    • (Brackett and Dixie are discussing Nurse Sharon Walters) Brackett: You know, maybe I've been wrong about her, Dix. Dixie: Oh? Brackett: Ah, she was like a veteran. Knew exactly what to do and did it without fumbling. Oxygen therapy, high Fowler's position. Dixie: I noticed. Brackett: She was like a different person. Why the sudden change? Dixie: Simple. I explained you to her. Brackett: What's that's supposed to mean. Dixie: Well, you're not on that big, high pedestal anymore. It was making her nervous. (Nurse Sharon Walters comes to the cabinet behind the desk to gets something, and looks Brackett square in the eye with a enigmatic expression) Brackett: Exactly what did you tell her about me. (Dixie looks at him mysteriously)
