What does "Pick a finger"mean?

Posted by Kashima on August 08, 2003

I am now translating an American TV drama. A doctor is criticised by his colleagues for letting his patient die right after a surgery, but he refused to admit his neglegence, holds up his left hand (all his figers except his thumb) and says, "Pick a finger." Could anyone eplain what this phrase means?
