Storyline

Westphal, Craig and Auschlander go to the bar "where everybody knows your name," manned by a skeleton staff (Carla plus patrons Norm and Cliff). These sequences are not played for laughs (although Auschlander takes a potshot at Norm for bungling his taxes). During the meeting at Cheers, Westphal announces he is quitting medicine. Craig later meets an old mentor who is suffering from advanced dementia and doesn't recognize him. An Easter theme runs through this show as a man claiming to be the Messiah shows up for a Celtics game, is crucified by a bunch of thugs, brought into the ER apparently dying and ... well, you know the rest. Written by Peter Harris

Dean Jagger deserved an Emmy
16 April 2016 | by (santa cruz california) – See all my reviews

From the moment I watched Dean Jagger first come on screen and play a man with severe dementia I was struck to the quick with the fear of loss for myself, and with each line he spoke and each movement he made I was enthralled and frightened and tearful, knowing what I had to look forward to caring for with my own parents and where I too would possibly be.

The anger and disinterest of the dementia sufferer segued into the happy appreciation of the child. The moment Dr. Domedian recognizes Mark, his protégé, struck me like a fist the emotions were so strong. That fist became a knife as that lucid moment faded so quickly and Domedian fell back into the bad dream of his sore and painful internal world.

That Dean Jagger was not praised and lauded for this deep and sensitive portrayal speaks more to the nations shunning of the aged in that mid 80's era than to the quality of his portrayal. Show that show today and I would hope his brilliance would shine and be praised.
