Medicine on TV Trivia Questions

1. Any lover of TV murder mysteries is sure to recognize small-town M.D. Seth Hazlitt. In which series is he more of a companion to the real crime solver, rather than a major contributor to the process of solving each crime?

From Quiz
More TV Doctors

Answer: Murder, She Wrote

William Windom plays the role of Dr. Hazlitt, the town doctor of lead character Jessica Fletcher's home town of Cabot Cove, Maine. Often cantankerous, he is Jessica's constant companion when she is at home, and has traveled with her to other locations in several episodes. While a competent MD, he rarely gives much insight to the solving of the plethora of murders that take place in a small town of 3,500.

2. In which series would we find Dr Leonard McCoy?

From Quiz Who's the Doctor

Answer: Star Trek

Played by DeForest Kelley, Dr Leonard (Bones) McCoy featured in almost all the original "Star Trek" episodes. Dr McCoy then popped up in the "Star Trek" feature films.

3. "House, M.D." is just one of many TV series where an unconventional smart character clashes with his or her superiors. Who is the hospital administrator and boss of Gregory House, M.D.?

From Quiz One House and Several Other TV Doctors

Answer: Dr. Lisa Cuddy

Dr. House leads a diagnostic team in the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. He is confronted with the most mysterious illnesses, and uses logical deduction and elimination to find out what's wrong - in a way that reminds the audience of Sherlock Holmes. Hugh Laurie plays the self-declared genius Dr. House. The hospital is lead by Dr. Lisa Cuddy, Dean of Medicine. She frequently argues with Dr. House about proper procedures to be followed. Her role was portrayed by Lisa Edelstein during the first seven seasons. However, she's not around anymore in the eighth and final season. Dr. James Wilson, the oncologist (role by Robert Sean Leonard), is one of the three colleagues of Dr. House who appear in each and every season. The other are the neurologist Dr. Eric Foreman (played by Omar Epps) and Dr. Robert Chase, specialised in intensive care (role by Jesse Spencer). Dr. Allison Cameron, immunologist (played by Jennifer Morrison) is one of the main characters during the first six seasons. Jennifer Morrison appears as a special guest star in season eight. Olivia Wilde plays the internist Dr. Remy Hadley during seasons four up till eight. During the seventh season, she's billed as a main character.

4. What was unusual about the home of the lead character in the television program "Quincy M.E." (1976-1983)?

From Quiz Autopsy Room Four

Answer: It was a sailboat

Jack Klugman portrayed a Los Angeles Medical Examiner in the NBC hit program "Quincy M.E." His home was a sailboat which was shown periodically throughout the years.

It is considered to be the hallmark of all future crime dramas which focus on forensic sciences.

5. What was the surname of the doctor played by Milburn Stone on the long-running Western "Gunsmoke"?

From Quiz The Doctor Will See You Now...

Answer: Doc Adams

Milburn Stone portrayed the kindly doctor, Galen Adams, in the town of Dodge City from 1955 through 1975. Marshall Matt Dillon, played by James Arness, kept the peace in the town and Miss Kitty Russell (Amanda Blake) was the owner of the Long Branch Saloon (way ahead of her time!). All the incorrect choices were fictional doctors, at one time or another, on that other long-running Western, "Bonanza" (1959-1973).

6. On the television show "Bewitched" (1964-1972), what was the name of the character portrayed by actor Bernard Fox?

From Quiz Somebody Get Me a Doctor

Answer: Dr. Bombay

"Bewitched", which ran from 1964-1972, was a television comedy that centered around a beautiful good witch named Samantha who married a 'mortal' named Darrin. Dr. Bombay was a witch doctor who was often called upon to assist Samantha with the hilarious situations that arose because of this mismatch. He always appeared in silly costumes that reflected whatever strange activity he had been involved in before being magically summoned by Samantha or other wacky members of her family. His unusual antidotes often only complicated the situation.

7. In a first season episode of the long running TV series "MASH", Hawkeye removed Henry's inflamed appendix. What did Henry give Hawkeye in gratitude for having saved his life?

From Quiz This Television Quiz Has an Appendix

Answer: Hawkeye's own long-johns

"The Long-John Flap" (first aired February 17, 1973) was episode 19 in the first season of "MASH", which had an original run from 1972 to 1983, and which can still be seen in syndication around the world. This was the first of many episodes to be written by Alan Alda, who also played the part of Captain Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce, one of the madcap surgeons in the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital unit that provides the title of the series as well as its setting. The series was set in the Korean War, and this episode concerned the difficulty of living in tents during the cold Korean winters. Everyone was freezing cold except Hawkeye, who received a pair of long-johns (thermal underwear) sent from Maine by his father. The long-johns formed the basis for a series of comic incidents reminiscent of a French farce. When Trapper got sick, Hawkeye gave the long-johns to him to speed his recovery; Trapper lost them to Radar in a poker game; Radar traded them to the cook for a hot roast lamb dinner; the cook bribed Frank to overlook the unsanitary kitchen conditions; Frank gave them to Margaret as a sign of his affection; Klinger stole them from Margaret's tent, then gave them to Father Mulcahy in a fit of remorse; Father Mulcahy gave them to Henry for safekeeping, and Henry was wearing them when he suffered an attack of appendicitis. After Hawkeye successfully removed the offending appendix, Henry gratefully returned his long-johns.

8. Dr. Gregory House probably has the worst bedside manner in the history of medicine. Who plays this cantankerous medic?
