Already on the edge, a grieving Nelson is horrified when a half-empty bottle of whiskey falls out of his bag in front of Frank, at the end of his nursing shift. While Nelson, a recovering alcoholic, insists that he has no idea how the bottle came to be in his bag, Frank doesn't quite swallow it. However, Nelson is outraged when his workmates seem to have trouble believing him. Deanna sets her sights on handsome young doctor Jack. And she quickly makes it clear to Jack that her interest in him is more than just professional. Meanwhile, still reeling from the moment a bottle of whiskey rolled out of his bag in front of a disbelieving Frank, Nelson is far from impressed when Frank confronts him with accusations over the difficult matter. Before long, a heated argument has erupted between the pair in the middle of the emergency department.
