  • Quotes

    • Ray: I know you're a fraud.
      Dr. Brenda Marshall: Get Out.
      Ray: No you're a fraud who screws up. Because you're too arrogant to believe that other people, Nurses know as much as you do and god forbid even more and then when you do screw up you hang us out to dry.
      Dr. Brenda Marshall: You can't talk to me like that.
      Ray: Oh really, What are you going to do, you going to fire me? Go ahead, try it, try it. Because then I will tell everybody what I know who you are. You're not so tough.

    • (after they lost a patient in the ER)
