In "Random Acts" , someone finds a notebook under
the admit desk that contains a story written like a sleazy
romance novel depiction of the ER staffers` lives. Its
characters are thinly-veiled caricatures of the folks who work in
the ER - nurse "Carly Halloran" (Carol Hathaway), attending "Martin
Bean" (Mark Greene) and so on. To write such a story, someone
must know the real ER staffers personally, and thus it must have
been one of them, but nobody owned up to being the author.
Several characters on the show decided that Carol must
have been the one to write it, but Carol steadfastly denied it.
It`s possible that this mystery will be cleared up at some point
in the show`s fourth season, and it`s also possible that we`ll never
know who wrote it.
**SPOILER INFO**: In a recent interview, Laura Innes admitted that Kerry
Weaver *did* write the book. The interview is available at The Unofficial
