she liked Imaginary Men best of all

Paging Dr. Ross


A friend recently had an Emergency Room experience that she said made her “…wish George Clooney greeted me in the ER”.

Honey, I’ve been saying that for over a decade now. I think the entire Health Care mess could be solved easily by this doing your intake and triage:

My Doug Ross Love is legendary in its insanity. Did I own a pair of scrubs? Oh yes. Did I tape the entire Doug/Carol saga and have a multi-video collection of it? Of course. Did I serve a lobster dinner before their ER return last year to celebrate the total awesomeness of them gracing my screen together once again? Hell yeah!

The only thing that comes close to my Doug Ross Love is my Doug Ross/Carol Hathaway Love. Fave TV Couple EVER. No contest. I like to pretend they’re actually off living in Seattle with their twins – and I am not even the only person I know who hopes that a RL Clooney/Margulies pairing could one day actually occur. Their chemistry is that good (and we’re that nuts.)

I really can’t name a fave D/C moment because I love them all (and YT doesn’t have many to share) but this one always stands out to me. Clooney plays this so perfectly, you can actually see his heart breaking and his attempt to save face (that little intake of breath at 1:01 as if she’s literally punched him in the gut just kills me. Still.) Plus it had that drug rep-girlfriend Linda who told Carol: Do you believe in soulmates? That there’s one perfect person out there for you? Because for Doug, that person is you

  1. Thanks for this 🙂

  2. Do you remember that adorable moment during the Golden Globes this year, when Juliana Margulies planted a big wet one on Clooney on the way to the stage to accept her Best Actress award for The Good Wife? I know she’s married in real life, but it didn’t stop me from squealing like a little girl, when it happened.

    Love your ER-era Clooney pic. I can’t believe how young he looks! With some actors, you never notice that they are actually aging, until you see old pics of them. Fortunately for Clooney, he ages like a fine wine, instead of moldy cheese . . .
