Need info from the four Season 1 episodes that TNT skipped!! : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

Okay, we all know how TNT recently skipped about 4 episodes from Season 1 - the ones that originally aired around December & early January. I wondered if someone could fill me in on what happened then. I looked in the episode summary list on this website, but a few of those episodes did not have summaries here. The last one I saw was "9 1/2 Hours" then I saw the one where Deb shocked Carter with the paddles. I've seen all the TNT shows since that, but the other day there was an episode with the guy who was showing Susan all the pictures of single men, and Div was one of them and Malik said "they used to be together" or something. So I wondered whatever happened with Susan and Div. Also, somebody mentioned that Carter once tried to kiss Susan. What was that about? Any other general info would be good, also. The more responses, the better! Thanks!

Susan and Div dated during Season 1. He went "psycho" and moved out of his apartment without warning to anyone. I guess his patients got the better of him. Carter did try to kiss Susan. That also occurred during Season 1. In fact, Div leaving and Carter/Susan kiss happened during the same episode. Carter had drawn Susan's name in the Secret Santa pool. He bought her a nice music box thing with a carousel on top. Susan and Carter were at the door to her apartment. He leaned in and kissed her. She kissed him back, but decided that it wouldn't work between them (the whole med student/resident thing). She gave him the present that she intended to give Div which was a silk robe. It was very nice. That ended the Susan/Div & Susan/Carter relationships right there. I actually thought Susan/Carter would have made a nice pair. I preferred Susan/Mark though.

Carin, thank you so much for the info re. Susan and Carter's kiss. I didn't start watching ER til the 3rd season and I've been obsessed with finding out what happened on those skipped episodes. I understand them skipping the Christmas one, I guess, but 4 seems a little much to me. Anyhow, thanks again.

Speaking of skipping makes me SO angry that the scene in "Motherhood" where Carol & Susan strut back into the ER with their sunglasses on is always cut in syndication!! That was one of the best scenes...unless I was hallucinating it, but I'm fairly certain it took place.

Yes, Arianne, that scene did take place. TNT skipped it last night though. I have that episode on tape from a long time ago(I watched it recently), and it did have the sunbathing scene and Susan and Carol walking thru the ER with their sunglasses!(funny scene)

I didn't know, however Carter and Susan kissed! I missed that.

Wasn't it in the first season that Carter went to Benton's for Thanksgiving? I saw the epi recently where she invited him and then she died just before the end of the season, so it would have to be. I'm assuming that's one of the epis they skipped. I've watched since the beginning but can't remember if he went and if that was shown or not. Can anyone else? I'll go to the summaries and look too, but please post if you remember.

I remember an episode where Carter had a rough day...he was upset about a patient, and Benton found him and told him to hurry up and come with him. I think previously he had been angry that Carter had been invited to dinner (I would assume this would be the Thanksgiving dinner you were talking about, Diana) so Carter was kind of weary about going, but Benton kind of made him and it ended up being a sweet exchange between the two. I very vaguely remember this, so I'm not positive this is what you're looking for, but it fits. I don't think the dinner was shown though. I did see it in reruns though, so you know they tend to cut things out.

Thanks, Elaine, maybe I'll catch it next time around. I think you got the right one.

Well, TNT did promise to run those Season 1 eppys, but took out those including "Blizzard" because TPTB at TNT decided to run those over the holidays. I wrote them via e-mail and asked why they cut out entire episodes and they did answer me back--that was the reason. I did tell them it broke up the continuity and was very annoying.

Too bad they cut out the sunglasses scene. Didn't Quentin Tarantino direct that episode?
