ET's ER story 8/17/00 - one slight spoiler : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

Anthony Edwards on George and Julianna: "They both wanted to leave the show and they should go away and stay away."


Did we all notice Maura Tierney sporting a new haircut and a pink NURSE uniform? Yup.

They talked to Alex and Goran and Maura and Michael and Eriq for a few seconds each. None of whom revealed anything. But Eriq and Michael were cute together. :-) Michael said to him, "I made you lovable!"

Who besides me hates Anthony now? He is nothing but a back stabbing stuck up snob. He told "Donnie and Marie" that he'd miss them. Now he doesn't? I'm really starting to wonder if those rumors are true about him and GC. What a jerk! So Abby is the new nurse is she? I had a feeling she would be. But I didn't want to say anything because if I did alot of people may get mad at me for saying that.

-- Cammie (, August 17, 2000.

You seem a little upset, Cammie. Just a little. That comment may not have been in the best taste, but what about it makes Anthony a back-stabber?

-- Joanne (, August 17, 2000.

Because last May he went on "The Donnie and Marie Show" and said that he'll miss JM. Now he says to stay away. I guess I am a liitle upset. Sorry about that.

-- Cammie (, August 17, 2000.

No, I do not hate AE now. I can totally understand where he is coming from. GC and JM have gotten so much attention and exposure and they are NOT there anymore. He was just saying lets get on with it, lets move on, the past is past. I am sure he is sick of hearing about whether they will be coming back...its a moot point.

I loved Maura's new haircut (its more like it was when she first started NewsRadio) and I didn't notice until you mentioned it that she was in pink! Michael and Eriq were cute together now if they can just get some of that into their characters. It made it seem like their relationship would be "hitting new strides". Also sounded like Liz and Mark will remain together. There was no real info thought and was sad to see that Carter was no where to be seen...

-- amanda (, August 17, 2000.

All he has to say is "no comment" though. I mean when KM was asked by Martin Short on his show about JM turning the money down and leaving she said she couldn't comment on it. That's all he had to say. I want to apologize for saying those things about AE. I really don't hate him. I was just mad and jumped to conclusions before thinking about it. Sorry if I offended any AE fans.

-- Cammie (, August 17, 2000.

I can NOT believe that I missed this! I knew it was on, I watch ET almost every night, and I was going to tape the report, and then I forgot!!! I am sooo mad at myself for doing that! Anyway, I would have liked to have heard exactly how AE phrased his comment or the tone of voice he said it in. Maybe you just took a different way then he meant. I figured Abby would be the new nurse, she's a screw-up med- student, but I loved her in "Great Expectations." She'll never be Carol, but I think she'll make a compassionate nurse anyway.

Oh, and the back-stabbing AE comment was a little extreme and creepy. Maybe he said it in a really awful way, and I don't blame Cammie for expressing her opinion at all, if I'd heard the report maybe I'd agree, but back-stabbing?! All I can hear in my head is the beat of "Battleflag" all of a sudden, and I'm listening to a completely different style of music right now. Ew. That song still creeps me out some. Back-stabbing Anthony... Yuck. I hope he wasn't that bad!

Jessica! :-)

-- Jessica (, August 17, 2000.

Jessica- Now I have that song in my head. I totally forgot about that when I said that about AE. I must have been a little upset if I forgot that. I should have called him a traitor or something else. Sorry about that. Next time I'lll think before saying anything like that again. By the way, JLS, you were right about Abby having a big story line. Maura wouldn't say what it will be though.

-- Cammie (, August 17, 2000.

I made this comment on the previous thread, but I didn't know exactly what he said. Wow, that is pretty harsh...if I were an actor in the spotlight, I wouldn't make a comment like that. GC is pretty laid back, so I doubt he'll take this to heart, or JM, but I am pretty suprised he'd just bluntly say that. I guess if he's just sick and tired of hearing questions of whether they'd be back over and over again, he might have just been fed up and said that. I don't know, but I see nothing wrong with actor/esses returning to shows for special episodes...I went on about this forever in the previous thread, so I guess I should just say go read that!

Also, this is a SPOILER....

Cammie, about Abby's big storyline, someone posted awhile ago (actually, I thought it was you, guess not!) that Sally Field would play her astranged mother and that should be pretty big...about the nursing people think that they planned this all along, or that they actually do search around for fans opinions of what to do (or look on discussion boards!) with has been more than a little popular of an idea for Abby to go back to nursing, and they've never done that with a character, so it would be pretty interesting...I bet it will be frustrating for her to go back to being a nurse and not able to step up and do things she knows how to do if the situation arose...that could be very interesting! I am really looking forward to season 7. No Carter!? That sucks!

-- Elaine (, August 17, 2000.

I am a big dope. I am the equivalent of two dopes. I missed the whole damn thing. Can someone tell me how long the segment was and when it was shown in the Baltimore area so I can kick myself in the a** a few times??

PS-Abby in pick scrubs?!?!?! Weren't we all taking votes on who should be the next head nurse a few month ago???

-- S. Trelles (, August 18, 2000.

Elaine - What I typed above is exactly what came out of Anthony Edwards' mouth. As for Abby, I actually wasn't talking about the storyline with her mother. I don't know what's happening with that neither. Yet.

-- JLS (, August 18, 2000.

Well, that doesn't sound very nice now does it?

-- S. Trelles (, August 18, 2000.

Do you know how every weekend on "ET" they do the secrets of past and present shows where they say who hated who, the real reason so ans so left, ect..? They did that recently with "NYPD Blue". I wonder if they'll ever do one on "ER". It'll be interesting to see what the cast really thinks of each other now that AE said something not so nice. Eitheir that or the tabloids will say something about it.

-- Cammie (, August 18, 2000.

Cammie- you know the tabloids are going to say something about it. Remeber at the TV Guide Awards the cast of "Friends" accepted some kind of award and Matt L. said that they really are friends but Lisa acted like they really weren't Well about a week or two later "Star" magazine came out with a report that the cast of "Friends" aren't friends. So it won't suprise me if the tabloids do say something about it.

-- Andie (, August 18, 2000.

For those of you who did not see ET I just wanted to say that AE made his comments with a smile on his face and a laugh at the end. He did not say them in a mean-spirited or nasty way. He also made a comment that it was exciting to get into the energy that new cast members bring to the show. I think that all the attention that GC and JM gets must make it hard for those that remain to move on.

-- amanda (, August 18, 2000.

I just have a little note to add on. Wasn't Maura in Purple Scrubs, or was that just my odd tv? I'm pretty sure she waws wearing purple. I don't know if that changes anything though. And also, I like Maura's new haircut.

-- Amy (, August 18, 2000.

She was wearing purple scrubs. I thought it was just me also.

-- Cammie (, August 18, 2000.

Hey....about Anthony Edwards -- I went to the ER set a few weeks ago and met the guy. He is so nice and hospitable. He actually introduced himself to my mom and I and chit chatted a little. He was quite sweet. (paul mccrane and deezer d. did that too! hehe) anywayz, just for the record -- don't bash my boy Anthony! :-)

-- Katie (, August 19, 2000.

Actually you have a point. Edwards seems to say things that could be taken the wrong way. Like the "Barney on speed" comment. (Though I thought that was funny..) Maybe we're just blowing this out of proportion.
