Crosby’s longest run of appearances was on the show of future husband Jack Klugman: Quincy, M.E.

The show revolved around a medical examiner who would often investigate murders, doubling as, in the words of Quincy actor Jack Klugman ‘a doctor and a cop.’

Quincy was a hugely successful TV show with 141 episodes from 1976 to 1983.

Klugman, who made for an unlikely lead, was purportedly involved with Crosby during this period in an on-again off-again romance.

Crosby herself appeared in six episodes of the hit TV show.

She first appeared in a 1977 episode, “Holding Pattern,” and was simply credited as “girl.”

Peggy appeared in two more episodes in 1978 in back-to-back episodes, but not as the same character; in the episode “Double Death,” she appeared as “Peggy,” and in the following episode, entitled “Requiem for the Living,” she appeared as “Dee Dee.”

Crosby made two more appearances on the show in 1979.

In the episode “No Way To Treat A Flower,” she was simply credited as “bargirl.”

She then reprised her role as Peggy (but was not credited) in the episode “For The Benefit Of My Patients.”

Peggy made her final appearance in the 1981 episode “Of All Sad Words,” again reprising a past role – that of “Dee Dee.”
