      • Personal journal of Doogie Howser, M.D.: OCTOBER 10, 1992... A physician searches others for signs of illness and disease. A human being searches others for signs of himself. Humanity is a profession we all share.

      • The German episode title is "Von Patienten und Torturen", meaning "Of Patients and Torture".

      • James Sikking (Dr. David Howser) and Kathryn Layng (Nurse Curly Spaulding) don't appear in this episode, although they are featured in the opening credits.

      • This episode was aired out of production order. It's production number is 1401, while the previous week's episode is 1408. Likewise, the date on the journal entry is October 10, 1992, while the date on the journal entry of the previous week is October 18, 1992.

        Which probably explains why Doogie is back living at home AFTER having put down a down-payment on a history-filled loft in the previous episode.
