  • Quotes

    • Vinnie: (as a beat poet in Doogie's daydream) The nuclear winter froze my blood, like your lips chilled me last Tuesday. Ode to a president's wife: Oh, Mamie. What has your lover man wrought?

    • Personal journal of Doogie Howser, M.D: OCTOBER 18, 1992... Finally, my own place. From this moment on, I live my own life, I answer to no one. I'm totally free! Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

    • Mrs. Howser: Actually, David, I can see how an open space like this in a free-spirited neighborhood like this can appeal to a young person like Doogie.
      Dr. Howser: Oh, fine. Thank you, Miss Woodstock, Queen of the '60s.

    • Harold the landlord: (picking up roach Doogie's father has stomped) Did you know a cockroach has fewer germs than a human mouth?
      Dr. Howser: Don't eulogize him. Just get rid of him.

    • Doogie: I'm not exactly the Venice type.
      Vinnie: How do you know what type you are?
      Doogie: I just know this is not me.
      Winnie: Howser, you don't know who you are. The only "you" you know is the you your father's been telling you is you since the day you were born.

    • Vinnie: My father bought a toupee. Looks like he's balancing a road-kill on his head. Something in the weasel family.

    • Vinnie: (about his parents) It's an amicable divorce. If you ask me, it's a whole lot more amicable than the marriage ever was.
