  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Dr. O'Hara: (to Jackie) You'd better not care more about that old nurse than you do about me.

    • Jackie: You know, with the lung cancer maybe you shouldn't be smoking.
      Paula: I know, It'll kill me.

    • Grace: (about Grace's new school Immaculate Virgin) The nuns there whack your knuckles with wooden rulers.
      Jackie: Honey, that is not true.
      Fiona: I'd whack them back.
      Kevin: No, baby. Trust me. You don't want to whack a nun.

    • Jackie: "Vagina mom", should I even ask?
      Dr. O'Hara: Apparently, Coop's got two mothers. Vagina mom is the one that actually gave birth to him, as opposed to putting him in a sack and tossing him in the sea, and the other one is... the other one.

    • Mrs. Akalitus: How are you feeling?
      Paula: Like I'm dying. And every time I see you, I'm reminded what a slow and agonizing process it is.

    • Mo-mo: You actually have beautiful feet.
      Paula: My ex-husband thought so too.
      Mo-mo: Someone married you?
      Paula: Don't get excited. He divorced me too.

    • Zoey: I sense that Jackie is going through something. And as her protégé, I think it's my duty to be there to support her.
      Dr. O'Hara: Darling, your instincts are spot on.
      Zoey: I thought so too. And not to take anything away from your friendship with Jackie...
      Dr. O'Hara: Of course not.
      Zoey: You're a doctor. She and I are both nurses and that trenches together, you know. I want her to know that I'm here for her. And I think she's afraid to cry.
      Dr. O'Hara: Darling, you're absolutely right. You know what Jackie needs right now is mountains of hugs. Especially from you. I'll give you a little tip. She's gonna want to run, but don't you let her. She needs you, Zoey. Now more than ever.

    • Mrs. Akalitus: (to Jackie) If there's anything I can do to expedite matters upstairs, just let me know. Even if I have to pull somebody else's plug to make room.

    • Paula: So is bed 5 still doing its magic?
      Zoey: I don't know what magic?
      Mo-mo: Bed 5's famous for people dying in it. They check in, but they don't check out.
      Paula: Sounds good to me.

    • Fiona: What's purple punishment?
      Grace: Corporal punishment. It means they can hit you, but they don't do it unless it's for your own good.
      Kevin: They hit me.
      Jackie: It must've been for your own good.
