  • Quotes

    • Dr. Canfield: We've got a lot of gifts to give out. We'll start at pediatrics, then go to geriatrics, and if we don't make it to the psychiatric ward, we'll just tell them it's Christmas on Tuesday.

    • Doogie's Journal Entry: December 25... Christmas. Getting is good. Giving is better. Once you understand that, it's always Christmas.
