Eve breaks into Chris' apartment and sees Julie's file there. She is about to look inside the file when Chris comes home.

Julie tries to reserve a table at the Recovery Room for the interns' party, but the owner told her it's not the Pump Room. Mike overhears the conversation and continues to talk to the owner about buying the bar. Meanwhile, Matt is on the phone trying to find a wheelchair-accessible apartment. Mike overhears this conversation, too, and offers to help.

Back at the hospital, Joe and Karen discuss their day; Joe's eyes are drawn to Karen's wedding ring.

Lucy told Kevin that she is worried that Serena isn't as okay as she seems to be. Scott is also worried; Serena has never been afraid of hospitals before and she also hadn't taken a nap in years, but she went right to sleep after she freaked out about going to the hospital. Kevin told Scott that some people react to stress by sleeping. Scott informs Lucy and Kevin that no matter what, he's not letting Serena out of his sight ever again. As Kevin tries to reason with him, Mac arrives and informs the group that although he's no longer with the PCPD, he has been hired as a special consulting PI to Serena's case. Scott doesn't want Mac to talk to Serena or get her checked out by a doctor because she was fine until they brought up the hospital. Mac reminds Scott that the sooner they can get information about the kidnappers, the sooner they can find out who they are. Lucy suggests to Scott and Mac that they let Karen, Serena's sister, examine Serena for any abuse.

Karen told Joe that she isn't going to the Recovery Room after work; she wants to go home and try to reach Jagger. Dr. B. arrives and informs Joe that there is someone in ER who needs his attention. Scott calls the hospital and asks Karen to come and examine Serena. Joe told Karen to go ahead, he'd cover for her; her family is more important than the hospital.

In Chris' apartment, Eve confronts Chris about Julie's file. Chris wants to know why she cares. Eve fires back that she just wants to know what it is exactly that Chris wants from Julie. She told him that Julie and Frank are getting to be a hot item. Chris hints that he may have a file on her too, and calls her Evelyn.

Julie sees Matt at the Recovery Room and invites him and Mike to the festivities that evening. Mike informs them that he is the proud new owner of the bar. He also told Matt that he needs someone to watch the bar at night, and there is an apartment in the back that can be renovated to be wheelchair-accessible. Matt is suspicious.

Mac wants to know why the kidnappers would accept 5 million dollars in ransom, since they would be difficult to fence. Serena asks if the nice "lady" is going to jail. Mac asks what the lady looked like and Serena informed him that the lady looked different every time, but she was nice and read her books and watched movies with her. Karen arrives and Scott introduces her as her sister, who's a real doctor. Serena eyes Karen's little black bag and is intrigued. Karen asks Serena if she will help her learn to be better doctor. Serena agrees and they leave the room.

Eve threatens to tell the police about Chris (after having broken into his apartment!) having Julie's file.

Karen told Scott that Serena is okay; she was not physically abused.

Mike told Matt that the place needs work to bring it up to code anyway, so making it accessible wouldn't entail much more work. Matt told Mike he doesn't want any offers out of pity. Mike told Matt not to tell him how to feel. Matt takes the apartment.

Chris comes to relieve Joe at the hospital. A man in cardiac arrest arrives and Chris tries to get the man's heart started while Dr. B. stands and watches.
