Quincy, M.E.: ... The Thigh Bone's Connected to the Knee Bone ...

Dr. Astin orders Quincy to conduct a class in pathology for some of the brightest young minds at the university. When one of the students brings him a human bone found near a construction site, Quincy arouses Monahan’s ire by first stopping work at the site, and then at the city dump, while he searches for the rest of the skeleton. Unable to find more bones before work resumes, Quincy devotes his entire class to the reconstruction of a human life from the single bone he does have. But someone would prefer that bone not yield its secrets, and that person will stop at nothing to derail the investigation...

Episode Notes
When this episode aired, guest stars Linda Kelsey and Jack Bannon were six months from starring roles on CBS’s Lou Grant.

I can't find any credits, either in the beginning or in the end, for the actor who played Bernie Price, L.A. Police Art Department. He comes in at 22 minutes into the show.

Cultural References
This episode, dealing with the reconstruction of a human from bones is at least the conceptual ancestor of an entire series: on Fox’s Bones, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan and her staff do something like this every week.

Fans of The Love Boat will recognize Fred Grandy as Gopher, a role he played for the first nine years of the show (all but the final season).
