Catch a Fallen Star

A former child star, Chet ""Poofie"" McGuire (Stephen Furst), comes to the hospital to research his new role for the sitcom ""Poofie McGuire, Nurse for Hire."" Greg's star-struck, but everyone else is annoyed – particularly Annie, who has to take Chet on rounds with her. But Chet's attitude changes when he witnesses the staff revive a dying man. Meanwhile, Julie goes on a ""holy quest"" to track down the brother of that dying man and Dr. Riskin fends off an obnoxious mother who's giving her son high blood-pressure.
