    • Erica: Everything that you've taught me, it's made me braver, somehow. Dr. Tom: It's time, Erica. Choose a door.

    • Rebecca: Here's the thing, Erica, we learn from each other because we've all been through the same thing with Dr. Tom. Erica: I'm-I'm sorry. Dr. … Tom? Rebecca: Yeah, we're all patients of his. He didn't tell you? Erica (stammers): Well, he is a doctor and … I mean, of course, he has other patients. That just … that goes without saying … So, you said that this is Phase Two - and how many phases are there? Dr. Tom: Three. Erica: And the third phase, it's … what … exactly? Adam: You really have no clue? (Erica looks hesitant) You become a doctor, Erica. That's Phase Three.

    • Erica: I become a doctor? Dr. Tom: Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves. No one here is becoming a doctor … anytime soon. This is the next phase of your journey as a patient. Darryl: We do though, you know, we do get to "practice" on each other - instead of torturing real patients.

    • Adam: You say you're excited? Erica: Yeah. Adam: I don't believe it … 'cause actually you look upset and defensive. And check out your arms, they're all … closed up. You look like you're hidin' somethin'. Erica: Well, I'm not hiding anything. I'm fine, I'm just … (stammers) a little bit nervous, maybe, but that's normal given the circumstances. Adam: Nerves, sure, yeah, but that's not what I mean. It's like you're telling us what you think we want to hear. Erica: It really just feels to me like you're picking on me. Adam: I'm not, Erica … and I'm not judgin' you either. I'm just asking you to be honest. Erica: And why would I lie? Adam: Well, being a hundred percent honest in a room full of strangers is really hard. Erica (hesitates and sighs): I don't really know what … you want me to say.

    • Erica: Dave likes men!? Men … they like Dave? Julianne: Yes, chicken, that's how "gay" works.

    Allusions (3)

    • Erica: Look, I'm not used to being dropped into the middle of a Tarantino film, okay? Complaining about being dropped into the middle of a "police chase", Erica alludes to the American director/screenwriter Quentin Tarantino - known for his action-thriller films and their outbursts of stylish and kinetic violence.

    • Dealer: Who are you? Shaft? Referring to Dr. Tom's whole "badass" attitude and brown ensemble (topped by a long leather coat and feathered fedora), the dealer alludes to the often leather-clad character Richard Roundtree played in director Gordon Parks' 1971 blaxploitation film, Shaft.

    • Julianne: Well, it looks like Fraggle Rock but it sounds like Queer as Folk. Describing the scene at "Goblins", Julianne refers to the remodeling taking place there by alluding to the strange cave-world of Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock and to the sexual orientation of its owners by alluding to the gay-themed, relationship drama of Queer as Folk.
