Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Despite appearing on Sesame Street as a child, she does not consider herself a child actress, instead likening the experience to paid day care.
  • Kim was offered a contract renewal after season eight, but she declined. She and Shonda agreed it was time to give Teddy a much needed vacation.
  • When Kim Raver left the show, she took Teddy's scrub cap home with her. It's now hanging above her desk.
