Storyline

Michael Crichton has created a medical drama that chronicles life and death in a Chicago hospital emergency room. Each episode tells the tale of another day in the ER, from the exciting to the mundane, and the joyous to the heart-rending. Frenetic pacing, interwoven plot lines, and emotional rollercoastering is used to attempt to accurately depict the stressful environment found there. This show even portrays the plight of medical students in their quest to become physicians. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

In Season 8 Episode 20 "The Letter" the faxed letter from Dr Greene followed by the fax from his wife announcing his death mimics the final scene in the 1955 movie Mister Roberts. Both characters wrote nostalgic letters to their last job/assignment. Immediately after the letters are read in both scenes it is immediately followed by another letter announcing their death. Also in both scenes the reader of the letter crumples it in their hand before they announce the bad news. See more »

Goofs

In the first two seasons Carter mentions having a sister. She does not exist in any way in later seasons. See more »

Quotes

Ken Ambrose: Don't touch it! It hurts!
Dr. Greg Pratt: We're gonna take care of that.
Ken Ambrose: Oh, God, I see a light!
Dr. Greg Pratt: You're not dying. It's just your ankle.
Ken Ambrose: Oh, God! Ohhhhh!

Alternate Versions

A couple of other noticeable differences between the two live broadcasts: Eriq La Salle's character stumbles and drops something out of his pocket in one version, and George Clooney's "neck cracking" gag elicits a startled response (and makes a louder sound) in the first version. See more »

I like it
10 May 2004 | by mechmaniacSee all my reviews

I have seen every single episode from 1994 to present. I can't say much to it personally that can do it justice so I'm simply going to leave it at that I have learned much from this show, it has a lot of feeling and a lot of heart, and I have grown with it. If I'm labeled as a die-hard fan, then so be it. I'm a guy and I love E.R. Hey, I'm square with that... ; ) And to those who say it's too long because characters leave... welcome to real life. People go places, they die, they have their troubles, they go out with 4 different people (sometimes incredibly in the same workplace). They don't call it drama for nuttin' :D
