As Doc spoke the words : "This is no island paradise. It's a shooting gallery."

My favorite "Doc Bergman scene" takes place in "Try to die on time" a season 6 episode when a body is found in a wine cellar.

I can't remember the exact words of the original , but I have watched the German versions so often that the German words come into my head immediately. The German words, translated,mean "This is no tropical island, this is a slaughter house"!

I was also able to "book 'em all." According to the comments beneath the quiz, not many were able to get all of them right. I like the screen cap of Jenny Sherman in her lime green dress with the matching wide watchband! I remember those watchbands from the 70s. That's interesting about Al Eben, H5O. I think the last role of his that I saw was in an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond." Al was on the screen for all of two seconds, playing one of Frank's lodge buddies. But he was in the credits for those two seconds! I think that he was the perfect choice to play Doc Bergman and I love his scenes with Steve and Danny, explaining the scientific and medical stuff or telling them to be patient until he is finished with his job. Great stuff!

I was able to "book 'em all," too. Doc was always one of my favorite characters, especially as portrayed by Al Eben. I found it interesting that Mr. Eben almost always played the smallest role. For example, in "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn," he played the union official, and we only saw the back of his head for a few seconds. Quite often, his roles were uncredited. An exception was his appearance in "White Pongo" in which he played a major role, that of the bad guy. It is the only instance of which I am aware in which his appearance lasted long enough to let us see what his acting style was really like. He played it very well. We know almost nothing about the rest of his life, except that, in his later years, he read to young school children. He was married for many years to Sylvia Kunin, a concert pianist, who founded the Young Musicians Foundation and started a program on public television to help keep music education alive by showcasing exceptional musical talent in young people. Bless her heart.

Mahalo nui, Honu, these ME-TV challenges are a lot of fun.

I can "book 'em all", H50, though I don't think I should, but give other members the possibility to compete.
So here is #11: Doc Bergman (always liked that grumpy doc).
