    Dr. Bob needs your input, STAT!

    What is your favorite Veternarian's Hospital sketch?

    Shoe, from Episode 212: Bernadette Peters.

    Arsenic and Old Lace? That's an old joke!

    Yeah, the shoe was awesome. There's no business like shoe business :D

    The one where the sketch happens twice, the hungry operation table and the telephone had me laughing out loud, too. Oh and in the Bruce Forsyth episode, the chicken.
    Duck: DUCK!
    *takes cover under the table; peeks out*
    Whew, false alarm.

    I have a few favourites - the aforementioned "DUCK!" episode from Season One, the Christopher Reeve edition with Rowlf as the patient, the one from the Gene Kelly episode with the announcer crashing into the OR at the end, and the one from the Buddy Rich episode with Beauregard as the patient (after accidentally shocking himself while trying to fix the theatre lights).

    But I think my favourite is the version from the Phyllis George "Muppet Awards" episode, in which Dr. Bob keeps reading his acceptance speech (especially after learning the competition for Best Sketch is "Pigs In Space") and the cast eventually shrugs and walks off after Miss Piggy, realizing she's in both nominated sketches, mutters "Not much point in going on" and eventually leads the cast offstage.

    (The topper, of course, is that Phyllis George subsequently announces that "the judges have decided not to present an award in this category," infuriating Piggy.)

    What kind of doctor do you think I am?

    The duck one (Bruce Forsyth), the one where it's mixed with At The Dance (Nancy Walker), the one with Robin (Linda Lavin), the one at the "Muppet Awards" (Phyllis George), the one with Gonzo (UK Spot, I believe; Paul Simon), the one with Beauregard (Gene Kelly), the conga line with Marvin Suggs (if that counts; Jean Pierre-Rampal, I believe), the one with Christopher Reeve (self explanatory), the one with Loretta Swit (again, self explanatory), the one with the pig who loves Miss Piggy (Dizzy Gillespie (I think I spelled it wrong, sorry), and the one where they do the sketch twice
