After his own successful surgery, Patrick learns from Epiphany that Dr. Niles lost her patient and has left for the day. Steve walks up to read the surgical report. They butt heads over it and a man walks in looking for the doctor who operated on his sister. He wants to know how they screwed up and let his sister die. Patrick tries to ease the situation, but the man gets more upset. Steve intervenes, much to Patrick's irritation, and leads the man away to talk. After Steve returns, Patrick lashes out at Steve for intervening and wonders if he protected Lisa. Steve knows there wasn't anything Lisa could have done, but they have a responsibility to the patient's family. Patrick says, "Let me do my job and I'll let you do yours."
