CHILDRENS HOSPITAL "Nip/Tug" Season 3, Episode 5 – One of the big developments in this episode is that Childrens Hospital is actually set in Brazil and staffed entirely by American expatriates (well, at least it was this week.) The massive shots of the Brazilian city scape as Glenn and Owen mundanely chatted were not only gorgeous, but were the punch line for the entire brilliant gag that one might argue was set up in the season opener when we saw Lola running through the streets of Southern California.

Dr. Tugg is the incredible pediatric plastic surgeon who is able to turn average children into Sarah Hyland look-a-likes and is "better than gooder with the ladies." He inadvertently makes waves among the Childrens Hospital staff as a result of his irresistible sexual presence. I loved the effect Dr. Tugg had on Glenn and Owen, inciting their jealousy and eventually befriending them by being bros on a mission for a huge surgery induced high. Seth Morris is credited as the hilarious Dr. Tugg, and if I’m not mistaken, he also played Dr. Nate Schacter, Blake’s clown race rival, in earlier Childrens Hospitalseasons. My favorite Tugg moment is a toss up between the scene where he describes the surgical process in detail to his patient’s mother and Cat who are immediately seduced by his gory sexual innuendo, and his final scene where he gives a speech consisting mostly of words that rhyme with his name.
