“Accepting the award for Dr. Borodin…”

Bust of Borodin at his grave

Who is the odd man out in the following list?

  • Alexander Borodin, M.D.
  • James Kildare, M.D.
  • Marcus Welby, M.D.
  • R. Quincy, M.E.
  • Gregory House, M.D.

    As is often the case, the “correct” answer depends on the context you bring to the question. For example, the most obvious choice (based solely on the list and with no other knowledge whatsoever of the names) would be that Quincy was a Medical Examiner, and the others weren’t, which is true; but if you said that the others were M.D.s and Quincy was not, then that is false, for he was both an M.D. and an M.E.
