    • Kerry: The food was terrible. The music stinks. The drinks are watered down. But you sure know how to throw a great party. Mark: Thank you. Kerry: You're welcome.

    • Mark: Each day we work together as a family. Because we're a family, it's no secret that it's been a rough year for me. So I want to thank each of you for helping me through some hard times. You stuck by me when I needed you. And you've given your best to make our ER a place that we can all be proud of. So thanks for being my family. I couldn't have made it without you.

    • Kerry: Carol, are your meatballs frozen? Carol: I think they're just a little cold. Doug: (looking at his plate) What is this? Carter: Jerry says it's called pyttipanna. Anna: What's that? Carter: I have no idea.

    • Lydia: What are you wearing tonight? Connie: My velvet dress. Lydia: The one you wore last year? Connie: I didn't pass out and rip mine in the parking lot like someone I know.

    • Doug: Alright. (whispers in Carol's ear) Now be honest with me. Think I have what it takes to be an attending? Carol: Of course you do. (Carol hands Doug a slice of orange) Doug: Thank you! Think of me as diplomatic? Carol: What does that have to do with that? Doug: Answer the question. Carol: Well, it's not the first word that springs to mind, no. Doug: What would the first word be that would spring to mind. Carol: Um... (Carol pauses to think) Stubborn... (Doug chuckles) opinionated... (Doug chuckles) insouciant... (Doug chuckles; Carol kisses Doug) Doug: Insouciant?!?! Carol: Look it up. (Carol walks away; Doug continues to chuckle) NOTE: insouciant means "free from concern, worry, or anxiety; carefree; nonchalant."

    Notes (2)

    • Though spelled correctly when he is listed as the series creator in the opening credits, Michael Crichton's last name is incorrectly spelled "Chrichton" when he is listed with the other executive producers in the end credits of this episode. This mistake was repeated in most of the Season 4 episodes and in all of the Season 6 episodes.

    • Music: Green Day, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"; Buster Poindexter, "Hot Hot Hot"; Dean Martin, "That's Amore"
