** When Abby reports to Mark that she witnessed Carter injecting himself with pain medication, Mark calls Carter into the lounge with himself, Kerry--and Abby. There's no way that the person making such a complaint would be present when the person in question is being confronted--it puts them at great personal/professional risk. If Carter had been so inclined, he could have given her a poor evaluation as payback.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Following his departure, Doug was replaced with ''three'' people--Cleo (a skilled and dedicated pediatrician), Luka (brooding hunk with a troubled past and a yearning for Carol--and a resemblance to him), and Dave (brash, impulsive, problems with authority). As the other original cast members left, others characters were often introduced in either the abrasive go-getter mold, or the plucky NaiveNewcomer.
** Except for Carter, one of the only characters to be in every season (even if he's only mentioned in passing.) The others being minor characters that never receive main cast billing.

** In Season 7, Kerry has Abby assigned to the ER, apparently without asking Abby's supervisor or even Abby herself. Aside from the fact that Kerry would have no authority to do this--as stated, such moves would be handled by the nursing supervisor--as an OB nurse, Abby would likely be out of her element in the ER. In fact, this had been a plot point earlier in the series, as management intentionally assigned senior nurses who nearing retirement to departments they were unfamiliar with, in the hopes that they'd screw up and get disciplined, so that they could be fired before maxing out their pensions.

* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: Subverted. An unsuspecting Benton walks in on Dr. Keaton and Carter snuggling in her office during their affair(a '''major''' no-no that could have gotten her instantly fired if found out); aside from surprise, he doesn't evince any reaction. But when he later asks Keaton about taking on another surgical fellowship (something she had earlier refused to allow him to do), she naturally assumes the worst.
-->'''Benton:''' Dr. Keaton, I came to see if you would reconsider reccomending me for another pediatric surgery fellowship.
-->'''Keaton:''' And what if I don't? Will you report my relationship with Dr. Carter?
-->'''Benton:''' ...You think I'm blackmailing you?
-->'''Keaton:''' Are you?
-->'''Benton:''' Dr. Keaton, if your reccomendation of me isn't based on my skills as a surgeon...then I don't ''want'' it.
