The Greater Good


Episode Info

Pratt and Kovac clash over a miscarriage-prone young woman, Denny (ALLISON SMITH), who arrives to deliver a premature baby. Pratt wants to make heroic efforts to save the unborn child, while Kovac is adamantly against spending vast amounts of money to keep the forever sickly baby alive. A distracted Kovac also runs afoul of a psychiatrist who overmedicates an abused foster child who wants to go back to his drug-addled mother. Meanwhile, Lewis enjoys the company of sarcastic patient Ben Hollander (recurring guest star, Emmy Award winner BOB NEWHART - "Newhart"), who once threatened suicide over his impending blindness. A chatty, upbeat pharmaceutical representative, Terra (SARAH SHAHI), peddles her wares. A man turns violent over an exorbitant hospital bill. And Dr. Nick "Coop" Cooper, a second-year resident, makes romantic advances towards Chen.
