I guess I have to say that I still don't reaaly see a face when I am thinking of the doctor. . .but the idea of him fumbling around with an expensive pen fits and of course, the corny sense of humor has already been established, but I think he has a darker side that hasn't been explored yet; maybe even a few skeletons in his closet. . .I would imagine that it can be very taxing on the Good Doctor to hear about all these problems constantly. . .I'd love to read a therapy session with the doctor and HIS therapist!!!
