    • QUOTES (8)

      • Jack: Sometimes a dog is just a dog and an 'I love you' is just that. If you want the white dress wedding and cozy little dinner parties with our married friends, then, um... I've gotta be honest. Right now I'm not that guy.
        Zan Avidan: So, all that stuff about your sister, that was just...
        Jack: No, but she's a very big part. But she's not everything.
        (Zan takes her purse and walks away)
        Jack: Oh, come on, don't go!
        Zan Avidan: Give me one good reason why I shouldn't.
        Jack: I want you to stay.
        Zan Avidan: Tonight? Tomorrow?
        Jack: Yeah!
        Zan Avidan: And after that?
        (Jack hesitates)
        Zan Avidan (sad): It's not good enough.

      • Zan Avidan: I want a real relationship.
        Jack: You don't think that's what we're doing?
        Zan Avidan: You're doing it again.
        Jack: I'm not doing it again, that was a simple question.
        Zan Avidan: No! You are deflecting. I'm standing here, pouring my heart at you and you're playing shrink games with me.
        Jack: I'm not playing shrink games.

      • Zan Avidan: Two days ago I said that I might be in love with you.
        Jack: I remember.
        Zan Avidan: And what did you say?
        Jack: I said I liked dogs.
        Zan Avidan: Jack...
        Jack: What? What do you want to hear? What are you feeling? What do you want me to say?
        Zan Avidan: Don't- don't start psychoanalyzing me, I know my feelings. I'm very secure in my feelings.
        Jack: I'm not suggesting that you're not, I'm just trying to understand.

      • Arturo: What the hell do you think you're doing?
        Diego: Arturo, I have a strong feeling about this.
        Arturo: You are not a real doctor. You play one on television.
        Diego: True, but after 22 seasons, I've had the occasion to diagnose many complex medical problems.
        Arturo: That's it. I'm done. There's not arguing with you. You're right, I'm wrong. End of rounds. End of discussion.

      • Veronica: Leeza, can you tell us the name of your father?
        Leeza pushes a key on the computer
        Computer: Dad.
        Jack: Smarter than us.

      • Arturo: So, how was your trip?
        Diego: There's no such thing as first class anymore.
        Arturo: So I hear.
        Diego: I mean I remember the days when they used to roll the cart right up next to your chair and pour wine into a real glass. They used to slice the prime rib right in front of you. The stewardesses now, not even that pretty.
        Arturo: I think they're called flight attendants now dad.

      • Lieutenant Truitt: Doc, I'm assuming she's in shock.
        Jack: I don't think so.
        Lieutenant Truitt: Well, that's impossible. I mean, the way we're figuring, the victim, who the apartment manager says is her father, was shot right here twice at close range. There's no way she didn't witness the whole thing.
        Jack: I don't think it's shock. I think she's autistic.
        Lieutenant Truitt: You mean like Rain Man? She sees the whole thing go down, but she can't walk about it?
        Jack: Well, her verbal skills are pretty good, actually, but she's echolalic. She repeats back a lot of what is said to her. And even though the murder took place right here, un, she may not appreciate what happened.
        Detective Bagdonis: I knew it. I, uh, got a nephew who's autistic.
        Lieutenant Truitt: that's just my luck. I got an eyewitness to a murder, it happens right smack in front of her, and she's gonna be the worst witness on the planet.
        Jack: With respect, Lieutenant, if that man's her father, uh, being a witness isn't, um…isn't really what we should be worrying about right now.
        Lieutenant Truitt: Oh, I'm sorry.

      • Zan: Let me ask you something, that girl that you lived with were you in love with her?
        Jack: Depends. Do you define love by how good you feel when you're in the middle of the relationship or how bad you feel when it ends?
        Zan: Okay well how did you feel when it ended?
        Jack: It was the right thing to do.
