  • Quotes

    • Diego: I was stupid enough to believe that you would appreciate, like, a big grand gesture and that you would find it romantic and be swept off your feet.
      Jesse: Yeah, well maybe next time you do a grand gesture you should call first.
      Diego: That is not a grand gesture, that is a planned gesture.

    • Jesse: I took on too much, all right? It is too hard for me. I'm just in—I'm in over my head, alright? I'm not Superwoman, okay? I'm Rather-Incapable Girl.

    • Jesse: I don't work here anymore. Take your pee to the mean man.

    • Linda: You still want to be a nurse?
      Jesse: Yeah, of course. You know, it's still hard, and gross stuff happens, but there's enough cool stuff in between all the gross stuff to make it okay, you know?
      Linda: Wow, that's how my mom described sex.

    • Kurt: You're a distracted person; my time is precious.
      Jesse: Huh?
      Kurt: You were late today, that took up my precious time. You're in nursing school. I'm a nurse. You'll ask me questions. Avoiding you will take up my precious time. You have a family life. You'll want to show me pictures. Pretending to be interested will take up my precious time.

  • Notes

    • The series was completely retooled between seasons, with Jesse's father and brothers disappearing and the featured workplace becoming a hospital.
