After Dan falls into a coma, his friends maintain a bedside vigil and reminisce about the good times they've had.


Dan awakens from his coma, and Harry confronts him about his selfish and self-destructive behavior.

Plot SummaryEdit

In the conclusion of a two-part story, Harry (Harry Anderson) blames himself when Dan (John Larroquette) lapses into a coma, even though the real cause was Dan's strenuous seduction of Sheila (Leslie Bevis) while he was still confined to a hospital bed. Ultimately awakening to find that his friends are holding a bedside vigil around him, Dan figures that he's off the hook for his irresponsible behavior. But he's figured wrong--dead wrong! Frequent Night Court guest star Jack Riley shows up in the role of Dr. Flick.
