What a shame. Then again, 90's not bad. Quincy was a great show and it had a great impact upon the care of tertiary diseases. Many drugs existed that were not economical to produce because the illnesses they treated were rare. A Quincy script dealt with the subject and became Klugman's personal charitable work. He became the public face of the lobbying effort for these so called orphan drugs.

Goddamit so much! I used to watch both "The Odd Couple" & "Quincy M.E." on a regular basis back when they were originally aired.

Saw him at Santa Anita many times. Loved the ponies. Fix the headline and this can go green, I would think.

A little Quincy trivia.
Season 8 Episode 18: Quincy's Wedding

This episode brings two substantial changes to the show. First of all, Quincy marries Emily finally, which means that Quincy is married for the first time in the show, though we know he was already married in the past. The second change is maybe even more remarkable: Quincy sells his beloved boat, his home at least since the beginning of the show almost seven years ago! From now on to the end of the show, he lives with Emily in the apartment in which she lived alone before. It turns out that Quincy is slovenly and easygoing while Emily is neurotic, a neat freak and uptight.

Despite Quincy's problems - careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food - he seems to enjoy life. Emily, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out her own and other people's mistakes and foibles. Even when she tries to do so in a gentle and constructive way, her corrections and suggestions prove extremely annoying to those around her. Quincy feels compelled to throw her out after only a brief time together, though he quickly realizes that Emily has had a positive effect on him.

Season 8 Episode 18: Quincy's Wedding

This episode brings two substantial changes to the show. First of all, Quincy marries Emily finally, which means that Quincy is married for the first time in the show, though we know he was already married in the past. The second change is maybe even more remarkable: Quincy sells his beloved boat, his home at least since the beginning of the show almost seven years ago! From now on to the end of the show, he lives with Emily in the apartment in which she lived alone before. It turns out that Quincy is slovenly and easygoing while Emily is neurotic, a neat freak and uptight.

Despite Quincy's problems - careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food - he seems to enjoy life. Emily, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out her own and other people's mistakes and foibles. Even when she tries to do so in a gentle and constructive way, her corrections and suggestions prove extremely annoying to those around her. Quincy feels compelled to throw her out after only a brief time together, though he quickly realizes that Emily has had a positive effect on him. chop her body into thousands of little pieces, buy back his boat, and sail to Mexico to a little fishing village where he lived in harmony with Juanita, the town slut.

FTFY

I forgot about that part and Quincy's dark passenger.

Um,

I liked the episode where Quincy got called for jury duty.

Oddly, both wives were played by the same actress, Anita Gillette. She had portrayed the late Helen Quincy in flashback scenes in the episode, "Promises to Keep", before being hired on as Quincy's girlfriend-cum-wife, Dr. Emily Hanover.  Between that and his insistence on living with hyper-critical neat-freaks, Quincy had a clearly defined "type".

I was just reading the "Quincy, M.E." wiki article and three things stood out to me: Emily also played his dead wife (in a flashback before she was cast as Emily).  Although Sam is mentioned in the article numerous times, he is not listed in the cast section.  Compared to a lot of good, older shows' pages, the page is a disjointed mess.
 
2012-12-24 10:10:35 PM  
I seriously thought he passed away back in the 1980's.
 
2012-12-24 10:10:59 PM  
I would have bet money that he died years ago.

According to this nerd's analysis, Red Shirts were 73% of on-screen TOS deaths.  But, I only know that because your friend writes TV Tropes & Idioms.

RIP Mr. Klugman, you had a hell of a run in a town known for spitting people out after only a short time, you made millions laugh on a regular basis & through it all (from what I could tell) you still remained a nice guy.  Not a bad epitaph all things considered.

Thanks for the many, many laughs growing up.  They were needed.

Somebody had to do it.  As long as the Hoff is still alive, it's not dead.

RIP Jack.  His Twilight Zone appearances were some of the best of the show's run.  And Quincy was mandatory viewing before I got my license.

Of the four episodes he had, "In Praise of Pip" was pretty weak, but no one could make that great. "Death Ship" was solid. "A Passage for Trumpet" is in my top 20. "A Game of Pool" is in the rarefied air of my top five.

The others are Time Enough At Last, Printer's Devil, Death's Head Revisited and He's Alive, by the way.
