Mark tries rollerskating, even to work when his car won't start again. Then he tries a traditional Indian purification rite on an Ogala Sioux patient Clarke to relieve his sinusitis, in front of his med class. After a root canal, Mark gets a call and visit at home from TV investment guru Robin Westlin, who believes he's been poisoned and dies right there; but when the paramedics arrive both his car and corpse have disappeared. Steve thinks it's a laughing gas induced hallucination, but Mark finds Robin's dropped pocket diary. Westlin's chief deputy Tim Rutland, his secretary as well as his wife Meg, claim Robin is alive, but he's nowhere to be found. So the Sloans, Jack as 'psychiatric outpatient Mark's shrink' and 'reporter' Amanda snoop on at the Westlin Institute.
