This episode picks up right where the last one left off: Danny has just told Mindy that he knows about the baby, and he proposes on the spot. He pitches the idea of a shotgun wedding at City Hall, which Mindy rejects, of course. Instead, she heads back to San Francisco in order to start setting up the fertility clinic. Danny decides that he’ll move there with her, but he can’t bring himself to tell Jeremy that yet another doctor from their practice is leaving.

More problems are on the rise for our favorite couple: It turns out that Mindy’s little brother, Rishi, has destroyed her credit by not paying rent on the apartment that she cosigned for. He’s not making money as a rapper, so Mindy offers him a position as a medical technician at the new clinic. She takes the offer back though when she discovers that her brother is dealing marijuana, but he promises that he’ll quit in order to join her at the clinic.

Back in New York, Morgan overhears Danny making plans to change his will, and jumps to the conclusion that Danny is dying. He tells the rest of the staff, so when Danny tries to tell Jeremy that he’s leaving, Jeremy thinks he’s telling him that he’s leaving the Earth. The team throws Danny a memorial service of sorts, where he finally realizes the confusion, and explains the truth – including the pregnancy.

Guest star John Cho is Greg (aka “Big Murder”), the dealer who offers Rishi a raise when he tries to quit, calling him one of his best salesmen. Mindy realizes that her brother was enjoying the validation that came with succeeding in a job, but still convinces him to leave the drug business. Rob isn’t okay with this, though, so Mindy decides that she wants to go back to New York and start her own clinic.

“In terms of entitlement and personality, you’re the whitest man I know.” – Rishi, to Mindy
