  • Quotes

    • Dr. Cox: It's just that the guy's here like a thousand times a year, taking up a bed. And every second I'm in there with him, it's time away from somebody I could actually help.
      Carla: Well, what do you want me to do about it?
      Dr. Cox: Follow my lead... Alas, Mr. Corman, shockingly, all your labs have come back and they're negative for... everything.
      Mr. Corman: Aw, come on!
      Dr. Cox: Okay, I'll tell you what: You have suggested that you're feeling rather tired lately, haven't you.
      Mr. Corman: I'm listening.
      Dr. Cox: And that you bruise easily?
      Mr. Corman: Like an old banana.
      Dr. Cox: For the record, I think you're fine. But, if you'd like, we can go ahead and check out your bone marrow. Of course, that would mean sticking an enormous needle all the way through your hip - and it's very, very, very, very excruciatingly painful. Right, Carla?
      Carla: Yes.
      Dr. Cox: Thank you, Carla. Now, what's it gonna be, there, champ? Head home and get some rest, or an afternoon of senseless, mind-numbing... agony?
      Mr. Corman: Eh, what the hell. I'll take the giant hip needle.
