Watching St. Elsewhere on Hulu or elsewhere? Feel free to comment on this episode below.


  1. Meta-Media Alert: Mrs. Hufnagel tells Morrison that she and her husband used to run a diner called Flo & Eddie's. This is a reference to Mark Volman (Flo) and Howard Kaylan (Eddie), the two frontmen of the '60s pop group The Turtles, who, for contractual reasons, went by assumed names when they worked with Frank Zappa and released albums as a duo.

  2. Rosenthal's daughter Erin says she has a date with Will Robinson--a reference to the Lost in Space character?
