Penny's faced with a tough decision when the father of one of her regular patients, a 16-year-old boy with Downs Syndrome, is in a car accident. When the father is put in an induced coma, Penny decides to take the boy in until he recovers. Meanwhile, things are getting serious between Dr. Toke and Penny, as he arranges one outlandish date after another. But now Penny's got both Floyd and Max in tow, putting a dampener on their romantic nights out.

Back at the hospital, Hugh isn't taking their relationship well, and gives Penny an ultimatum — get rid of Toke and they could be together. But she's only got 24 hours to make her decision. It's made even more complicated when Toke decides to propose to Penny. But Penny's realistic — can he ever really see himself living in Whyhope? Eventually, Toke realizes that she's too ingrained in the town for their relationship to work, and he leaves to work on a Mercy ship.

Charlie gets into strife at her school when she takes her class for an impromptu excursion, and winds up getting the kids caught in a storm. It's the final straw in a long line of alternate teaching methods, and the principal fires her. Things get worse when she goes to his house to beg for her job back, and walks in on him dressed as a baby. Charlie's convinced she's out of a job, but Meryl intervenes, and forces the principal to hold a panel to deliberate. When they vote for Charlie to keep her job, the principal is furious and quits on the spot, allowing Meryl to push Charlie's name through as Acting Principal.
