Characters Edit


  • Starting in this episode, Kristin Minter makes her first appearance as the ER's desk clerk, Randi. She would portray the role until the tenth season.


Doug: What can I say about Mark Greene that hasn't already been said? I think everybody knows how he overcame adversity as a child of Quakers, his years in exile, his political writings and limericks, his mod period with the turtlenecks, his blue period and of course, his ruthless march to power and the silencing of his rivals.
Haleh: I've known Mark Greene since he was a wet-behind-the-ears med student. He had the most beautiful curly blond hair and so polite. All I'd do was ask and he would be cleaning the bedpans and changing the sheets. He was the best scut-puppy I ever had.
Wendy: So would you say that, back then, he was sort of "green"?
Haleh: No, Wendy, I would never say that.
Carol: What is this, Crazy Fat Guy Day?
Shep (to Carol): You know what your problem is, Hathaway? You've been going out with too many doctors.
