    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • While the 1940s sequences feature another actor playing Dr. Auschlander, the 1950s sequences attempt to 'age down' Norman Lloyd, perhaps because William Daniels and Ed Flanders are also attempting to play twentysomething versions of their characters in the 1950s sequences.

      • One of the main jokes of this episode is that in his youth Dr. Craig was an egotistical jerk much like Ehrlich. Indeed, his relationship with Dr. Domedion is more or less like Ehrlich's and Craig's.

      • When Dr. Domedion appeared as a wizened old man in the season 3 finale ("Cheers"), he was played by Dean Jagger. In this episode, Jackie Cooper takes over the role, which would certainly age Dr. Domedion at a slow rate.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (4)

      • Ed Begley Jr., Eric Laneuville, and Howie Mandel do not appear in this episode.

      • Previously, Craig has claimed that he was given a surgical instrument by his mentor, Dr. Domedion (when Craig himself reluctantly passed it on to Victor Ehrlich in an earlier episode). In this episode we see how he actually obtained it--he stole it! (Though even here he brags to Westphall that it was a gift)

      • Kevin O'Casey will return in season 6.

      • How to describe these 2 episodes: superb, unparalleled, thoroughly researched and rewarding. St. Elsewhere was given a rich history and backstory few other shows can ever dream of.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Both episodes of Time Heals contain many visual and musical allusions to the era a particular scene is set in: the 1930s sequences are done in Black and White, while the 1940s use muted colours (like a faded film print) while the 50s are brighter and more technicolor-like. The music uses the same musical cues it has always used, but the 30s have more brass in a more 30s Jazz pastiche and the 40s have more reed instruments and are done with more of a swing band pastiche
