You may know The Resident (co-creators: Hayley Schore and Amy Holden Jones) star Matt Czuchry best from Gilmore Girls (creator: Amy Sherman-Palladino) or even The Good Wife (creator: Michelle King). While his character might share a few similarities to some favorite roles, on The Resident he's neither a lawyer nor a rich Yale student. His character might think he's in a sort of life and death brigade, but he's a doctor now. He's got tattoos, bracelets, a scruffy beard, and the GIFs of Matt Czuchry in The Resident are not only a treat to look at, but will give you the boost you need to make it through the week.
On The Resident (director: Bronwen Hughes, one episode), Czuchry plays Conrad, one of the titular residents at the hospital. He's unorthodox, and his diagnoses are akin to a private detective finding that one hidden clue.
He's also like, very intense on the show. Maybe a little too intense sometimes — but that's what makes for a good character. He may think he has all of the answers, but he has a lot to learn as well. Whether you're watching the show and need to revisit some of these already epic moments, or are still deciding whether or not to give The Resident (director: Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum, one episode) a shot, take a journey with me through these GIFs for every occasion.

At the end of the day, residents are students and The Resident (editor: Nicole Vaskell, two episodes) can't ignore that completely. Still, do these GIFs make you feel like you can take on the world — or at least the hospital administration? Love him or hate him, Conrad knows exactly what he is about. That's admirable. As is his face.
