There's an episode of Community with a great line from Jeff Winger. He heads back to see Pierce (Chevy Chase) without the nurses permission, so she starts to scold him. He responds with, "Or what? You'll do twice the work for half the pay?"

Need another show that was able to show just how valuable nurses are? Go watch Scrubs. If you have already seen Scrubs, be sure to check out the podcast from Zack Braff and Donald Faison, Fake Doctors, Real Friends.
