I was a small screen spin-off from film, not TV,
At least, that is how it was ruled legally.
Still a doctor, but in a place far, far less manic,
Mentoring a guy who lives in the Titanic.

TRAPPER JOHN, M.D.: A lawsuit over the spinoff ruled that Trapper John, M.D. was a spinoff of the movie M*A*S*H, not the TV show. His mentee, a young doctor, lived in a trailer ironically called "the Titanic."

Episode Notes

Ron Silver played a campaign manager on The West Wing, not a lawyer. Our host temporarily confused him in his mind with Oliver Platt.
