Goof: When Neela is being told she'll be going into Trauma Room 1, you can clearly tell her part is a voice over, as her mouth doesn't move until she says the word "yellow" at the end of her line.
(in the truama room)
Tony: Hey, Mayday, I've been looking for you.
Neela: Well, I guess you found me.
Abby: You're not lost, are you? If you need directions...
Moretti: No, no. (pauses) You know why we're here? Because of war. Without it, you would be a pediatrician or an oncologist. I'd probably still be losing my mind in the ICU.
Abby: War, huh?
Moretti: Uh huh. Emergency medicine is actually the result of centuries of warfare. It's a field that was defined by doctors and nurses, in bombed out buildings, trying to take care of patients on dirty canvas stretchers. And performing procedures in tent hospitals that were literally hundreds of feet away from where the battles raged. And these people, our predecessors, they had a simple primary focus: survival. And down in the bunkers they dug in deep, to try to save their patients lives and to try to save their own lives. And they ended up giving life to this whole new art form. This great collaborative enterprise, that we still carry on today. That's why we're here.
Abby: (nods her head) You don't get out much, do you?
(Abby, Pratt and Morris are all complaining about Moretti)
Morris: Hey, let's go grab a drink while we plan the revolution.
Abby: I could use something to eat.
Morris: Come on, Greg. You're buying.
(as members of the ER staff are waiting outside the recovery room to see Neela)
Morris: I'm calling for pizza. Who's in? (all raise their hand) Cool! Pratt, you're buying.
