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.
