  • Quotes

    • 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.
