Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This is the second time in the series a character has suspected that Santa Claus was real. The first time was in Season 2's "A Miracle Happens Here," when Nurse Carol Hathaway has a patient who looks like Santa Claus. She later finds he has disappeared and hears Santa's laugh as she looks out the window.

    • Goof: In the fourth act, Luka refers to "Jasna and the kids" dying, but Jasna was the name of Luka's daughter; his wife's name was Danijela.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Morris: Honey, Melia, it is so good to see you. Wh-What are you doing here?
      Melia: I ran away.
      Morris: Why, sweetie?
      Melia: Because of Donald, Mom's new husband. He won't let me celebrate Christmas. He says there's no such thing as Santa.
      Morris: No, he didn't.
      Melia: He says there's no elves, no reindeer, and Christmas is just made up so people will spend money.
      Hope: No, that's crazy.
      Melia: So I decided I would spend the holiday with my real dad. (to Morris) That's you.

    • Morris: Melia? What...? What are you doing here?
      Melia: Daddy.
      Hope: Daddy?
      (Morris walks to Melia and they hug each other)
      Ray: Great. Another one of Morris's petri dish kids.
      Ben: Wait, Morris has kids?
      Ray: Four, that we know of.

    • Frank: You waiting for Weaver?
      Sam: Yeah.
      Morris: Well, don't hit her. She's crippled.

    • Morris: It is like some dorky angel has taken control of my mouth.

    • Ray: (to Gates) If you're making promises you have no intention of keeping, just cut loose, minimize the damage okay.
      Gates: This isn't just about the kids is it?
      Ray: No, it's not.

    • Morris: (To a patient) Hi Leonore, I'm Dr. Morris. I would wish you a Merry Christmas but as an employee of the County, I'm duty bound to respect the seperation of church and state.

    • (Luka and Abby are dressed as Rudolph and his elf, and Luka starts kissing Abby in her neck)
      Abby: (Smiles) Back off, Rudolph.
      Luka: Be nice.
      Abby: You be nice... Or you're not gonna get your special present.
      Luka: What kind of present?
      Abby: Mmm, a slightly naughty one.
      (They start giggling)
      Luka: My favorite kind.

    • Morris: (To himself, on turning down Hope who asked him out) Idiot!... Moron!... Aahhh... (Takes off his hat) She-She was right there! Right there for the fondling, and y-you just let her go! Why!? Why!? (Scratches his head) W-why'd you had to be such a good Christian? Hah... There's no... There's no God, There's no... Christmas. (Looks up and screams) There's no freakin' Santa Claus! (And it starts snowing).

    • Sam: Come on. Everyone deserves a little bit of happiness at Christmas time.

    • Pratt: What's goin' on Morris?
      Morris (Dressed as a Santa) Oh, we did okay Greg.
      Pratt: Just okay? Did we rock the house, or we were closed to patients?
      Morris: No, we just moved people through.
      Pratt: All right, all right. Go ahead, you can gloat now. Tell me all about what a great manager you are: I saved Jerry, I diagnosed DID, yada yada.
      Morris: You know what? I'm going to go with humility this time. (Gives Pratt a tap on his shoulder). For real.
      Pratt: (Pauses and gives him a look) Humili-what?

    • Morris: At the end of the day, it's just us in the mirror. We're the ones who determine our own moral value. And to me, that's what Christmas is all about.

    • Luka: When Jasna and the kids died, I needed to make a change and decided to move here. It made my brother really angry. He said I was a coward, that I was running away. It's only recently I've come to know he was wrong. I wasn't running away from anything, I was running to you. I'll never let anything take this away!

    • Abby: Did I mention how hot you look in antlers? (Luka sighs)

    • (Angrily, explaining to Abby why he threatened Curtis Ames.)
      Luka: I did it because I love you and I love Joe, and I wasn't going to let that a**hole keep threatening us!

    • Neela: (to Ray and Tony) Why don't you either slap each other silly, or kiss now and get it over with.
