Phillips (nicknamed "Super Dave") is the assistant coroner to Chief Medical Examiner Al Robbins. He received his self-ascribed nickname after saving the life of a victim during an autopsy. Due to his line of work, he is not fazed by much. Though earlier in the series, the main characters tease him about his supposed lack of social experience, David marries at some point early in the seventh season. (He makes mention in 703 "Toe Tags" about meeting with the wedding planner, and makes similar comments in other episodes). In the seventh season episode "Leapin' Lizards," he comments that his wife enjoys talking with him about the gruesome details of his work. "Why do you think I married her?" he asks Warrick Brown. In the ninth season, he is promoted to Assistant Medical Examiner and conducts his first solo autopsy.
It is mentioned in the season eight episode "A La Cart" that David's family is Jewish, and in the season two episode "Felonious Monk" that his father is a colonel at Nellis Air Force Base. In the 2002 episode "Cats in the Cradle," it is mentioned that David is allergic to cats.
