Megan Murphy met new resident and pediatrician Patrick Hunter when his lop eared rabbit roommate Tibbles tried to turn her skirt into lunch. She met him again when she went to his home, and returned said rabbit after finding him unaccompanied on the street. While visiting with Megan, one of Patrick's patients Tilly Coogin came and left her baby with them stating she would be back as soon as she could to get him. Patrick was going to call social services to intervene because with his patient load, didn't have time to care for little Tim. Megan told him they couldn't do that to little Timmy, so she would baby-sit him during the day, and then bring him to Patrick for the night shift. It wasn't until after she got his agreement that she realized that was his plan all along. Patrick had ulterior motives, as he had plans of getting to know Megan's body much better! As they settle into a routine of sorts with Tim, both of them start feeling like they have a little family. When both sets of parents invade for Thanksgiving, Megan and Patrick really start to get attached and feel like they belong together. They even start planning a wedding. Then Tilly shows up, and both of them are devastated that they have to give Tim up. They start to wonder - is what they had real? Can their fragile relationship survive the loss of Tim?
Megan and Patrick were funny together, and the rest of their families complemented the looney bin nicely.
