* One could argue that Archie's [[CharacterDevelopment development]] into a [[TookALevelInBadass seriously competetent professional]] qualifies. When Carter tells him to "set the tone" as he departs in Season 11 (similar to how Greene told him to do so), Morris is confused by the sentiment, leading Carter to shake his head and reply, "Never mind", as if to retract on his passing the torch, demonstrating the immaturity of Archie's character at this point. However, after getting taken hostage in Season 14 and seeing his taker (who he had bonded with over the course of the episode) get shot dead by a sniper, Morris makes an attempt to ground himself in reality. The death of his best friend, Greg Pratt, further forces him to confront life's harsh realities, and by the end, he's become one of the most competent doctors in the ER (and maintained a steady relationship with his police officer girlfriend). When Carter makes is return in Season 15, [[CallBack he's quick to notice the shift in personality]]:

* Mark is treating a patient who has revoked her DNR order. Weaver, of course, objects and tries to take control of the situation. First by suggesting that Mark's in no condition to handle the case because of his mother's recent death, then by threatening to take over the patient's care, and finally by nagging him endlessly as he tries to revive the woman. A fed-up Mark finally grows a pair and yells at her [[BigShutUp "SHUT UP, Kerry or GET OUT!"]] And she promptly shuts up.

* Doug and Carol's reunion at the end of Season 6. So spectacular that it garnered several immediate imitators (similar scenarios for character departures on ''Series/GeneralHospital'' and ''Series/{{CSI}}''), and ''sixteen'' years later, when word got out that Micheal Weatherly would be departing ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', fans immediately began clamoring for producers to, "bring back Cote de Pablo (Ziva) so that they can write them off like Doug and Carol."

* Weaver has fired incompetent resident Dave Malucci. Ostensibly for having sex with a paramedic while on duty, but mostly to ensure that he takes the blame for the death of a patient (conveniently ignoring her own failure to supervise him). After all of Dave's pleas leave Weaver completely unmoved,he proceeds to deliver an ''epic'' TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Starting with calling her a "sad, cold-hearted bitch", telling her that "nobody here likes you", and capping it off by declaring that she has nothing in her life aside from her job. It's marred by his unfortunate use of a homophobic slur at the very end, but other than that it was thrilling to see Weaver finally get a dose of the public humiliation she had so frequently doled out to the staff for 6 years. On the other hand, to viewers more sympathetic to Weaver, watching her stoically take every bit of petty, unprofessional abuse Malucci could dish out and still tossing his mediocre ass out on the street was pretty damn satisfying.

* The last few minutes of the series finale. Specifically, the staff evaluating the victims of an industrial accident, combined with the full theme music, and the pullback shot of the hospital exterior. It was really a shining example of what ER did best.
* Any of the long, frantic "runner" scenes are a CMOA for the cast and crew.
