It was our first visit there and we just wanted to see what was going on........so if you ever see an episode of the show with a middle-aged woman and an adolescent in matching muu-muus being hustled down the sidewalk, that's us!

I actually had the opportunity to meet the ER TV series staff in person on one occasion. In real life, they actually tour around the country and educate the public advocating on behalf of "real" nurses. (Not just "RN's" either ) They are often found as speakers at nursing graduations.
They made it very clear they have absolutely no idea what they are doing. (Say maybe they really could be nurses huh? j/k)
I have to say they are really a nice bunch of people to meet when they are off the set.
He had no lines, hung and IV and pushed buttons. Made $35.00.

I was in a commercial that showed in the Twin Cities area during the late 90's.
I was working for a plastic surgery center at the time.
So many of my neighbors called about the treatment we were advertising.

It is filmed at the hospital where I work. Some of the staff have been on the show. Kinda funny when you are watching and see the day staff on the show. Usually just in passing. I however haven't been on TV.
