Neela has a 'guest' staying at the apartment. Her cousin, Jaspreet (Rebecca Jane Hazlewood) is browsing a guide book to find the best options available for 'painting the town red'. Jas is a party animal but Neela has to go to work and appears to be suffering a hang-over from the previous night out with her relative. Dr Rasgotra is assured that partying will be on the agenda while she is around and Neela asks how long she anticipates staying.
The flighty youngster has travelled from London to the US without her parents knowledge. She does not want any part of the marriage to a doctor they have arranged for her, but seem keen to meet Neela's medical colleagues at the earliest opportunity.
Cut forward to the Surgical team walking through the corridor at County General. Jas has invited herself along and takes pictures of the group. Chief Surgeon Crenshaw poses enthusiastically before the flirtatious photographer takes him by the arm. She jabbers about her cousin's rebel attitude in flying the constraints of the family nest and making her own way in the States. "Neela is the families Mick Jagger". Crenshaw responds that he views Dr Rasgotra more as a backing singer - a Pip to his Gladys Knight. Neela just looks embarrassed.
Harold Zelinski collides into his surgical colleagues and is introduced to Jas.
He's immediately impressed (she's a woman after all) as the new arrival takes him by the hand. The casual suggestion that he might show her the 'sights of the city' appears to triggers an asthma attack in the young prodigy and Neela steps forward to assist her comical charge.
In a treatment room Harold recovers with an inhaler and Neela asks about his asthma. He suggests that the attack was down to psychosexual stress and is more concerned about whether Jas is single. She insists that her cousin is a sex crazed maniac and definitely not the girl for him. His expression suggests that the description has not dampened his enthusiasm. Harold's smile broadens as Crenshaw arrives and states that he will not be required for consults and that he might instead give Jas a tour of the hospital.
Beth Ackerman, a soldier on leave from duty in Iraq has been admitted after injuring an ankle in a fall. She is in a trauma room accompanied by her boyfriend Jack, who is a Marine. Jack is initially ecstatic when tests reveal Beth to be pregnant, but his mood quickly sours when it is confirmed she is about 8 weeks into term and only returned from duty a fortnight before.
Neela works to re-align Beth's foot as the atmosphere becomes tense and appears to have achieved a successful result. Dr Grossman, Head of Orthopaedics arrives and is unhappy that the trauma team have broken protocol and carried out the specialist procedure without consultation. Crenshaw advises him that Neela's prompt action has probably saved the woman's foot.
Grossman seems impressed and comments "you must have some set of hands, girl" and leaves the room as Neela looks back at him.
Jack angrily challenges Beth about her pregnancy before she tearfully admits that her Sergeant raped her, but the Marine is unwilling to believe her.
A while later and the lecherous Dr Morris has taken over as tour guide for Jas and Harold is not best pleased. Neela finds him out in the ambulance Bay venting his frustration in an overly aggressive game of 'Four Square' with some kids from the waiting room. She sends the youths back inside but Harold wants to play on and bounces the ball forcefully at his mentor. Neela asks why he is so agitated and he responds that it is the second time in two months that 'his girl' has been stolen!
Morris walks by arm in arm with Jaspreet and tells Neela that they are going for a drink after shifts and invites her along. Harold seizes his opportunity and accepts the offer on her behalf and suggests gleefully that it will be a double date.
Neela throws the basketball at Harold's back in a 'mock angry' manner and laughs as she catches it on the rebound before they return inside.
Later, at Ike Ryans, the 'double date' is on and Morris is eager to impress Jas with his knowledge of Indian Cinema. Neela is suspicious and asks Archie how long he's been following Bollywood movies. Harold chimes in "about twenty minutes ago when he went on the internet". Morris looks daggers at the gawky teenager but Jas doesn't watch Bollywood movies and has never been to India. Harold does not waste the opportunity to call Morris a 'butt head" for making ignorant assumptions.
Dr Rasgotra takes her leave of the wannabe Lotharios and talks with Ortho Chief Grossman, who is at the bar. He jokes with Neela about her heroic 'foot work' and asks how she would feel about a rotation with his team. She is surprised when he confirms that he has already cleared it with Dubenko and next week she will be spending time with "the cool kids". He smiles and says "be ready - I'm pretty tough!"...
