  • Quotes (10)

    • Morris: Abby, you get fever rash. I will take dog bite to the ear lobe. Wait, no--you take dog bite and I'll take the rash. It could be Rubella. We wouldn't want our baby getting a torch infection. Abby: What? Morris: Torch infection. You know, herpes. Abby: I know what a torch infection is. Morris: Then you know it wouldn't be good for our baby. Abby: Why do you keep calling it "our" baby? Morris: I don't mean our baby like you and me. I mean like our baby, like an ER mascot. Abby: This baby isn't anybody's mascot. (she walks away). Morris: Oh, come on! Don't go away mad!

    • Mr. Sadler: I think I've just committed suicide.

    • Clemente: I had the weekend off, did a little weed and some blow. You're a musician, you know what I mean. Ray: No, not really. Clemente: What? You in a Christian band?

    • (Morris is showing the ER to his "kids"} Morris: Hey, Abby! Come meet my children. Abby: Not now, Morris. Morris: (to the children) Okay. She hates kids.

    • (talking about baptizing their baby) Luka: Okay... Have you ever been to a baptism? Abby: Yeah, I have. I thought it was weird. Luka: Weird?!

    Allusions (2)

    • Protesters: Rats have rights! "Rats have rights" is a slogan that originated with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). PETA is opposed to all research involving animals.

    • Abby: (to Luka, about baptizing their baby-to-be) There's something so... so Rosemary's Baby about it. Abby is referring to the 1968 horror movie Rosemary's Baby, starring Mia Farrow. The film involves a pregnant woman who believes Satanists are after her baby.
