Adam asks Erica not to go and says that she is all he has left.

JR tells Barry that there is no way to fix this because a child could die and the doctor who invented the heart valve committed suicide. Barry says that it isnít the Chandler way, but JR says that he canít stomach the Chandler way right now and that he would settle for saving one life.
