About Dr. ThatcherEdit
During the "Archie's Operation" episode, Archie must receive a precautionary reserve of donated blood before his gall bladder surgery. As it turns out, Dr. Thatcher, a woman of West Indian descent, is the only available donor with the matching rare blood type (AB-). Archie, predictably, is not pleased with the prospect of receiving blood from a black woman.
