Trivia: Doug Ross frequently hung his head low, appearing ashamed or thoughtful or privately amused, depending on the scene. This wasn't just an element of the character: George Clooney had taken to writing his lines on papers, sheets, and other props.
Trivia: Every episode has the patient list by the nurse's station. On the patient list, different names are mentioned, like Marguiles or Tierney. They put these names there as a spoof of the show.
Trivia: The character of Haleh was supposed to appear in this episode but was written out, and with good reason. This episode picks up right where the previous season's finale left off, but the actress who plays Haleh had lost over 100 pounds over the summer hiatus.
Trivia: The first four episodes of the show all began the same way - with one of the doctors being awakened early in the morning from 'Exam 8' at the end of the hallway, in this order: Greene (Pilot), Lewis (Day One), Benton (Going Home), Carter (Hit and Run). Ross (George Clooney) was the only one of the original five who never slept in Exam 8.
