Frank's my favorite character. It's funny how much "Margaret's Engagement" centers on him rather than Houlihan; with its empathic take on what made him tick it's the closest Ferret Face ever got to his own "Nurses".

Watching him tell off Hawkeye for his selfish attitude toward his patients in "Novocaine" is a perverse pleasure for me, and I don't think Frank had as many funny moments as he did in "Soldier Of The Day," what with his will and his rat trap scene.

That said, I picked "The Bus." It's full-on Frank at his oddest, yet he meshes with the other characters in a surprising way. Every now and then I catch myself staring up at the stars in the night sky and catch myself thinking: "I'm standing directly under the brightest one."
