Angelique: Gillian Ronin, meet Dr. Carter.
Carter: John. Hi.
Angelique: (French) He's an American. Doesn't speak French. So you'll have to translate.
Gillian: (French) He's cute, married?
Angelique: (French) Don't see a ring. But it's never stopped you before.
Gillian: (French) I'm trying to exhibit some newfound restraint.
Angelique: (to Carter) Gillian's an old hand. She'll get you started in Admitting. (to Gillian in French) Don't let him kill anyone.
Gillian: (French) I'll do my best.
(Angelique laughs and walks away)
Carter: I didn't know you smoked.
Kovac: (holding a lit cigarette) I don't.
Luka: In the beginning there's always a lot of talk of national pride and patriotic speeches. But after a few weeks it becomes this; nothing but death and sadness. These people just want what everyone else wants: their kids to have something to eat; to see them grow up, laughing, happy. They don't care where the border is or who gets to call themselves president. They just want this to stop.
Carter: I don't even begin to try to understand the politics here.
Luka: You are an American, Carter. You believe that if people are given a chance to convert to democracy, the world would be a better place.
Carter: What's the alternative? Military dictatorships?
Luka: You fight wars from the sky with bombs and missiles. Then your planes land back on the aircraft carrier and the pilots watch Drew Carey on satellite TV.
Carter: Hey, American soldiers died in Iraq.
Luka: Yeah, but your children don't starve to death while your men fight. Your women aren't raped. (long pause) I remember watching the television, reading the newspapers, saying that we had to fight. And then my family was gone. I couldn't remember why it was all so important. What difference did it all make? My children were dead.
Carter: Where are you from? Your English is excellent.
Gillian: Montreal. We speak a little English up there.
Gillian: I'm exhausted. I'm going to bed, and uh, I hope someone will join me. (Gillian leaves)
Luka: How's Abby?
Carter: I didn't do anything with Gillian, I swear.
Luka: So you won't mind, if I...
Carter: No. Knock yourself out.
Luka: See you in the morning.
Carter: What should I tell Weaver?
Luka: Whatever you want.
Carter: Can I tell her you're coming back?
Luka: I don't know.
Carter: Don't do anything stupid.
Luka: (smiles) Like what?
Carter: Like get yourself killed.
Carter: They don't have anything stronger than Amoxicillin. Did you tell that boy's father we can save him?
Luka: We can.
Carter: Whooping cough's gonna eat that Amoxicillin for lunch. He's gonna die. Die from a disease we could wipe out with a ten dollar course of Erythromycin.
Luka: We vaccinated 200 children today. When was the last time you saved 200 lives in one afternoon?
