The title of this episodes is mentioned in a conversation between Corday and Romano, when Corday is operating on the man Nathan diagnosed with cellulitis, a serious bacterial skin infection. Corday tells Romano that the patient has "a hopeless wound" and will have to have his leg amputated, but that he is young and should handle a prosthetic well.
(Abby catches up with Carter)
Abby: Hey. Hey! You changed!
Carter: I just put on some scrub pants.
Abby: Oh come on! You know Carter, my outfit is really starting to bug me, too! But we agreed to stay in costume the entire shift.
Carter: Hey, I am.
Abby: No, you're not! That's like half a costume, so it's like 50 percent commitment.
Carter: Are you serious? Or are you kidding? Do you know what I've been dealing with down here?
Abby: Yeah! Me too, and in pumps!
Elizabeth: Uh, Robert, can we talk tomorrow? I really have to get Ella home.
Romano: I thought you might want this before you left.
Elizabeth: That's my ring.
Romano: Amazing what you can do with a laparoscopic camera and a snip.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Romano: De nada.
(Corday walks in on a surgery, where Romano is operating on a pig)
Romano:Though even with one arm, I'm a better surgeon than the rest of the hacks in this hospital.
Corday: Robert, you're not cleared to do surgery, even on farm animals.
(Chuny and Luka are arguing and walk by Carter, who is wearing a skeleton costume)
Carter: Is there a problem here?
Luka: Yeah, you got no guts!
Chuny: Labs on your baby. (throws them at him as she walkes by)
Luka: Thank you!
Abby: Glad to see you've made up!
Luka: Hey, I'm being professional. She's the one having trouble. I warned her.
Abby: Warned her about what?
Abby: Oh my God. You are such a jerk!
Abby: You slept with her? That's what this is all about. What's your problem?
Luka: Ey, one time.
Abby: One time? One time with Chuny, one time with a patient's mother in radiology.
Luka: Hey, you never complained!
Abby: Yeah, I never let it affect my work. You two need to figure this out.
Luka: So, what do you want me to do?
Abby: I don't know, tell her you're sorry. Tell her it was wrong. Just fix it.
Luka: I'm not gonna kiss her ass.
Abby: That's how this whole problem started.
Luka: Are you wearing that for your shift?
Abby: Yes. It's Halloween. You know, Jerry sent out a memo.
Susan: Ooo. Naughty nurse!
Abby: I'm not a naughty nurse.
Susan: I like it.
Abby: I'm not... It's like an old fashioned nurse.
Frank: Looks naughty to me.
Luka: So what, you're like a kurva nurse?
Abby: What's that?
Luka: How do you say, uh, sly, uh, tramp, whore...
Abby: Yeah, I got it. You know, maybe I should've worn that school-girl outfit you bought me.
Susan and Frank stares at Luka
Luka: (laughs) Eh, she's making a joke!
Chuny: I'm not working with him.
Chuny: Because he treats nurses like idiots!
Lukaism: Hey, if your boots fit!
(after Corday loses her wedding ring down the drain)
Romano: Somebody call the Tiffany's Search and Rescue team!
Corday: I lost my wedding ring!
Romano: Oh boo-hoo, this guy's about to lose a leg! I'd say chop chop, but that would be in extremely poor taste!
Luka: Maybe you could wear some Swaztikas with that outfit. You could be a naughty Nazi nurse.
Abby: You totally suck, you know that?!
Luka: Hey, careful! Creating a hostile work environment!
Romano: (to Corday) I know most people don't like me. I don't care. I don't like most people. But I'm good at what I do. I save people's lives, everyday. People who no one else can help. If I can't do that...
Weaver: Chuny, where's Kovac?
Chuny: Don't know. Don't care.
(to Paul Nathan, about Weaver)
Abby: Don't worry, she doesn't bite... much.
(Abby is wearing a sexy nurse's outfit)
Drunk patient: I wanna go to heaven on the bosom of a beautiful woman.
Abby: I don't think your HMO covers that.
Carter: Frank, where's your costume?
Frank: I don't observe pagan holidays that celebrate devil worship.
Abby: (taking the candy away from him) Well, this is only for satanists.
