20 Years Later, Noah Wyle Can Still Recite His First "E.R." Monologue From Memory

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | July 25, 2013 | Comments ()


This is the best party trick ever. And it’s not like it’s three-lines from a script. It’s like two paragraphs of medical jargon, much of which sounds completely made up. I expected a cute video, but honestly, this is just goddamn impressive. I can’t remember all the lyrics to “Wanted Dead or Alive” from 20 years ago, and Wylie remembers this.

I bet Wyle is terrible at pub trivia. How can you remember old pop-culture miscellania when you’ve got that monologue occupying so much space in your brain?

  • So, two things. You can sense his sadness that his career has been on a steady downward trajectory. If that's worth remembering, then I'm sad for you too. Second, I do believe he's wearing a pinky ring. Now we're all sad.

    Just furthering my continued love of Noah Wylie (and no matter how horrible they are I will still watch The Librarian movies every time they're aired). Now I have to go relive the pain of losing ER.

  • Three_nineteen

    I have never seen Falling Skies, but damned if I haven't see all The Librarian movies multiple times.

  • Always loved John Carter. Him and Green were my favorite characters. And his relationship with Benton was great tv.

    Awww! *heart melts*

  • Bert_McGurt

    Nice hat you got there, Dr. Goose.

  • AudioSuede

    I never even watched E.R., but that's amazing.

  • About the pub trivia: it's true - ever since memorising the Animaniacs Presidents Song I've had trouble fitting anything else into that nut-brain of mine.
    I've had to evict Jackson, Taft and McKinley just to remember my brother's name.

    Brain singing the parts of the brain was partly responsible for my A in psych

  • Fabius_Maximus

    "You got to squeeze the buzzer, honey. Don't jerk it."

  • Fredo

    "Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana and Columbus is the capital of Ohio..." is as much as I dared remember of the Animaniacs State Capitals song in order to keep my last year of Bachelor's degree in my head.

  • Thinking about it now, I did learn that song not that long before I dropped out of my Astrophysics degree...

    20-years-ago self: SWOON

  • Naye

    Thumbs up, even though 20 years ago I'm sure I just tripped over my baby legs.

  • fluff_fluff

    I mean, it was definitely prepubescent. Dr. Carter is the first famous person I remember going "OH YEAH WHO IS THAT" about.

  • Sirilicious

    They mostly blend together, so i don't know which one was first (i am that old): Spock, Starbuck, Buck Rogers, MacGyver (Wait, that was much later?)...

    I had excellent taste.

  • llp

    Yes, Starbuck. And then Face afterwards. Before Dirk Benedict went a bit crazy.

  • Sirilicious

    Yeah, i guess Face more (a lot) than Starbuck. Thanks for the correction. :o)

  • llp

    That's a good comment diversion, right there. My first person was Shaun Cassidy in The Hardy Boys. Because I am old.

  • llp

    That is very insightful, mejumaxuturi. Two hands, you say?

  • SCG

    Holy shit, me too!!! The first album I ever bought also.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Make it so!

  • llp

    Paging Mrs. Julien!

  • Mrs. Julien

    Got it! (If no one bests me to it.) Mine's is really good, too.)

  • Parker Stevenson. Never did go for blondes.

  • llp

    Although, my second pick would maybe be John Schneider from The Dukes of Hazzard. So, maybe there is more blonde appreciation in me than I think.

  • llp

    I don't usually go for blondes either, but that smile.
