Flashpoint Mar 12, 2001 In the second part to a crossover with The Practice Ellenor is diagnosed with a disease that complicates pregnancy. She appoints Jimmy as (from The Practice) her baby's guardian and makes Dr. Gideon promise that he will put the baby's life ahead of her own. Legally, this is unethical, and poses problems in the surgery to also remove her rupturing appendix. Her health declines (several seizures), and it doesn't seem that she or the baby will survive. Worse still, due to Ellenor's condition, she will die if they deliver the baby. Pulling at straws, Dr. Gideon prescribes heparin (an act of hope rather than medical evidence). After a long night, Ellenor recovers, and Gideon attibutes it to ""dumb luck"", but is glad never the less. Throughout the episode we learn that Ellenor and Gideon's wife were best friends, and he offers advice on how to be a single ""mom.""Cherry gets a young boy patient, an absolute terror, whose multitasking, inattentive, rich, but likable mother brings him in to have

It's a battle every step of the way.Gideon asks Boise to perform his routine physical for insurance purposes. He eats his first of dozens of antacids eaten through the show. The questions on the lifestyle portion of the exam seem to accuse Gideon of being burnout, impatient and at risk for stress related illness. He dodges the question on alcohol consumption as ""the bear."" Frustrated with Boise's thoroughness and candidness, Gideon ends the session early with this statement ""Sometimes you eat the bear; sometimes the bear eats you.""Gideon is treating a patient with Parkinson's disease.
