* ShipSinking: Peter and Jeannie fall in love over the course of the first season, beginning an affair as it ends. However, she soon ends it, declaring that she's not ready to end her marriage. She resurfaces a few episodes after that, having left her husband after all, but there's too much tension and anger for any talk of resuming their relationship. The final nail in the coffin is when he's a completely unsympathetic and unsupportive jerk to her over her HIV status.

* ImprobableHairstyle: A lot of the long-haired women were often seen wearing their hair loose. Most female medical professionals won't do this--aside from the fact that hair isn't sterile and could therefore contaminate an open wound, it could also get in the way, be grabbed onto, or get soiled by body fluids.

** At the end of Season 13, Ray is hit by a truck and loses both of his legs. He reappears in Season 15, having recovered, left Emergency Medicine, and now specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, fully capable and mobile thanks to state-of-the-art prosthetics, and truly enjoying his new specialty. He outright says that seeing how accomplished he is gives hope to the disabled military personnel he often works with.

*** In fact, even the pilot itself has bookends because it starts ''and'' finishes with Mark being awakened by Lydia.


Added DiffLines:

** Michael Crichton was a physician. Many of the events of the pilot episode were based off his experiences, particularly the bit where Mark leaves a "wake up" note on an exam room door.
