Sean suffers uncontrollable spasms in his hands. After he nicks a patient's major neck artery during a routine cyst lancing, Sean stops performing surgeries. He becomes even more depressed and anxious when Christian, whose nose has been broken by a woman during sex, asks another plastic surgeon to reset it. Christian is deeply insulted when the attractive female surgeon not only rebuffs his sexual advances but also advises him to get some cosmetic work done on the rest of his aging body. Sean's temper finally gets the better of him when someone blocks his car into a parking space. But Julia, with the advice of her abrasive therapist mother, Erica Noughton, helps Sean realize that she will love him even if he cannot be a surgeon anymore. And after botching an attempt to operate on himself in a mirror, Christian bolsters Sean's confidence by confessing that he only trusts Sean to do the job correctly.
