"Get-togethers" are only fun when, you know, people actually get "together."
Although Addison has invited the entire Oceanside crew to her Malibu home for food and drinks, none of her co-workers have RSVP'ed to her invitation.
Regardless, she accompanies Sam to his live TV talk show appearance where he does his self-help shtick for millions—or at least hundreds—to see.
At work, Addison chastises everybody for being impolite, but they're too busy with patients to give a hoot. Impolite? We'll say it: They're downright rude!
[break]Pete treats an elderly engaged man, Stan, for narcolepsy; Dell treats a young boy, Michael, for mono; and Naomi treats a woman, Cami, for...? Well, that's what Violet wants to know since Cami is the current wife of her ex-boyfriend, Alan, whom she's still hopelessly hung up on.
But the weirdest patient of the day is a Jane Doe, an extremely skinny pregnant girl who escaped from a hospital after seeing Sam on TV. She won’t give her real name and claims the hospital is trying to kill her. Hmm, wonder which hospital that could be?
When tests show that Michael does not have mono, the 10-year-old boy divulges his real illness. He's heartsick over someone who doesn't love him back. Cooper convinces the kid to "go for it" and profess his love anyway. Plus, if Michael does that, then Cooper promises he'll tell the girl of his dreams how he really feels.
[break]Addison gives Jane Doe a check-up. She's seriously underweight, but her baby is doing fine in the womb. But then Charlotte arrives from St. Ambrose claiming that "Jane" is one of hers—surprise, surprise. Her real name is Rebecca Hobart and she's actually a 5150 case, i.e. she escaped from Ambrose's psych ward. In other words, she's nuts.
Rebecca suffers from Munchausen syndrome, where she fakes being ill to get attention. She's not physically sick, she's just starving herself to get attention. And no matter how much Addison insists the girl is not faking it, Charlotte demands she return to St. Ambrose.
Then, Michael returns from opening up his heart to the love of his young life, just as Cooper suggested. Except, now Michael has a bloody nose and a black eye. He wasn't in love with a girl at all. Michael is in love with his best friend, Brian, who didn't take the news too well. Plus, Cooper cops out of opening his heart to the love of his life: Violet.
As Charlotte prepares to take Rebecca away, Sam is so impressed with Addison's concern for her that he’s able to get one more hour to find out if she actually does have a physical ailment. But, at this point, even Addison isn’t sure the girl isn’t crazy.
All the doctors at Oceanside put their heads together. Is Rebecca crazy or sick? Sam's the one who has the brainstorm. If Rebecca isn't lying then she could have an autoimmune deficiency so that her intestines are not absorbing nutrients.
But, it's too late. Charlotte has snuck Rebecca back to St. Ambrose. Racing over there, Sam and Addison convince Charlotte to order a GI Camera study to prove their theory, which turns out to be correct. Rebecca has Crohn's Disease, which is easily treatable.
Crisis averted, Sam and Addison return to Oceanside to see their co-workers lounging around sipping wine. Addison gives them all the what-for for blowing off her party to sit by themselves in the office. But, they claim they've all just been waiting for Addison to return before heading to her house. Oh, so they aren't rude after all?
Everyone retires to Addison's for some food, booze and casual conversation.
