Despite being the birthplace of George Clooney's megastar fame, Keck maintains the show has proved it's more than its star power. "ER was never Doug Ross' anatomy," he tells "It was about the hospital and the cases. They were able to continue with a revolving door of really interesting characters...and the loss of these characters made for great story telling. It will be remembered for being NBC's last great 10 o'clock drama."

Rudolph shares what Steven Spielberg (a producer and co-creator of the show) thought was his favorite moment: "It was the Rosemary Clooney episode with her singing show tunes in the ER as a patient suffering from Alzheimer's."

The series finale of ER airs tonight at 8/7c on NBC.
