nearly cried, prayed for the orphan kids and could't sleep due to nightmares.

I cried so hard that when I stopped the tape, after taping the show, I went up stairs to to put a lable on it and I fell down the stairs. I could not take in what had just happened to my two fave people on the show.That night I could not get the image of Lucy's face just as the sheet is pulled over her.
Romono to Kerry:"The nurses can do that." Kerry to Romono:"I know."

Christi -Amen! My 2 favorite people as well. This was quite simply the most moving thing I've EVER seen- on the big or small screen.I knew for almost a month that Lucy was being killed and I STILL felt like a freight train had slammed into my chest!The core of the emotion happened with Lucy's few 'alive' scenes. The fact that she knew how serious her condition was, and just those 'I'm going to die, I know it" looks were absolutely heartbreaking.And Greene's reaction before the end scene? Where he seems to allow himself one last moment of grief before he HAS to return to saving other folks' lives? Priceless. Even Romano shows emotion -wow.
Nice mention of the end scene -left me cold.
I've watched this 4 times already -and it still moves me as much as the first. Ultimate compliment here -I nearly forgot I was watching a fictional drama, the emotional element was so realistic.

"Thank you." -Lucy Knight.
When I heard that line, goodbye to composure. Kellie Martin talks with her eyes, and wrote a book during that episode. When she mouthed "P. E." I could see the fear and realization. Seriously, people, I'm still having these dreams about that episode. Um, producers...how about a nice angelic appearance? I'm desperate here! :) The night All in the Family aired, I basically cried for oh...four hours? I'm pathetic, aren't I? Oh, I LOVED Romano's reaction. Hmm, maybe Romano can talk to Elizabeth and kinda give us an idea that he has emotions too? Alex Kingston's look-Robert, give up. She's dead, and I hate it too, but we can't do anything about it now. So pick up that table and one of us better call it, there's nothing more to do--I know she didn't actually say anything aloud. Maybe something with Luka, remembering that scene (Domino Heart?) where Lucy is sitting outside after some patient of hers died, and Luke comes out and starts talking to her "Well Dr. Kovac, I try to save one life a day, but today, I didn't" "Lucy, the day isn't over" Trauma pulls up. "There's today's life." Some weird problem. "Sounds difficult." "I'll talk you through it." I loved that scene, though I didn't know why. Lucy was so full of hope, joy, promise (I'm not going to go on)

Did I cry? Oh Yeah! It didn't hit me until the scene in Doc Magoo's. That just broke my heart and for the rest of "All in the Family" I was a basketcase. That scene just brought back so many memories of Lucy and Carter. (Yes, I am a Lucy/Carter fanatic) To have Chuny be the one to tell the group, after she was the one who found Lucy and Carter fooling around in Exam 6 and the sad song (from Lucy's first episode), all of that scene was just so well done. My poor cats just looked at me like I was crazy. It's amazing how attached we get to these characters on a t.v. show. I'll never forget this February sweeps!

Oh yah did I cry. I am a Lucy/Carter fanatic. I knew she was going off the show and I still cried. I must have watched it 5 times and I cry even harder each time I see it. Its so sad when you see reruns of the show!
-- Stacey Kushner (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 11, 2000.
Yes, I cried like a baby. I had heard about this episode for a while, and kind of prepared myself for it. I wasn't expecting it to be so heartwrenching. Does anyone know the name of the song that was playing while they were having the party?
-- Jillian Chartier (email@example.com), March 13, 2000.
Can't remember the SONG, (although I can find out at the ER ep guide page) , but it's by the lo fideility all-stars.
-- vince f smith (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 24, 2000.
Anyone who did not cry is all dead inside. I really liked Lucy. I cryed soo hard I was sad about this days, no weeks no i think even months over this That picture of Lucy bloody and when they shocked her, When Romano showed that indeeded he was human and when Carter asked "Lucy's dead isn't she" aLL that made me soo sad i gota go i thinkk i am gonna cry!

I haven't been able to watch the show for quite a long time due to studies, however, I watched it last Thursday (we are a bit behind in Oz) and I must confess I cried both when the parents of the two children died and then again at the end when Carter saw Lucy aslo lying there with blood over her. This was a very moving and disturbing scene. All I can say is that from the introduction of ER a number of years ago, they have continually managed to deliver a meaningful and compelling program - not an easy task, but well done to all the people who bring it together. I am going to go back to taping it as I don't want to miss a thing!
-- Janine (firstname.lastname@example.org), May 06, 2000.
It was sooooo sad, I almost cried. In the episode before, when Carter saw Lucy lying there, the look on his face was just /soooo/ heartbreaking.
-- Dawn (Dawine@home.com), May 10, 2000.
That was so sad, the scenes where Lucy was awake and they got a shot of her face, you could just tell she knew she was gonna die. When Carter asked whoever it was about Lucy and that look that he got it was just an "i'm so sorry we couldn't do anything else. And when Lucy was told her spleam had been removed and she said "thank you" she just seemed to know how much longer it may have possibly been of any use to her. When Romano had that little temper tantrum it was just like oh my, he has feelings for someone other then himself and his dog. The look on Carter's face when he saw Lucy lying in a puddle of blood it was enough to just turn a completly talkative person speechless. I mean, I knew Lucy was gonna die for weeks before the show, but it was like they just took your best friend out into the middle of the street and shot her. It was so realistic that you could totally forget you're watching this happen on TV and it's not someone you know, I felt I had gotten to know Lucy and when she was killed off it was like a close friend just died. It was soooooo sad.

Man I wos sooooo close. I woz freaked out and couldn't sleep and I woz really sad for dayz on end, I still can't believe it three months down the line.
