Dr. Fitch "Coop" Cooper typifies the smug, Ivy League doctors who have trolled the hospital halls for decades on their way to the golf course, leaving the nurses to deal with the repercussions of their drive-by diagnoses. Coop was taken down a peg when passed over for head of the ER -- and now, his pursuit of a twisted new romance may threaten his chance to reestablish himself as a serious physician.
