Northern Exposure – Season 1, Episode 2

"Brains, Know How and Native Intelligence"

Today we meet Chris!

Things I love about this episode:
Walt Whitman poetry
Joel's toilet angst!
Ed's Uncle Anku
Maurice's Over the Top Anger – and subsequent obsession with playing Musical Theater on air

Taken from
Ed asks Dr. Fleischman to help him convince his uncle, a traditional tribal medicine man, to seek medical treatment for a health problem. A self-reliant Maggie chides Joel about being helpless around the house. Chris angers Maurice when he reads some poetry by Walt Whitman and uncovers some facts about the poet's life that Maurice would prefer not knowing.
