    • QUOTES (6)

      • (When he finds Mrs. Akalitus who accidentally tasered herself)
        Thor: Taser? Been there, sister. 15 minutes and you're good as new.

      • (After Jackie gave a woman the money for a pregnancy test)
        Zoey: I can't believe she took the money!
        Jackie: Yeah, but bullshit like that comes in all the time, clogs up the waiting room, slows everybody down. Wasn't even my 20, I got it off a dead guy in the morgue. (Zoey looks at her) Just kidding, Zoey, just kidding.

      • Jackie: You don't usually work nights. What's up?
        Mrs. Akalitus: You tell me. You make the nurses' schedule, always working with your favorite people. I'm concerned about the level of socializing.

      • Zoey: Nights are different.
        Jackie: Yes. More stab wounds, more drunks, less nutjobs, less children. Okay, you prioritize by condition. Gunshots, stabbings, cardiac arrest followed by bleeders and shallow breathers.
        Zoey: Shallow breathers. Got it. What about someone who can't breath at all.
        Jackie: They are already dead. They go to the waiting room.

      • (Jackie shows Zoey how to fill out a patient file)
        Jackie: Okay, it's very simple. Everything they tell you, you type in their file, whatever they don't tell you, but you know to be true, type in their file.

      • (Looks at a picture her daughter Grace drew that shows a rainy and stormy beach scene)
        Jackie: (voice-over) Look at that. It's supposed to be Florida. Who draws Florida with no sun? It's the goddamn Sunshine State!
