More clips are seen and finally the closing minutes feature a series of bloopers and a musical montage that features the song "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" by the band Green Day, from their 1997 album Nimrod.

NOTE: When originally shown, both parts of this episode were shown in a 45 min time slot. When this episode was rerun on 9 May, the missing fifteen minutes of footage was restored, so future airings in syndication will feature the "whole" episode, less the 1 minute from each part that will be removed to allow for extra commercials. At least now some of the clip sequences make more sense, from some of the net postings I've seen. My cable was out the night the rerun, so I have yet to see this.
Of course we have to ask the question, why didn't NBC just show this in its complete form the first time? We are talking about a television network, so we can't use logic. When they reran The Finale the following week, they allowed their schedule to over run. Was it that important that the season finale of ER start at 10 o'clock eastern? These are of course, rhetorical questions.
