Next Episode of Becker is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Becker centers on the life of Dr. John Becker, a cantankerous, yet dedicated and talented physician, who, in spite of his constant rants, has a decent heart underneath the sarcasm. Becker will continue to unleash his views at the local diner, even in Reggie's continuing absense. Jake, the blind proprietor of the local newsstand continues to turn a deaf ear to John. Bob, Becker's brash, obnoxious apartment super, persists in annoying virtually everyone. At the office, Becker's head nurse Margaret continues to make order out of chaos, keeping John and his space-cadet nurses-aid Linda in line. New to the neighborhood is Chris Konnors, Becker's new neighbor, with whom he must contend on a daily basis. Although her positive attitude is a major annoyance to Becker, he slowly begins to have feelings for her. John Becker is a cynical Harvard Medical School graduate who is somewhat of a loner and has trouble letting people get close to him. He looks at the world around him and feels society has gone mad - full of inconsistencies and just plain backward thinking. Although he is a diagnostician by trade, Becker feels he can dispense diagnoses even when no one asks. He has no qualms about saying what comes to mind, never sugarcoats his opinions and often seems to offend somebody nearby. However, his friends and colleagues recognize the heart beneath the hate and so accept his gruff demeanor for what it is.
John tries to figure out whether he'd rather be with Reggie or Chris (Nancy Travis), having been kissed by both women. A passionate evening with Reggie doesn't make things any clearer for the commitment-impaired doc.
John tries desperately to persuade Chris that he chose to be with her before he learned that Reggie was leaving town, but Chris doesn't believe him. Also, Jake and Bob decide to follow in Reggie's footsteps and get out of town, and Margaret and Linda try to find out the identity of a man who claims he is a former patient.
Neighbors John and Chris do whatever they can to annoy each other, from smoking cigars to using a sander at 4 A.M. to strip a floor; Linda pretends she is from L.A. to impress a new guy (Shawn Christian) she is dating; Jake worries that Amanda is decorating his apartment in an overly feminine fashion.
A grumpy patient (Hal Holbrook) who claims he's dying insists that John visit him in the hospital every night. Also, Bob accidentally sees Chris naked in her apartment, but what really upsets her is that he doesn't brag to the guys about what a beautiful body she has.
John becomes jealous when Chris turns down his offer to watch a movie with him and instead goes out with another man. Later, in an awkward attempt to show Chris his true feelings, John shows up at her job and inadvertently gets her into trouble.
John gets jealous and lies to a friend who expresses interest in Chris by telling him that she is gay. Unfortunately, the man acts on John's information and sets Chris up with a lesbian acquaintance. Also, Bob tries to deepen his friendship with Jake and buys a pair of walkie-talkies so that the two of them can stay in constant contact with each other.
John treats a man (French Stewart) who displays three distinctive personalities, all of whom drive John crazy. At the diner, Chris and Jake annoy each other with their irksome habits, and Bob becomes a big brother to a 10-year-old boy (Loren Berman).
John enjoys a few laughs at Chris's expense after she does favors for several people only to discover they were all done in vain.
Jake begins to believe his blindness makes him less of a person after he allows a thief to walk right past him with cash stolen from the diner. Chris and John's attempts to cheer him have the reverse effect, so John takes Jake to a hockey game to take his mind off of the matter. But Jake thinks he hears the robber's voice at the game and wants John to make a citizen's arrest. At John's office, Margaret is hit on by a smooth-talking salesman. Det. Borkow: Troy Evans. Cliff: James Pickens Jr.
Chris gets jealous when she hears from John that he is dating an editor at a leading magazine and is going to spend Christmas with her in Vermont. Also: Bob fears that a street-corner Santa is out to get him, and Margaret tries to cheer up Linda by having her go caroling with a church group.
Margaret looks back 10 years to her first meeting with John. She recalls persuading him to hire her and keep his practice open instead of closing shop and returning to Boston. At the diner, Bob hides from an angry tenant who wants him to fix a clogged drain.
Jake and Bob misinterpret one of Chris's phone conversations and assume that she and John are sleeping together. At the office, John tries to persuade a promiscuous teen to use condoms.
John's former college roommate (Kelsey Grammer) at Harvard visits to seek forgiveness for past offenses, but John refuses to pardon his old friend. Meanwhile, at the diner, Bob becomes convinced that he is going to die soon; and at the office Linda accuses Margaret of having an affair. Cliff: James Pickens Jr.
John gets upset when a patient refuses to take any more medication because he believes God is healing him through prayer. At the diner, Bob brags that he is part Native American and tries to cash in on his newfound heritage, and Linda attempts to keep up the charade in her "long-distance" relationship with a fellow New Yorker.
John is stalked by an elderly but frisky neighbor (Betty Garrett) who is determined to make him her man. Also: Linda decides to tell her boyfriend (Shawn Christian), who thinks she lives in L.A., the truth about where she resides.
Fed up with his practice, John applies for a research position in Baltimore---without telling his friends. His suspicious behavior then leads them to believe he's either sick or on drugs.
John feels like climbing the walls after Chris bans smoking from the diner and Margaret won't let him light up in the office. Elsewhere, Bob convinces Jake that Amanda is cheating on him after Jake unwittingly walks into the diner wearing lime green pants that are too small for him; and Linda persuades John to treat a friend's dog.
Jake is devastated when his girlfriend Amanda moves out of their apartment to marry another man. But he doesn't get much sympathy from John, who is trying to quit smoking.
John gets worried after he reluctantly consents to having his palm read by a self-proclaimed psychic (Yeardley Smith) and she suddenly turns pale and runs away. He gets so freaked out that he goes to another seer to get a second opinion.
John gets frustrated when a childless couple who come to him for advice on getting pregnant misconstrue everything he says. Elsewhere, Chris flirts with a fire marshal to get out of a ticket, but Bob's attempt to charm a police officer who is about to write him up for jaywalking backfires.
John gets jealous when Chris's all-too-friendly ex-husband (Jon Cryer) unexpectedly shows up and stays at her apartment. The good doc tries everything he can to keep the divorced duo apart because he fears they will get back together if he doesn't intervene.
The fifth season comes to a close with John realizing that he still has feelings for Chris after a series of romantic dreams about her. But he fears she doesn't feel the same way about him.
