  • Episode Description
  • Doogie gets the opportunity to see what it means to be a grown man, when he discovers his girl friend has a four-year old son and Dr. Ron Welch asks him to be his best man. Doogie starts to realize being a genius doesn't have to mean doing everything before people normally do it. He can do stuff in his own time, whether that be early, on-time, or even later than others.moreless

    • Personal journal of Doogie Howser, M.D.: FEBRUARY 16, 1992... The down side of growing up is that sometimes doing what's best for you means breaking someone's heart. Including your own.

    • Vinnie: That's right -- a bachelor party. The one night when men get to-- no, are expected to act like disgusting pigs. Drinkin' and smokin' 'til they puke, all the while ogling scantily-clad women who prance merrily before them.

      Doogie: What a lovely tradition.
