A con man posing as a homeless person pulls on everyone's heart strings. Becker ignores his first instinct and comes to the aid of the man. Bob, Jake and Reggie chip in by offering money, a hot meal and advice; however, the man is not really homeless and the gang is shocked when his profession is revealed. Meanwhile, Margaret, in desperate need of extra cash, takes on a second job, then regrets it.
Dr. John Becker is a dedicated and talented physician with a gruff exterior. Unfortunately, his interior isn't all that warm and fuzzy either. While he offends those around who try to get close to him, he is extremely dedicated to his medical practice in the Bronx where he always goes the extra mile to help those in need.
