The trial for Scott is about to begin. Lee and Kevin are there for Scott. Lee told Scott that the jury will probably be women who would not convict him of anything. Rex arrives and tries to get Scott upset. Scott handles himself well. The judge arrives and the trial is set to begin and 12 days is the time frame set for the completion of it.

Lucy and Gail are preparing for Serena's birthday party. Gail tries to make small talk with Lucy then asks her about the scene at the restaurant. Nervous, and not wanting to break her concentration in front of Gail, Lucy told her that she doesn't care for the way that she and Lee are raising Serena.

At the courthouse, Lee is questioning potential jurors for the trail. He dismisses several and the one that Scott doesn't trust, they can't dismiss and they take him.

At the hospital, Chris is preparing for his surgical rotation with Bennett, but Bennett dismisses him and told Joe that he will be assisting him. Chris is shocked and Ellen takes Bennett in the hall to find out what is going on. Everyone else wonders what Chris did to get taken off the rotation. In the hall, Bennett told Ellen that he doesn't care for Chris' work and walks away.

At the courthouse, the jurors are selected and Rex tries to get Scott again by telling him about Serena's birthday and that he knows everything about what will go on there. Kevin manages to calm Scott down and Scott remains calm so that the judge or jurors won't see him lose his temper.

At the house, Serena arrives at home and is surprised about her party and wonders where Scott is and Lucy and Gail try to keep her from worrying about Scott. Scott arrives and she is happy.

Back at the hospital, Bennett picks up a report from Chris and told him to make it better. He told him its sloppy work and that a first year medical student would've done better. Eve questions Chris about what he did, because Bennett is on a mission to get him. Later Chris goes to Bennett and threatens to sue for harassment if he doesn't lay off of him. Bennett told him to keep his voice down and Chris asks why...is it because he slept with Nicole? Bennett told him to stay out of his way.

Today's recap was written by Katie Bischoff

He assured her that he understood, and reminded Lucy that it's no picnic for him either to have to say such hateful things to the woman he loves. Scotty arranges with the social worker for an emergency visit with Serena, who told him how her mother visited her. As the interns begin sweating out their impending six-month evaluation, Joe takes Karen's mind off the problem by inviting her out on a date. An irritated Ellen watches Matt and Grace grow closer.

Later, Scotty is shocked when Serena describes the yellow baby sweater Dominique knitted for her. Mike persuades Ellen to join him and Matt for a piece of Grace's famous lasagna. Joe brought Karen to a special spot in the woods to select a tree for their first Christmas together. Unfortunately, a forest ranger arrives, and informs Joe and Karen that they are on federal land.
