Episode Quotes

Dr. Douglas "Doogie" Howser: There's so much about life that I don't understand. Maybe I do retreat into medicine where I can feel superior.
Vinnie Delpino: Look... you are just a regular guy, you know. You drive a car, you go out on dates, you're using an autopsy report as a placemat.
Dr. Douglas "Doogie" Howser: When I was a child, all my days were filled with endless wonder. When I was a child, I would lie on the dew-covered grass and search the vast evening sky for falling stars. When I was a child, my friends and I would venture deep into the woods and tell tales of the Grim Reaper... Who with sickle in hand... Icily searched for his next victim. We weren't afraid, he came only for the old, not us. When I was a child, I would look to my mother's arms for warmth and my father's eyes for approval. When I was a child, I wondered... When will I be grown? Now I'm an adult and I wonder... Can I ever be a child again?
Dr. Douglas "Doogie" Howser: [Journal Entry] March 21, 1993... Somewhere over the Atlantic. I've spent the last nineteen years learning how to be Doogie Howser, M.D. Now it's time to learn how to be just Doogie.
