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


  1. Craig misremembers performing his first heart transplant in 1965. It was 1975 according to "Time Heals, Pt. 1." Lizzie says she is 21. Didn't she just turn 18 a year or so ago? (Season 3).

  2. Meta-Media Alert: Turner, addressing Morrison, says, "Let's hit the road, Jack," a reference to the song "Hit the Road, Jack" by Ray Charles.
