Life in a hospital can make for wonderful television.

Here's a look at some of our favorite medical television shows.

11. Nurse Jackie

Nurse Jackie
Nurse Jackie is a showcase for Edie Falco. She's incredible on the Showtime series.

10. St. Elsewhere

St. Elsewhere
Yup, that's Denzel Washington as part of the St. Elsewhere cast. It set the stage for future medical shows.

9. Doogie Howser, M.D.

Doogie Howser, M.D.
Barney who?!? Neil Patrick Harris shot to fame as Doogie Howser, M.D..

8. Private Practice

Private Practice
Thanks to Grey's Anatomy, the bar was set very high Private Practice. Addison and company never cleared it, but six seasons is nothing to sniff at.

7. Chicago Hope

Chicago Hope
Chicago Hope was a strong drama that only made one major mistake: it came out at the same time as ER.

6. House

More of a character study of one man than a look at life in a hospital, House challenged viewers each week with crazy medical cases.

Scrubs Quotes

J.D.'s Thoughts: Wait, is she in to me? Quick, make a bad joke and see if she laughs.
J.D.: Did you hear the one about the skeleton who couldn't go to the party? He had no body to go with.
Neena: That's really funny!
J.D.'s Narration: Well that's not a fair test - that joke's hilarious.

J.D.: Hey, I heard a great joke. A guy walks into a dentist's office and says, "I think I'm a moth." And the dentist says, "Well, if you think you're a moth, why are you at a dentist's office?"
J.D.'s narration: Oh, no, I forgot the punchline... You can't bail out now! Stall! Stall!
J.D.: ...So the moth says "That's a good question. What kind of dentist are you?" And the dentist says, "Well, I'm a general dentist, but I...I do dabble in orthodontry - braces and such." And... and the moth says, "Orthodontry? I hear there's great money in that."
J.D.'s narration: "The light was on"!
J.D.: "But! To answer your original question, which was, if I think I'm a moth, why am I in a dentist's office? The answer is, Because the light was on!" The light! The light, James. Moths love light. So, James, other than your funny bone being broken, what seems to be the problem?
