Quotes

Dr. Mark Greene: I'd get here at 6 a.m., sweep up, mop the locker rooms, skim the pool. $1.25 an hour.
Rachel: That's slave wages.
Dr. Mark Greene: It was enough to keep me in new records and good weed.
[Rachel looks at Mark, surprised]
Dr. Mark Greene: What? You know, records, LPs, vinyls. Those funny, big black things that your hip-hop heroes are always ripping off for their songs.

Missing at funeral
25 September 2006 | by careyg22See all my reviews

Since doctors Greene and Ross were such good buddies, best friends, why weren't Doug and Carol (nurse Hathaway) at Mark's funeral? I was so disappointed that they were not there. Just about everybody else was there. Even doctors Benton and Finch were there, and they had left the show as well. Doug and Mark went through so much together, helping each other out, playing golf and handball, going through rough times. I just don't understand it. With friends like that, what would keep a person from attending his "Best Friend's" funeral, especially the way Dr. Greene died. Could you tell me the circumstance that kept George Clooney and Juliana Margulies from making a cameo appearance during the funeral scene at the end of that episode? Please respond, I'd really like to know.
