  • Doggie is asked to teach a safe-sex class in the high school. He has a confrontation with a jock and that leads to him having to fight him.

    This was a pretty decent episode.

    I loved the verbal confrontation between Doogie and Tank. It showed that while Tank may be physically stronger he can never match Doogie in the battle of wits.

    What I like most about this series is that Doogie seems to learn a valuable lesson in every episode. In this one it was the realization that Doctors are held to a higher standard by society and he can never afford to behave like he did. He has to find a way out of situations like this like an adult. I also liked the talk Doogie had with his Dad at the end of the episode. The 'knowing you can fight if you have to' line was really great.
