Near the final scene when Carter is shooting baskets with Gates, his tie is around his neck loose in the beginning of the scene but a few shots later the tie is gone. See more »
Dr. Cate Banfield:
Gates, is it my imagination, or is Dr. Carter, who is not on duty by the way, in Trauma One with a patient demonstrating IV placement to a college student.
Dr. Cate Banfield:
Never mind... Jerry, why is Dr. Carter performing medical procedures on our patients.
Uh... because he's a doctor.

Yes, it's true ER lost its flair years ago, but the show always still had something. It was always fun to watch. I was sorry to hear the show was ending, even though I knew it was for the best. To be honest, I was expecting some rather soap operaish ending, but never this. The end of ER was absolutely beautiful. The episode reminded us of everything that made ER so good: the drama, the suspense, the tension, the love. Sure there were the occasional moments we could have done without, a problem that has plagued the show in recent seasons, but overall it was very well executed. The last shot where the camera slowly pulls out while the theme music fades in was exactly how the show should have ended. Ending the show with the message that life goes on, the characters live on, doing what they've always done, but giving us, the viewer, a chance to say goodbye. ER was undoubtedly the greatest medical drama ever made. Quite simply, it was one of the best dramas ever. It had its bumpy spots, but this show was special. And we will never, ever forget it.
