Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Despite orders from Hicks (CCH Pounder), Benton (Eriq La Salle) is determined to stay awake throughout a 48-hour shift, with potentially disastrous results. Elsewhere, a terminally ill patient (Sanford Meisner) is inadvertently given a brief "reprieve" by Carter (Noah Wyle). Ross (George Clooney) is surprised when Carol (Julianna Margulies) drops by -- during Ross' intimate dinner with Diane (Lisa Zane). And Greene (Anthony Edwards) may lose out on a terrific job opportunity if he can't iron out his domestic problems with Jenn (Christine Harnos).
