  • Quotes (8)

    • Malik: Hey, big guy, love the tie. Jerry: Thank you, Malik. Thank you very much. Chuny: What's the occasion? Jerry: Well, since you asked... I've been promoted. Mark: To what? Jerry: Supervising emergency service coordinator. Malik: More money, huh? Jerry: Unfortunately, no. Chuny: Better benefits? Jerry: No. Mark: More responsibility? Jerry: No. Mark: Well, congratulations.

    • Greene: An exciting case? Here's one: Guy comes in, hypovolemic shock. Defibrillated ten, fifteen times. We maxed out on lidocaine, added bretylium, finally shocked him back to sinus, goes bradycardic. So I float a transvenous pacemaker, get capture, he stops breathing. I had to climb on, intubate him cowboy-style right there on the table. Wendy: Wow! Greene: Man. Wendy: What happened? Greene: He died.

    • Ross: What can I say about Mark Greene that hasn't already been said? I think everybody knows how he overcame adversity as a child of Quakers, his years in exile, his political writings and limericks, his mod period with the turtlenecks, his blue period, and of course, his ruthless march to power and the silencing of his rivals.

    • Haleh: I've known Mark Greene since he was a wet-behind-the-ears med student. He had the most beautiful curly blond hair, and so polite. All I'd do was ask and he would be cleaning the bedpans and changing the sheets. He was the best scut-puppy I ever had. Wendy: So would you say that, back then, he was sort of "green"? Haleh: No, Wendy, I would never say that.

    • Shep: You know what your problem is, Hathaway? You've been going out with too many doctors.

    • Title: "Do One, Teach One, Kill One" The title of this episode is a twist on the saying "See one, do one, teach one," a traditional format for acquiring medical skills. It is based on a 3-step process: visualize, perform, regurgitate.
