David's Role:

David played Scott Galbraithe, a cop who is in town as a temporary replacement for a regular character. He's a by-the-book kind of guy who likes a 17 year old girl named Jo. When she turns him down he finds out that she likes a male nurse named Michael. Scott goes head to head with Michael in a very amusing storyline.


This is the second of three appearances David made on this show. The other two were Mozart Rules and It's My Party.

John Hanlon and Joyce Jacobs were two of the few regular cast members to be around through all three of David's appearances. Brian Wenzel did not appear in this episode, but was in the other two. David's character served as his substitute in this episode.

The following actors were in the episode titled Mozart Rules: Nicholas Bufalo, Lorrae Desmond, Diane Smith, Kate Raison, Josephine Mitchell, Gordon Piper, Syd Heylen, Bernadette Hayes and Emily Leiding.

Nicholas Bufalo (Dr. Green) starred in the film Gino.

Brett Climo took over the role of Robbie Doyle in several episodes of The Blue Heelers. David had originated the part in the episode titled Happy Families. Brett also had a role in Killing Time as David Ross.
