    • QUOTES (1)

      • Personal journal of Doogie Howser, M.D.: MAY 4, 1992... ''A riot is at bottom the language of the unheard.'' -- Martin Luther King. I've been taught that the best way to learn a language is to try and speak it. This time I'd better just shut up and listen.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Episode Title: There's A Riot Going On The title is very similar to the album produced by funk band Sly & the Family Stone in 1971, entitled, There's a Riot Goin' On. It is seen as one of the most powerful and influential albums of the 70's.
