. This means they left the patient with a tourniquet on her arm. Jessie also mentions taking blood from an artery, not a vein, something a doctor wouldn't confuse. See more »
