[S3E18] A Shot Through The Heart
At school the next day, Clark notices Chloe seems preoccupied, but she shrugs him off and asks if he has finished his Teacher of the Year interview with Mrs. Taylor. He admits that he hasn't received a call back and she tells him he should be a more aggressive journalist. Just then, Mrs. Taylor walks through the halls and Chloe urges Clark to give it another shot. He asks again, but the teacher says she is too busy. Chloe then asks if she has ten minutes before literature class. A green mist expels as she talks. Mrs. Taylor admits that she can't do it because she watched TV instead of preparing for class, so she has to make up a pop quiz. Clark and Chloe are stunned and amused at her honesty.
[S3E18] A Shot Through the Heart
NewsRadio had already aired its fourth season finale when star and former SNL funnyman Phil Hartman was tragically killed in his sleep by his wife Brynn Hartman, who shot him three times in the early hours of May 28, 1998 after an argument in which he'd threatened to leave her if she began using drugs again. She was intoxicated and had recently ingested cocaine prior to the murder. She later locked herself in the bedroom and shot herself in the mouth, killing herself as well. When the show returned for season five in September, his character Bill McNeal was revealed to have died of a heart attack, while the other characters reminisced about his life. Hartman's friend and former SNL colleague Jon Lovitz joined the cast the following episode and remained on the series throughout the season, which would prove to be the NBC critical darling's last.
By the time Nicholas Colasanto was cast as Coach Ernie Pantusso on the seminal NBC sitcom Cheers, he'd already been diagnosed with heart disease, which had been exacerbated by his alcoholism. By season three, his health had worsened and he'd noticeably lost weight, though he kept the severity of the matter a secret. Shortly after Christmas 1984, he was admitted to a hospital due to water in his lungs. After a two week stay, he was released in the week of January 28, 1985 and his doctor recommended that he not return to work. He would die of a heart attack in his home on February 12. Though he appeared in the season finale's cold open, through the use of discarded footage, his last full episode was filmed in late November 1984. (It aired on April 11, 1985). His character's absence throughout the rest of the season was either explained away through jokes or not acknowledged. When the show returned for season four, Coach's pen-pal Woody (played by Woody Harrelson) arrived for a visit only to learn Coach had died. As result, Ted Danson's Sam Malone offers Woody a job tending bar. When the show signed off after 11 seasons in 1993, Sam is seen straightening a portrait of Geronimo that once belonged to Colasanto, hanging in his dressing room.
After telling her that the kids couldn't handle one night without their mother, Kevin shot back, "We could have made it one night." He then turned to the nurse with a wink and a smile, "Hi." We don't know what it was, either, but it had to be the early stages of that kind of cocky swagger that has carried Kevin through life. And it was absolutely hilarious to see the youngest Kevin actor, Parker Bates, laying it on so thick

She tells him the stuff doesn't scare her, but he appears in a distance behind her and Melinda tells him to leave Tom alone and give her his best shot. She tries to guilt him into leaving Tom alone by saying he tried to kill himself to save Melinda from Paul, but Paul tells her that he didn't do it because of that, he did it because Paul made him do it.
