* MercyKill: In one episode, Bobby is asked to help his retired cancer-stricken teacher to stop hurting. He gives her an overdose of morphine.
** In another one, as Doc is transporting a badly burned colleague to a hospital with a special burn unit, the man begs him to do this (aside from the agony he's already in, he knows full well it's only a matter of time before he dies from infection and dehydration). Doc finally complies and does the same as Bobby did.
