  1. Although this clip-show episode is generally poorly regarded, there are some great examples of the writers' penchant for puns and allusions. I've just added these two to the episode's IMDb page:

    In one scene Dr. Auschlander says to Ebenezer Wright, "In all candour, Eb, you're treating this as a cabaret." Kander & Ebb were the composer & lyricist who wrote the musical Cabaret.

    And in the scene where Eb collapses from a heart attack while addressing the hospital staff, his last words sound like, "In conclusion, I'd like to say..." but what he actually says is "In occlusion..." A coronary occlusion is a blockage of a coronary artery.
