Did You Know?

George Clooney's early role as Mark Kolmar occurred a decade before he shot to fame as Dr Ross in the hugely successful medical drama of (almost) the same name, "ER" (1994).See more »
John Harrison:[about Dr. Sheinfeld] You didn't fire him?
Dr. Eve Sheridan:No.
John Harrison:I'll do it.
Dr. Eve Sheridan:Both of us.
John Harrison:What?
Dr. Eve Sheridan:You have to fire both of us.
John Harrison:Oh, now, Eve, please...
Dr. Eve Sheridan:I'm serious, John. You hired me to run this ER and I will run it as best I can. I grant you we have to make money, but the decisions on how have to be mine or you don't need me! I will say who works in this department and who doesn't. If you can't live with that, I'll have to resign.
John Harrison:Well, since you put it that way, I'll live with it. For now.

I miss those characters, 24 September 1999
Author: Nozz from Israel

I don't really remember the plots of the episodes, but I remember the continuing characters and I miss them. There was the beautiful little Filipina clerk who would suddenly snap at anyone who approached closer than the warning line that was painted on the floor, and I miss the adorable pediatric nurse who had a crush on the handsome doctor, and I miss the insouciantly fat lady, who was all about breaking the stereotype years before the fat lady lawyer did it on "The Practice," and I miss the Lou Rawls theme song. It was almost a parody of the way any theme song seems to be required to turn the title into a love metaphor: "I've got a real emergency here," he sang, but of course in the song the emergency is how smitten he is.
