  • Quotes

    • Abby: I need a favor.
      Richard: Abby, it's 8 o'clock in the morning.
      Abby: Yeah, I know. I don't have a lot of time. I need you to co-sign a loan.
      Richard: Why don't you just declare bankruptcy?
      Abby: Look, I'm not in trouble, ok? I just need you...
      Richard: You want me to support you?
      Abby: No. I never asked for alimony, I didn't contest anything in court, I didn't take the damned furniture.
      Richard: You could have, if you wanted to.
      Abby: Look, you must know how much I hate to do this. I wouldn't do it unless it was absolutely necessary. I don't want your money, I just want your signature.

    • Abby: You glad to be home?
      Luka: Yes and no. I miss it. You're not in your own head all the time. Part of something that's in constant motion over there. Any break you get from it is a luxury. Not something to be taken for granted.
      Abby: And that's different from County how?
      Luka: It's an addiction, I guess.
      Abby: Yeah, it certainly hooked Carter.
      Luka: Yeah. How are you doing with that?
      Abby: Without him, you mean? I'm fine. I'm better than fine.
      Luka: So you're happy?
      Abby: Getting there. I'm making a few decisions.
      Luka: Like what?
      Abby: (as her pager goes off) I don't want to jinx myself. Work wants me back.
      Luka: Tonight? Pretend you didn't get the page.
      Abby: I need the money.
      Luka: See you soon then?
      Abby: Yeah. Good night.

    • Nurse at counter: Oh, Abby, you're back. Can you cover for Melinda at triage?
      Abby: Sure, I'd love to. (talking to herself) Triage is my personal favorite. Thanks for asking.

    • Kerry: How's it going?
      Abby: You talking to me?
      Kerry: Yeah.
      Abby: Fine.
      Kerry: Glad to hear it. You're one of the best nurses on the floor with all the changes that Robert's been making, and I'd hate to lose you.
      Abby: Thanks!

    • Nurse: Dr. Pratt, your open-fracture patient demands to be euthanized.

    • Cooper: I like your style man.
      Pratt: Oh yeah? Get your own.

    • Lewis: I never thought I'd say this, but I kind of miss 'little stumpy' [Romano].

    • Romano: You are a screw-up Pratt; and, just to make myself clear, I didn't like you before I knew that.

    • Corday: Your acute abdomen is accutely constipated. Give him an enema and some Colace.
      Pratt: How did I know you were going to say that?
