Guppy arrives at work exhausted, but Stitch is only too happy to let him take every patient going. Guppy treats elderly patient George for a suspected panic attack and soon gives him the all-clear whilst Kelsey tries to matchmake George with his concerned neighbour.
Guppy then attends a shout where groom-to-be, Dave, has fallen down a manhole and is trapped down a sewer. When Guppy realises that Dave must be freed before he drowns, he’s forced to take drastic action and decides to amputate his leg.
Later, after George is rushed back in with complications and is diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism, Guppy goes to see Stitch convinced he’s getting the sack. But Stitch reassures Guppy he’s a good doctor – he just needs to pull himself together. Guppy asks Stitch how he copes with the job; Stitch tells him he uses cocaine to get by. Guppy is tempted but Stitch angrily tells Guppy he shouldn’t go near it.
