  • Quotes (12)

    • Grace: Why are you doing this? Carter: Because I know what it's like to need help when you least want it. Grace: Please. Please just leave me alone. Carter: I can't.

    • (Carter tells Susan about his past drug addiction) Susan: Fentanyl? Carter: Figured if I was going to abuse drugs, I'd abuse a good one.

    • Abby: Every now and then, some freak tries to off himself in here. I wish they'd just do it at home.

    • Susan: I need a Psych consult. My patient thinks he's a vampire. Abby: Count Fred? Where is he? Susan: Exam 2. Abby: Is there a nurse in there with him? Susan: No. Why? Abby: He's a vampire. Susan: What do you mean he's a vampire? Abby: I mean, he drinks people's blood. Susan: You're kidding, right? (Abby, Gallant and Susan see Count Fred on the floor drinking with a straw from a pack of blood. He smiles shyly. They watch him in astonishment.) Susan: That's nasty.

    • Gallant: Excuse me, ma'am. Are you Dr. Carter by any chance? Lewis: Lewis. I don't think he's in yet. And I'm not old enough to be a ma'am. Gallant: Sorry about that. I'm supposed to meet him here around eight. Lewis: Mmm, you're a tad early. Gallant: Yeah, it's my first day. I guess I was a little excited. Lewis: You'll get over it.
