Greg: You want to get some coffee? I know a great place a couple blocks from here.
Jeanie: You know what, it's getting late and I've got to work early tomorrow.
Greg: Are you sure that's the reason?
Jeanie: Well, I'm afraid.
Greg: Of what?
Jeanie: Of liking you too much. (he kisses her)
Greg: What's wrong?
Jeanie: Nobody's done that in a really long time. Aren't you afraid?
(he kisses her again)
Doug: How did you end up going out with two women on the same night?
Mark: Scheduling mix-up. Any suggestions?
Doug: Dinner with one, drinks with the other.
Mark: Yeah... I think they're both expecting the works.
Doug: Who do you like more?
Mark: Well, Heather's a lot of fun.
Doug: Fun's good.
Mark: Polly, she's... she's very spiritual.
Doug: Spiritual like what? Like, like crystals or something?
Mark: Heather's got Bulls tickets.
Doug: Bulls! Say no more.
Mark: Yeah, you're right. I'll call Polly. I'll make up an excuse and go out with her tomorrow night.
Doug: You're playing with fire here.
Mark: I can juggle.
Doug: You're gonna get burnt. Women can smell deceit.
Mark: You ought to know.
Doug: Those days are long gone, my friend.
Mark: So, what do you do now?
Doug: Give advice.
Chuny: I thought you had a date.
Chuny: They busted you?
Mark: They busted me.
Chuny: Men are so stupid. How many women were you dating when you were with me?
Mark: Just you.
Mark: Yeah, you know, except for that night when my neighbor, the ballerina, broke up with her boyfriend. You know, I had to comfort her.
Chuny: Yeah, so that was like a public service.
Mark: Yeah. Other than that, I was totally faithful.
Chuny: Oh, I feel blessed.
(Carter has just finished the appendectomy on Benton)
Carter: I am ready to close.
Dr. Hicks: Nice work, Carter.
Carter: Thanks. Maybe I'll staple my name into his belly.
Wendy: This pamphlet says that 40% of all doctors don't wash their hands between patients.
Doug: No kidding.
Wendy: Yeah. And medical personnel pick their noses on average of three times an hour. And many interns only bathe twice a week...
Doug: (interrupting) Wendy, there's a limit on how well informed I want to be.
(Ross and Weaver walk into the ER for their shift; she notices that he is using a crutch but does not see his injured ankle)
Weaver: Doug, that's not funny...
(to Benton, as he awakens from anesthesia)
Hicks: Dr. Benton, I'm pregnant.
Weaver: Dr. Benton, I'm pregnant.
Carter: Dr. Benton, I'm pregnant.
Benton: Where's Dr. Hicks?
Carter: Oh, there's been a last minute substitution.
Carter: Don't worry, Dr. Benton. We're going to take very good care of you.
(when Carter sees that his appendectomy patient is Benton)
Carter: Whoa! Ho, ho, ho, ho... There is a God!
Jeanie: The most important thing is to wash your hands after going to the bathroom.
Jerry: What? Every time?
George Clooney injured his ankle just before filming of this episode began, so the script was rewritten to incorporate his injury.
