Cara Fitzgerald


Episode Info

While driving his friend Henry (recurring guest star ANDREW LEEDS) home, Matt looks away from the road and strikes a shy girl, Cara Fitzgerald, throwing her out of sight into a ditch. Disoriented and worried because there is marijuana in the car, the boys don't realize that they've hit a pedestrian and leave the deserted area. But later, Matt learns that Cara is hospitalized in a coma. Guilt-stricken, he visits her and meets her mother, a strict Christian Scientist who refuses to allow doctors to do any reconstructive surgery on Cara's face, which is destroyed. Without admitting to anyone that he is responsible, Matt persuades Sean to convince Cara's mother to allow him to fix Cara's features--and prevent blindness--for no charge, in order to save her from a lifetime of social rejection. Henry, an Orthodox Jew, tearfully almost confesses to Julia, but Matt stops him.
