Trivia

This was not only the final episode of "Quincy M.E", it also served as a back-door pilot of a proposed series entitled "The Cutting Edge" with many of the characters that were in this episode. Also, Anita Gillette, who played Quincy's wife Dr. Emily Hannover, was to have become a regular on this series once "Quincy" went off the air. See more »

Goofs

Allen Fawcett is Kenny Kelso. I'd guess then Paul Rudd must be the doctor. See more »

Seriously lame way to end a series.
19 June 2016 | by darkheath2001See all my reviews

I just finished watching the entire series (and after most episodes, I came to this site to read the reviews) and I just wanted to add something that I simply can't believe. This episode aired just 3 months after the fantastic "Goodbye, Farewell, & Amen", the final episode of M*A*S*H. Over 130 million people (when there were only about 250 million in the country at the time) tuned to watch that incredible tribute to the 11 years of the 4077th basically becoming family to most of us. Now Quincy was not nearly on par with MASH (especially during the later seasons), but how could the producers see, one; the incredible revenue generated and, two; the wonderful send off for a beloved set of characters and then do this to the loyal Quincy fans. No... it never would have even come close to MASH numbers, but they still could have generated some interest in a decent send off. I just watched 148 episodes over the last 2.5 years and this just left me feeling hollow knowing that there's nothing to follow.

The episode itself isn't horrible (neither was the Perlmutter episode), but neither of these were actually Quincy episodes. The fans deserved better.
