  • Quotes

    • Anna: (after Weaver made her smell her wrist) Lilac.
      Kerry: It's called "Spring Rain."
      Anna: It's nice.
      Kerry: Really? You don't think it's too young for me?
      Anna: No way. My mom wears something just like that.

    • Romano: Ah, here's our little action hero.
      Corday: How does it look?
      Romano: Like ground beef. No, actually, more like chopped liver.
      Corday: Yeah, but do you think we have a chance for limb salvage?
      Romano: You want my honest opinion? No, I don't think you do.
      Corday: Well, I'd like to give it our best shot.
      Romano: You got it, Lizzie. No holds barred. One hundred and ten percent.

    • Carter: We are going to evacuate the entire ER. Check every room. All contaminated patients and staff go to the ambulance bay right now.
      Malik: Wait a minute. How do we know who's contaminated?
      Carter: If you got a spot on your skin, if you got a spot on your gurney, if you got a spot on your clothes, go outside right now.

    • Weaver: Hey, is that Mr. Arteburn's chart?
      Jerry: Yeah, yeah. Actually, check this out. Blue Cross. Not the HMO, not the PPO. Traditional indemnity plan gold.
      Weaver: Jerry, we treat everyone the same.
      Jerry: I'm just thinking about the budget deficit.

  • Notes

    • 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.

    • The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series. It was nominated 2 for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Drama Series and for Outstanding Single Camera Picture Editing for a Series.
