The Goonies come to the ER : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

I just thought it was funny that both the pregnant woman from this episode tonight and the pregnant junkie from Sins of the Fathers and Peace of Wild Things were both from the cult 80s classic "The Goonies." I don't know, not important I guess, but funny to me, a child of the 80s.

I thought she was from the Goonies! and I knew Martha Plimpton (the pregnant junkie) was from there too. I had made a post a while back...I thought Yosh was the kid who played Data on the Goonies, but I guess he's not. I loved that movie (it was jr high for me!)!

Oh my! That's where I'd seen her before! Great eyes!

Wasn't Yosh "Long Duck Dong" in "Sixteen Candles"... another 80's cult classic!

Yes, RA, Yosh was Long Duk Dong from 16 Candles.

The pregnant woman was played by Kerri Green.She was in The Goonies,she was also in the movie Lucas.Martha Plimpton,who played Meg,was also in Parenthood,Beautiful Girls,and a ton of other movies.Marth Plimpton also dated River Phoenix for a very long time(I know this because I used to have a HUGE crush on him when I was younger-sigh).

I remember her from LUCAS! I wondered where I'd seen her.

Apparently, the kid who played Data in "The Goonies" Key Huy Quan played an intern on "ER" at some period of time (according to IMDb, and it doesn't say which intern).

thanks for that revelation! i too am a child of the 80's and although i had a flicker of recognition for both actresses i hadnt put it together. just for those of you who may not be goonie fans go rent it: the pregnant junkie was the geekie friend and the woman with mass kids was the cool crowd, much sought after but nice little rich everybody sing....

Good enough for you is good enough for me its good enough good enough for me..yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah! god bless cyndi lauper

Thanks, anonymous! That must be where the confusion came in on Gedde Watanbe (Yosh) being Data. I wonder which epidsode Jonathon Ke Quan was in on ER?!
