I also liked that when Toby was "shrinking" someone, he could be completely serious. He wasn't just the comic relief or class clown. He medical knowledge of all kinds - and the way he cared for anyone he was dealing with on that level - rounded out his character.

I agree. It definitely made his character feel more authentic and well-rounded. As much as I enjoyed the humor he brought to the show, the more serious Toby scenes were always my favorite.

I particularly love when he gets into a heart-to-heart with someone when they were in a crisis of some sort. Especially some of the conversations he had with Paige or Walter.

Definitely. He's such a great character because he's multifaceted. Eddie was able to switch from those comedy moments to the serious moments in an instant and still be completely in character.

So do I. I love it so much I keep writing more of them!

I feel he has a real connection with Paige and I loved how their friendship developed. They care about each other without any hint of romance. It's special and quite rare for a TV show because we know how much writers think we all want love triangles!!

So true. A triangle with Paige and Walter and Toby would have been a disaster. I'm glad the writers restrained themselves. That they were able to write such a special friendship between a man and a woman without having it lead to romance.

Thank goodness they didn’t go that direction.

I agree with you both, the Toby/Paige friendship was wonderfully written and acted.

That was one thing I definitely loved - how he was sort of acting interested in her in the pilot, but then it so easily turned into friendship and they never actually toyed with it.

I got the impression that Toby's initial "interest" in Paige in the first episode was more of a mannerism. It's a Toby thing to feign attraction for just about any woman. Just as it's a Toby thing to make off color jokes at any opportunity.
