Cleo: Don't treat my patients unless I ask you to.
Malachi: Why? I rectified the situation.
Cleo: No, anyone could've shoved it back in.
Malachi: Rectified. (chuckling) Get it?
Cleo: I was waiting for a surgical consult.
Malachi: Oh, come on, you were in there gabbing with your boyfriend.
Kerry: (coming up) Is there a problem Dr. Malachi?
Malachi: Ah, yes, actually, I never knew someone so protective over someone else's butthole.
Cleo: Just stay away from my patients.

Carter: Yeah, please. (she puts on gloves and there's silence)
Abby: (breaking the silence) Luka and I broke up a few days ago.
Carter: (surprised) Uh, why?
Abby: I think both of us realized the relationship wasn't working a long time ago and neither of us wanted to be the one that called it.
Carter: So it was imitable?
Abby: (smiling) No, I wouldn't say that.
Carter: Sorry. (gives a big sigh) Is that why you're avoiding him?
Abby: Partly. I had to go over to his place this morning because I thought . . . (Haleh pops in)

Weaver: Doctors are human, we make mistakes.
Romano: Please don't, Kerry, if this guy had been properly diagnosed and sent straight to the OR without TWK he'd still be flipping burgers at McDonalds.
Weaver: Markens is difficult to detect, the residents have never heard of-
Romano: (interrupting) Which is why we have attendings.
Weaver: Yeah, well, I can't be everywhere at every moment.
Romano: Wrong answer. As we speak someone's writing a feature story on this screw-up and the rise of preventable deaths so you need to come up with a better excuse than doctors are human or find yourself a good old-fashioned scapegoat. (Weaver goes towards the elevator just as it opens and Malachi's crowd comes out)
Malachi: Good breath sounds.
Paramedic: Very cool.
Malachi: Who's your dad?

Carter: She's doing very well, but it's a good thing you found her when you did. Would you like to see her?
Marissa: This is my sister Carmine. (Carmine waves)
Marissa: Doctor, can you show my sister the mark on her chest?
Carter: The birthmark? (she nods) Oh, yeah. (they go over to the baby who has a heart-shaped birthmark on her chest, the women start speaking to each other in another language excitedly)
Marissa: Thank you, thank you. (they all leave)
Carter: (to Chuny) Okay, did I miss something? (Chuny laughs)
Chuny: She thinks the birthmark is the sign of the Virgin Mary.
Chen: It does look like a bleeding heart. (Carter laughs and starts to head out, Chen follows) Hey, John, thanks for the help.
Chen: No, no, really.
Carter: Anytime. (she pats him on the back and leaves, Abby walks up)
Abby: Hey, can I get you a cane?
Carter: I've heard that women find helplessness charming.
Abby: In puppies, maybe.
Carter: You still abading Luka?
Abby: No, well, yeah. (she puts her hands up in frustration) It's complicated.
Carter: Most breakups are.
Abby: (pointing to an empty bed) Hey, sit down. (he sits down and takes his shoe off, she puts gloves on and he shines a light on his foot) Well, not that way. This morning I had to go over to
his place to get one of my sweaters and I smashed his fish tank.

Carter: (hurt) Ow!
Abby: Want some lydacane?
Carter: No. Just do it. (he braces himself on the side of the bed, Abby pulls a tiny piece of glass out of his foot)
Abby: That's one big piece of glass.
Carter: You really should replace it otherwise he's going to think you're a little . . . vindictive.
Abby: It wasn't like that.
Carter: Oh, I know.
Abby: I'm getting him another one.
Carter: I think that's a great idea.
Abby: I just need some help. (Carter looks up at her) Getting into his apartment. (Carter laughs)
Carter: Don't even.
Abby: Come on. I can't lift it up by myself. We could get there, we could replace it before he gets home.
Carter: You could tell Luka what happened. (he gets up) The two of you could fix it together.
Abby: Now I'll remind you, I just removed a thorn from your paw.
Chen: (comes up) John! Did you discharge Ravitz?
Carter: Alright, I'll think about it.
Abby: I owe you one.
Chen: 22 year old woman with chest pain, she was taking birth control pills?
Carter: Yeah, yeah, why?
Chen: Well, Weaver took her from me.
Chen: She gave her to you.
Carter: Maybe she thought you were swamped.
Chen: Yeah. More like incompetent.
Carter: (laughing) She made you chief resident, you know, you're the chosen one.
Chen: Yeah, by default.

Rachel: I called her, she started freaking out. I told you all she ever cares about is her stupid job. She says she's sending me to summer school!
Elizabeth: Call if you need me okay? (Mark nods)
Rachel: I swear I'm adopted.
Mark: What did she say?
Rachel: She just started yelling at me, she hates me. She's such a bitch.

Malachi: Are you gonna talk to her?
Mr. Tanzi: Dr. Greene, my wife's gone.
Mr. Tanzi: I went to call our son, when I got back, she was gone!
Mark: Maybe one of the nurses took her to the bathroom.
Mr. Tanzi: But her walker's gone too. (they walk down the hall, Rachel and Malachi follow)
Mark: Well, she couldn’t have gotten far.
Mr. Tanzi: Well, the last time she wandered off like this, she nearly got hit by a car.
Mark: Randi, can you call security and let them know Mr. Tanzi's wife might be missing.
Mark: We'll find her.
Rachel: Dad, I really want to stay here with you.
Mark: Rachel, not now.
Malachi: So you'll talk to her?
Mark: You talk to her, she didn't fire me.
Scene-Abby walks up to Carter
Abby: You ready?
Carter: One more patient.
Abby: Okay, I'll be in the car, I don't want Luka to see us.
Carter: Are we going to be wearing ski masks? (Carter goes into the baby's room, people are gathered everywhere, to nurse) She drop her stats?
Nurse: Sinus tech. Heart rate's 180.
Carter: She dehydrated?
Chen: Mmm, defiantly not dry, she's making good urine.
Carter: Spike a fever?
Chen: Temp is 98.4, Chuny, I need that hemoglobyn.
Chuny: It's coming.
Carter: Last one's 12.4, she's not anemic, (to baby) you're not anemic are you? Did you uh, check the tox screen?
Chen: (nodding) Mmm, negative.
Carter: Hopefully she's just worn out from performing all those miracles. (Mrs. Tanzi watches)
Chuny: Second hemoque's 8.4. (this means something and they understand why she's sick)
Chen: I knew she was looking pale.
Carter: Well, that’s too motive for delusional might be amolluses.
Chen: Try blood loss. I'll check a stoicha.
Weaver: (to Mrs. Tanzi) What are you doing out of bed, dear?
Mrs. Tanzi: The baby was crying.
Weaver: Well, lets get you back to your room, alright? (a nurse takes her back)
Chen: Send off a retict count, hemoglobyn, combs, direct and indirect bellyribbon I want to transfuse 2 CC's (Kerry come and watches, Carter notices) per kil per hour over the next five hours.
Carter: (trying to make her look good) Good pickup Deb, I would've never thought to repeat the blood count so soon. I think the cardio will resolve the transfusion.
Weaver: Baby's anemic, they get blood, it's not exactly rocket science. (Weaver leaves, Chen gives Carter a look)
Chen: (sarcastically) Thanks, Carter, that was great.
Scene-Mrs. Tanzi's room, Mark comes in
Mark: Where was she?
Weaver: Wandering the halls apparently.
Mark: I was detained by Malachi who seems to think he's out of a job.
Weaver: he is.
Mrs. Tanzi: The baby was crying.
Mr. Tanzi: What happened? Why is she so much better?
Mark: Her appendix probably burst. Once the pressures relieved the pain temporarily goes away.
Mr. Tanzi: For how long?
Mark: Within 24 hours paratenetis will take over causing high fevers and sever abdominal pain.
Mrs. Tanzi: (to her husband) Thank you for taking care of me Lawrence. (he touches her cheek with his hand)
Mark: Now Malachi is not the first doctor to get caught performing a unauthorized physical in the hospital.
Mr. Tanzi: She knows I've been taking care of her.
Weaver: (to Mr. Tanzi) Excuse me?
Mr. Tanzi: It's been two years since she said my name, is it to late to perform the surgery?
Mark: She's perforated, we'd have to do an open procedure which would take much longer to heal.
Mr. Tanzi: I want you to operate.
Mark: Mr. Tanzi, your wife's moment of lucidity was probably a fluke.
Mr. Tanzi: The surgeon said it's a simple operation.
Weaver: Mr. Tanzi, why don't you stay down here with your wife and we'll have the surgeon come down and speak to you alright?
Mr. Tanzi: She deserves to have everything done for her.
Weaver: She will. (Weaver leaves and goes to the bench where Mark is looking at charts) What are you doing?
Mark: His wife's end stage dementia, I'm trying to help both of them.
Weaver: Well, apparent you're not.
Mark: You want this one too? She's yours, in fact, why don't you take all the patients, seeing as you're firing all the doctors.
Weaver: He had it coming.
Mark: For what?
Weaver: Uh, ah, . . . (struggles for the word) Unacceptable behavior, insubordination, I mean, he has no respect for anything.
Mark: So what? Reprimand him.
Weaver: I am tired of his attitude.
Mark: You can't get rid of him just because the two of you don't get along. Hell, if that were the case you'd have to fire all of us. (he leaves)
Weaver: (yelling after him) You know, I'm not going to justify my point of view to you. (Mark sees Jenn)
Jenn: Where is she?
Mark: Good to see you too, Jenn. (he leads her off to see Rachel)

Carter: That's it. Mission aborted.
Abby: Wait, hold it, wait (she motions him over to the side of the building) he sleeps with the window open.
Carter: (still holding the big fish tank) Wouldn't it make more sense to just leave this out front?
Abby: What? So somebody could steal it?
Carter: Who steals a fish tank? (they stand it on it's side) Come to think of it, who breaks a fish tank?
Abby: I told you, it was an accident. (Carter groans) That's it, okay, that's Luka's. (points to a window not far up) Could you give me a boost up?
Abby: Just bend over.
Carter: Could you at least buy me dinner first? (Abby giggles, he bends over) I've got a bad back, you know.
Abby: What are you implying?
Carter: What if somebody sees us?
Abby: Alright, just relax, Opy. Are you ready?

Jenn: (to Mark) I just made partner. (to Rachel) Excuse me for working so hard so I can put a roof over your head.
Mark: You made partner?

Rachel: Tired of being a mother is more like it.
Jenn: Can you blame me?

Abby: Think we can resuscitate it?
Carter: I think he's been down too long.
Abby: Think we should flush him? (pushes the net in Carter's direction)
Carter: Think Luka would miss him? (he pushes it back)
Abby: Maybe he'd think one of the other fish ate it. (she pushes the net back)
Carter: A piranha? (he takes the net) Uh, fine.
Abby: I was never any good with pets. (he puts the dead fish in the new tank, Abby starts wiping the glass) I used to like those little turtles you could get at the markets.
Carter: Don't they carry salmonella?
Abby: I don't know. They didn't live long, especially if you painted them with nail polish.
Carter: Can we get out of here now?
Abby: yeah, I just have to wipe the place down for prints. (Carter rolls his eyes, they both go to move the old fish tank when the door buzzer goes) Should I get it?

Chen: Oh, crips up but she needs another four per kilo.
Mark: (moving equipment) Okay, I need to take her for a second.
Chen: What? Take her where?
Mark: Just next door.
Chen: Oh, Dr. Greene, she needs more paxil. (they wheel the baby next door)
Peter: Send off another CBC from pre-op and I want plasma in the OR.
Mark: Peter wait.
Peter: Her pressure's borderline I gotta take her up.
Chen: Dr. Greene, I need to put her back on the monitors.
Mark: Anna, this is your baby.
Anna: I don't have any children.
Mark: You tied off her umbilical cord with your own shoelace.
Chen: (quietly) We need to finish off that transfusion.
Mark: You left her at the church cause you wanted her to be safe.
Anna: I can't have a baby.
Mark: But you did.
Anna: Is she okay?
Mark: She's very sick, but we're helping her now.

Elizabeth: I need to irrigate with 2 liters.
Nurse: I've only got 500 cc's on the field.
Elizabeth: Then get us some more.
Nurse: Coming right up. (she leaves)
Dr. Babcock: Maybe this is God's way of saying her meters . . . out. If I ever get to this point I sure as hell don't want a trip to the OR.

Mark: Things didn't go quite as planned.
Elizabeth: How's that?
Mark: As is how do you feel about Rachel staying with us for a while?
Elizabeth: Like for the rest of the summer?
Mark: Maybe. Maybe longer. (Elizabeth looks up at him) Could be handy having a live-in babysitter and I'm sure she'd help around the house.
Elizabeth: She’s your daughter, Mark. Of course she's welcome to live with us. The fact that she's still here suggests you already said she could.
Mark: You were in surgery.

Fire-eater: Usually I smear my stausche with Vaseline but today I forgot so I used hair-gel instead. (Malachi and Malik smile) I guess it's flammable.
Malachi: I guess so. Okay, let's shave off the rest of the moustache and debree the skin.
Fire-eater: You can't shave my moustache. (Weaver sees Malachi still at the hospital and starts to walk over)It's my trademark.
Malachi: Dude, it's half gone.

Malik: He's out.
Weaver: Then give it to someone else.
Malachi: Hey, hey, chief I know you're pissed but come on, let's be real about this if you really wanted to axe me you'd have to go through the residency review committee and then the disciplinary committee and they'd want to council me. The best you're going to get is a suspension.
Weaver: You have five letters in your file for unprofessional behavior.
Malachi: Me and every other doctor here.
Weaver: You have been counseled each time, you have failed two rotations. Yes, there will be a meeting of the residency review committee and yes, they will once again offer you counseling but I'm telling you right now you will never work in this ER again.
Malachi: What the hell's your problem?
Weaver: You, Malachi, you're my problem.
Malachi: Why? Because I don't kiss your ass. Yeah, I like to have fun sometimes but I'm a damn good doctor. I have had half a dozen great saves tonight.
Weaver: Being a great doctor is more than just great saves.
Malachi: Oh, really, what I need to adopt your cheery manner and sparkling bedside manner*? This isn't about my performance is it? Or about my rotations? You just don't like me.
Weaver: (turns around) You're right, I don't like you. You have no respect for me, your co-workers, this hospital, anything. You like to think you have this whole cowboy approach to medicine. (Mark turns to watch) But the truth is you don't have the goods to back it up so you make mistakes. Mistakes that kill people.
Malachi: I need this job, you can't fire me, I have a kid to support.
Weaver: Since when? You never said anything about being a father.
Malachi: Did you ever ask? You don't know a damn thing about me.
Weaver: Well, I know you're fired.
Malachi: You're a sad, cold-hearted bitch.
Weaver: Somebody call security.
Malachi: You may not like me but nobody her likes you.
Weaver: Get out!
Malachi: You wanna know why this stupid ER's so damn important to you lady? Do you know why? Cause it's the only thing you've got in your life. Nazi dyke. (he throws down his stethoscope and she flinches, he leave)
