Mike's Dream: A Christmas Tale
Crossing the Line is the eleventh episode of Season 2 of Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman and the twenty-eighth episode of the series.
Miners go on strike due to dangerous conditions in the mine. Despite Dr. Mike's objections, Matthew decides to cross the picket line and work in the mine. What Matthew didn't expect was to be trapped after a cave-in, leaving the men in town, along with Dr. Mike and Sully, with the task of rescuing him and his fellow miners in the mine.
Meanwhile, Loren won't give the miners on strike any credit. As a result, the miners on strike, along with others in town who sympathize with them, boycott Loren's store.
- multiple miners for dysentery and other non cave-in related conditions
- multiple miners hurt when the mine caved-in, including Matthew
