Airing on Creator/{{NBC}} from 1982-88, ''St. Elsewhere'' was the first prime-time MedicalDrama in almost a decade to use {{continuity}} for CharacterDevelopment. It would be a model for many shows that followed it, including ''{{ER}}''.

* DownerEnding: The finale's reveal that it was AllJustADream, although that evidently wasn't enough since the credits ''make it worse'' by '''[[spoiler:killing Mimsie, the kitten mascot]]'''. YouBastard. [[labelnote:Spoiler note]]To be fair, they just used a photo of a different (not dead) cat lying on its side. Mimsie [[FunnyAneurysmMoment did die later that year, though.]][[/labelnote]]

** Before [[spoiler:Victor's]] wedding, as he's having second thoughts due to a mysterious other woman, Dr. Craig tells him, "This is not 1968. It's time you ''graduate'' into adulthood.

* BearTrapBed: Mrs. Hufnagel is discovered trapped in her bed like this in a Season 3 episode "Murder, She Rote". For the most part it's treated seriously, but there's also some degree of comedy, as the person who discovers her doesn't take it seriously until he notices she's not responding, and two of the first three doctors he tells about it can't help but chuckle. [[note:It's also played with in that, while the bear-trap bed certainly didn't help things, that wasn't what actually did her in.]]
