idk if anyone remembers watching the show “ER”
but there was this really repulsive character who spent, like, 4 million seasons sexually harassing alex kingston’s character.
and at first she was like, “oh sorry, I don’t date coworkers” except she was dating her coworker played by eriq la salle.
and then she was like, “oh sorry, I just don’t like older bald men” except that she was dating her older balding coworker played by anthony edwards at that point.
and the whole point of this entire character was to show up, be gross to alex kingston, get rejected, get humiliated, and then attempt to retaliate. that’s all he did.
and that was all he did for so long, even the writers apparently got the the point where they said “why the fuck do we keep bringing this shitsack back?” maybe the actor was a really good guy, idk. a lot of really bad characters are played by really nice people.
so anyway, they dropped a helicopter on the character.
it is one of the most memorable moments in television history to me, and i think i am alone in feeling that way.
Nah, we all loved it. Especially when his arm was severed by a helicopter blade a few seasons earlier, upping the irony of his death while removing his justification for being a smug shithead.
