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


  1. The music in Dr. Morrison's dream sequence is clearly a sound-a-like of the middle portion of 'Heartbreaker' by Led Zeppelin and was recorded very much in this decade, not the 1980s. The question is, what music played when it aired?

    1. I saw it and here in oz they used HEARTBREAKER 99% sure the LZ2 version. I once tried to learn this solo.

  2. Also, it's often reported ZZ Top make an appearance in this episode. Not true. It is Howie Mandell, Erlich and Stephen Faust dressed as ZZ Top.

  3. I have been watching St. Elsewhere on IMDB. The prints are murky-looking and the episodes are desecrated, edited to bits with whole scenes gone. I wonder if the quality any better on HULU.
