Jenna, Great list. I must admit that I appear to be obsessed with ER. Maybe I need a psych consult. Where's a doctor when you need one? lol

-- Carin (, March 27, 2000.

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one out there that is obsessed with ER! I'm in front of the TV every night to get my fix of Noah Wyle! ER Rules!!!!

-- Jen (, March 27, 2000.

Should I be worried that 25 of the above are real for me?

-- Joseph (, March 27, 2000.

Way too many of those are true for me! :) Glad to know I'm not the only one - especially since my friends are sick and tired of me talking about ER!

I've honestly spent the better part of the last year racking my brain trying to figure out how I could play the part of a patient on ER. I'd even play a prostitute w/chronic P.I.D. if it would get me a recurring role...maybe I could drift thru singing songs from the 80's and let everyone try to guess who I am and why I'm there. Maybe I could wear a helmet and decorate the ER for special occasions / holidays or answer the phones while spinning around in the chairs.

How about-you find yourself saying things like-"that was SO Ramono", "Doug would have done it this way", "Carter!", etc. Oh-or you start actually calling your grandmother "Gamma"!! My family wants to certify me as addicted to ER. Oh, well....looks like I'm in good company!!! LOL

I kept coming back to this thread to see the responses. Loved it! My favorite, BTW, is # 49. I tried to watch both THE SOPRANOS and SEX IN THE CITY on HBO and have to say that I didn't get it when they won all the Emmys last fall. They bored the snot out of me. Also loved #52, how dare those founding fathers, or whoever, putting the State of the Union address on Thursday nights. I always assume, it being in January, that the epi that night would have been a rerun anyway. Hey, it helps me accept! :)

-- Diana (, March 28, 2000.

Uh oh, I actually DO do all of that! Except for the fact that I already own two pairs of scrubs, and am looking for a pair of mint green, and I don't wear a kid's stethoscope, I stole my mom's!

-- Lisa (, March 29, 2000.

How about name season 1-6 in order with orginal air dates (I do not know anyone who can do this but if you can your are obsessed!:)

-- Patience (, March 30, 2000.

When you cook any recipe calling for Romano cheese, you refer to it as "troll cheese". [My cousin and I--both big ER fans--call Dr. Romano "the troll"]

-- Lilith (, May 04, 2001.

Oops, guess my cousin and I aren't too original...Elizabeth refers to Romano as "the troll" as well. My bad. . .

-- Lilith (, May 23, 2001.

How about You dress up as an ER characterfor halloween
