Fall of 1994 was a big one for NBC, as the network debuted two shows that would go on to be massive hits: FRIENDS and ER.

But when the shows were in their freshman years, they had a memorable (but odd) crossover: ER’s George Clooney and Noah Wyle guest starred in the second part of FRIENDS’ February ’95 two-parter as doctors…but not their County General characters.

Of course, their characters got entangled with Monica and Rachel (who were attempting to date the doctors while also participating in insurance fraud, which may not have been their best idea), and quickly bolted when things got weird. But for an episode, FRIENDS and ER overlapped.

When Noah Wyle signed on to do the new CBS limited series THE RED LINE, the series took him back to a familiar location: Chicago, where he sporadically shot ER. (ER’s series production was split between the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank—which housed the hospital set—and select shots in Chicago.)

“That was really interesting to be back in Chicago 25 years later,” Wyle told reporters after the Television Critics Association panel for THE RED LINE. “The city has changed a lot. I’ve changed a lot.”
