  • Quotes

    • Hank: Dr. Weissman, my friend Bill would like to register a complaint.
      Dr. Weissman: Ohh, are you upset or something? I said you had diabetes, not cry-a-betes.
      Bill: You told me I was going to lose my legs!
      Dr. Weissman: No, I said your legs could fail one day, possibly. I-I never said anything that could constitute malpractice, other it's current definition.
      Bill: Hmm, my legs work just fine. Isn't that inspiring! (Bill closes the door and starts beating up Dr. Weissman)
      Hank (to nurse): Uh, my friend is just, uh...
      Nurse: I don't hear a thing.

    • Dr. Weissman: Have you seen other doctors?
      Bill: Yes.
      Dr. Weissman: Did they tell you to diet and exercise?
      Bill: Yes.
      Dr. Weissman: Did you do it?

    • Dale: You know it's amazing how we don't get sunburned.

    • Hank: You could never really describe Bill as able-bodied before, but now it's not even an option.

    • Dale: Bill can't keep his hands off the sweets. He's just like Winnie the Pooh . . . who also has diabetes.

    • Dale: Well, they say diabetes can happen to anyone, and "anyone" usually means "Bill."

  • Notes

    • The scene in which Bill is playing basketball with the Rugby team, the song playing is "I'm Shipping Up to Boston". The song says that the man is going to lose his legs, just like Bill thought he would do.
