SummaryEdit

Virginia City's new doctor, Mark Sloan, is dealt a double-blow when his wife leaves him, blaming him for their baby being stillborn. In the heat of the moment, Sloan kidnaps the baby of another woman.

PlotEdit

Traumatized by the death of her baby, Ruth Sloan walks out on her husband, an overworked doctor. These two events are more than Dr. Sloan can handle; he snaps and takes the newborn of one of his patients, thinking it his his own child.

TriviaEdit

  • German episode title: "Weine nicht, mein Sohn", meaning "Don't Cry, My Son".
  • Richard Mulligan as Mark, the bright, young doctor in this episode. He made his first appearance in twelve's, "Kingdom Of Fear", as Farley.
  • The effect music in this episode was composed and recorded by David Rose in different guises for a variety of mood and emotion in this episode. It's all derived from the main title music to avoid sounding repetitive.
  • While this episode was being made, Lorne Greene fell ill and was rushed to the hospital. He was complaining of chest and abdominal pains. It turned out, he had a case of the "Chinese Restaurant Syndrome", just bad food, and not anything such as a heart attack!
  • Michael is wearing a blue night robe, in a late evening scene conversing with Lorne Greene inside the house.
