      • Mrs. Howser (smiling forcedly): This is not happening. Doogie, answer this for me, has he flipped?
        Doogie: Well I... I still think he's in a mood. It's gotten more intense, but I believe it's temporary.
        Mrs. Howser: Can you imagine him around this house everyday, sawing and banging away?
        Doogie: That thought is frightening.

      • Dr. Howser (grunting in pain): Was the human body meant to do this?
        Dr. Canfield: Yes, but our bodies haven't been human for twenty-thirty years.
        (Dr. Howser laughs)
        Dr. Canfield: The exercise bikes are pretty safe.
        Dr. Howser: Good idea.

      • Vinnie: What you doin'?
        Doogie: Oh, I'm throwing all these old medical journals out.
        Vinnie: Why?
        Doogie: Well, I've memorized most of them.
        Vinnie: I got my favorite educational journal memorized too.
        Doogie: Which one?
        Vinnie: Playboy. It's like weird. I've all kinds of trouble in history class but I can tell you that Miss July 1987's favorite pastimes are snow skiing, riding horses and baking. Is there some kind of medical term for what I got?
        Doogie: I think you'd be diagnosed as a horndog.

      • Doogie's Journal Entry: March 10, 1990... Tonight my dad heard people say things about him you usually don't hear until you're dead. He couldn't ask for a better reason to go on living.
