Season 1 Episode 1
After the death of his wife, Dr. Andrew "Andy" Brown (series star Treat Williams) trades his career as a world-renowned neurosurgeon for an opportunity to be a better parent and move his two children, 9-year-old Delia (series star Vivien Cardone) and 15-year-old Ephram (series star Gregory Smith) to Everwood, Colorado. The sudden shift is hardest on Ephram, who resents all the years his father lavished on his career at the expense of his family. When Andy opens a free medical clinic for the citizens of Everwood, people think that he is crazy, but a local woman, Edna (series star Debra Mooney), quickly applies for a job as his nurse and office manager. Edna's son, Dr. Harold Abbott, the only other doctor in town, is disturbed by the competition and forbids his children, 15-year-old Amy (series star Emily VanCamp) and 17-year-old Bright from associating with the Brown family. Traditions transform overnight for the residents of Everwood, as recounted by the school bus driver, Mr. Irv.
