The Time Quentin Tarantino Directed An Episode Of ER

Now that Quentin Tarantino is considered part of the Hollywood elite it's hard to imagine him using his movie directing skills to create content for television.

But surprisingly Tarantino directed an episode of ER in 1995, two months after winning the Best Screenplay Oscar for Pulp Fiction, episode 24 of season one entitled "Motherhood".

Quentin was brought into the Emergency Room by George Clooney, who was set to star in the Tarantino/Rodriguez film From Dusk Til Dawn, and a particularly violent script by Lydia Woodward was chosen to keep the episode nice and Tarantino-y.

Tarantino was paid $30,000 for the episode, and he was hoping to come back as a recurring episode, but alas Quentin would steer clear of television for ten years until returning in 2005 to direct an episode of CSI.
