  • The difference between being a man and truly acting like one; sexism and homophobia.

    8.5
    Doogie gives into male bravado and implies that he had sex with a nurse the previous night. The nurse overhears the "pig" talk and she decides to spread all sorts of wild rumors about him; i.e. he has a sexual disfunction. Meanwhile, Vinnie is happy to move into the same dorm room as his new best friend, until he learns that his friend is gay At the time this was a pretty daring episode (dealing with sexism and homophobia) and the good (often witty) writing stands up to the test of time. It would have been a bit nicer if the gay dorm roommate did not all but vanish from the show, but this was one of the better episodes of what turned out to be the final season.moreless
