Welcome to the Luby thread. This thread is dedicated to our favorite couple: Luka and Abby, and to the wonderful actors who portray them: Goran Višnjić and Maura Tierney. As the rules of the board ask, no bashing here. If you don’t like Luka and Abby, hit the road, Jack. If you do, welcome aboard and don’t be shy! We don’t bite… hard, and our vaccines are up to date :P

“The inspired notion of hooking up Abby Lockhart, the full-time nurse, on-again-off-again med student, with Luka Kovac, the Croatian physician, on “E.R.” created perhaps the most fascinating relationship on prime-time TV.”
The New York Times, October 2001[/URL]

“It was a seasonlong masochist’s glut of an affair, and in the hands of the remarkable Maura Tierney and Goran Visnjic it was – and continues to be, in the stormy aftermath of Abby and Luka’s breakup this season – singularly compelling.”
The New York Times, October 2001[/URL]

“And we know that, as the new Doug and Carol, [Abby] and Kovac are meant to be together.”
Guardian Unlimited, June 2002

TV Guide, February 2006

“It was the chemistry between Goran and Maura cause it felt like a real relationship between two people who were both damaged and looking for happiness.”
David Zabel, ER Executive Producer, 21 September 2006

“If there is one reason viewers stay loyal to “ER”… it is Luka Kovac and Abby Lockhart.”

“The characters’ relationship got more interesting when they were friends, which made the romantic relationship possible again.”
Maura Tierney on Luka and Abby’s breakup and getting back together, Live Blog[/URL], 3 May 2007

“The reason the Luka/Abby relationship is more successful dramatically and emotionally is because the two characters share in common the fact that they both have overcome damaged pasts. They found happiness together despite those pasts.”
David Zabel, ER Executive Producer, Live Blog[/URL], 3 May 2007

Lubies, Tramps and Thieves by Dawn

Dawn was born in the wagon of a travelling show
Caro would dance for the money they’d throw
And Aly would do whatever she could
Preach a little Luka
Sell a couple bottles of doctor good

Lubies, tramps and thieves
We’d hear it from the people in the town, they’d call us
Lubies, tramps and thieves
And every night the men would come around and lay their money down

love Luka and Abby: Because love knows no reasons love
