    • QUOTES (7)

      • Sean: Flaking off or complete loss of finger or toenails?
        Cathy: Nope.
        Sean: Okay. So you have no side effects from the drugs. Is that good? I guess that's good.
        Cathy: I don't think so. I think it means that my body's resisting the drugs. If my nails aren't falling out, then it's not eating my cancer.

      • Nurse: (to Cathy about Sean) You know, we recommend patients bring a friend with them to treatment to help them stay calm. He may not be it.

      • Cathy: My blood pressure's too high. They might have to put me on medication.
        Lee: No, no, don't let them put you on blood pressure meds. We can get that down for you. Let me take you to my acupuncturist.
        Sean: That's what I just said.
        Cathy: Lee, this is my brother Sean. That is what he just said. You really think acupuncture can help?
        Sean: What, now you're interested 'cause it's his idea?
        Cathy: I'm curious.
        Sean: You weren't curious when I just told you about my guy.
        Cathy: Your guy's homeless.
        Sean: He's not homeless. He works on the homeless. Do you just tune me out?

      • Sean: My white coat syndrome's overriding my beta blockers. Um, hey, Doc, I just want you to ask yourself over and over today, "am I helping... or am I hurting?"

      • Cathy: My family is blunt, tense, and can't relax for shit.
        Lee: Well, let's see what we can do about that.

      • Paul: What the hell is he doing here? Only acceptable answer is you hit him with your car and dragged him home on your bumper.
        Cathy: His name is Lee, Paul, and we like him now.

      • Cathy: Are you two gambling?
        Adam: No, mom, we're playing online poker. It's not a big deal.
        Cathy: Do I need to remind you that you are grounded for a lot of other illicit activities? You want to add gambling to the list?
        Adam: Okay, fine. Okay, we'll play for Cheetos.
