Under the influence of marijuana, Matt and a friend of his accidentally hit a passing student while arguing over what radio station to listen to in the car. When they can't find a body, they convince themselves that they had probably hit a very large bird and leave the scene of an accident. The next morning, however, Matt finds out through a newspaper article that they had hit a schoolmate of theirs named Cara Fitzgerald(Alyson Reed), who is now in critical condition. Once Sean realizes Cara's family's religion prevents them from agreeing to necessary surgical procedures, he threatens to sue for medical custody and reconstructs Cara's face pro bono. Elsewhere, Christian is horrified to realize that a man who had requested to have a birthmark removed from his genitals is actually a child molester who was only concerned that the offending mark would give his victims enough proof to identify him to the authorities, and Grace realizes that Megan and Sean are having an affair.
