Hugh is concerned about Jim's health but as per usual, Jim doesn't want to talk about it. Penny reapportions the MRI machine funds — which is frustrating and untimely given Hugh's next patient has a head trauma. This frustration quickly turns to excitement, as Trevor, a colleague and co-pioneer in artificial heart research, turns up to show Hugh their new prototype. They trial the product on a pig they steal on a hunting trip and with the surprise help of Penny, they test its capability.

Meryl, meanwhile, is caught up in a heated political battle to be mayor, and at risk of scandal, she sets free the stolen pig, containing the $500K artificial heart. While Ajax and Trevor attempt to track down the prized pig, Hugh assists at a B&S Ball. Fueled by alcohol and impulse, Hugh makes moves on Charlie and goads Meryl's political opponent into a violent resolution. A revelation with his head trauma patient, causes Hugh to recalibrate his approach to life and medicine.
