Trivia

The scene where Carter reads Mark's letter, followed by Elizabeth's letter wherein we find out Mark has died, closely echoes the penultimate scene of the film "Mister Roberts." This includes not only Ensign Pulver reading Mister Roberts' letter out loud, but the posting of the letter for the hospital staff - in Mr. Roberts, the letter is posted for the crew. See more »

Goofs

The stethoscope that Carter takes out of Mark Greene's locker and switches with his own is the wrong model. Mark Greene used a cardiology stethoscope either a Littman Cardiology or an ADC 601. Carter used a Sprague-Rappaport, which is what he removed from Mark's locker. See more »

Quotes

Dr. John Carter: You know, there are two kinds of doctors: the kind that get rid of their feelings, and the kind that hold on to them. If you're going to hold on to your feelings, you're going to get sick every once in a while. That's part of it. Helping people is more important than how we feel. Hell, I've been doing this eight years, and I still get sick.
