Dr. Douglas "Doogie" Howser: [Journal Entry] March 21, 1993... Somewhere over the Atlantic. I've spent the last nineteen years learning how to be Doogie Howser, M.D. Now it's time to learn how to be just Doogie.

Dr. Douglas "Doogie" Howser: When I was a child, all my days were filled with endless wonder. When I was a child, I would lie on the dew-covered grass and search the vast evening sky for falling stars. When I was a child, my friends and I would venture deep into the woods and tell tales of the Grim Reaper... Who with sickle in hand... Icily searched for his next victim. We weren't afraid, he came only for the old, not us. When I was a child, I would look to my mother's arms for warmth and my father's eyes for approval. When I was a child, I wondered... When will I be grown? Now I'm an adult and I wonder... Can I ever be a child again?

[sighs]
Roy Lester: she started crying. Well, I just can't take sobbing, so...
Dr. Doogie Howser: So you did the natural thing - You married both of them.
Roy Lester: [sighs] Look, it's like this. When I stare into those beautiful brown eyes or... beautiful blue eyes, depending on which face I'm staring into, I just get all silly. But it's not like I'm a womanizer, doc. I'm totally faithful... to both of them.
Dr. Doogie Howser: And you have families with both?
