Frank Martin: What?
Nurse Samantha Taggart: Not like that.

Dr. Luka Kovac: I'm sorry about the splint.
Nurse Samantha Taggart: Look, I appreciate you trying to be his friend. I just don't want things to get weird. You're a good guy, I'm sure, but you don't know crap about raising kids. So thanks for the help, but no thanks. I got it covered.

Dr. Luka Kovac: What? The chances are really small.
Dr. Abby Lockhart: [laughing] If your mutant, Croatian seed causes me to have twins, I'm going to...

"ER: Secrets and Lies (#8.16)" (2002)
Dr. Luka Kovac: We're all waiting, for what? Fulfillment, love... validation, approval? It's a waste of time. Life is an empty, hollow exercise filled with pain, loss and grief, and the *only* thing we can expect to achieve in our lives is our own, inevitable death.

Dr. John Carter: How about those Bears?

Dr. Luka Kovac: It's a very popular name in Croatia.
[pauses then laughs]
Dr. Luka Kovac: I am just teasing you. My father's name is Joseph, and for that matter, name the baby anything you like, whatever.

Dr. Coburn: You know I want you to have a healthy baby
Dr. Abby Lockhart: Then why do you keep focusing on the worst-case scenario?
Dr. Luka Kovac: It's her job.

Dr. Abby Lockhart: Is one going to be enough?
Dr. Luka Kovac: What?

Nurse Samantha Taggart: You know what, I don't care. It's fine, Luka.
Dr. Luka Kovac: It's fine?

Dr. Luka Kovac: It was only fifty bucks.
Nurse Sam Taggart: For a concert ticket for a ten year old, NO. That's ridiculous.
Dr. Luka Kovac: I just don't think you should be worried about money so much.
Nurse Sam Taggart: Look, I appreciate your generosity, but I am not going to let you start paying for everything.
Dr. Luka Kovac: But you don't have to pay exactly half the rent and half the bills every month, that's ridiculous.
Nurse Sam Taggart: You know I've been taking care of me and Alex for 10 years on my own, I think I can handle it.
Dr. Luka Kovac: You know, this isn't about money at all. You're worried about losing your independence or something. And about my role in Alex's live. What are you worried you're losing control or something.
Nurse Sam Taggart: You know what, you always do this.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Do what?
Nurse Sam Taggart: This! Telling me what I'm really mad about.

[while treating Carter who has been stabbed to the back]
Dr. Jing-Mei 'Deb' Chen: Right pupil is five millimeters and reactive, left is- John! John!

Dr. Luka Kovac: Hey, careful! Creating a hostile work environment!

Dr. Elizabeth Corday: I lost my wedding ring!
Dr. Robert Romano: Oh, boo-hoo, this guy's about to lose a leg. I'd say chop-chop, but that would be in extremely bad taste.

Dr. Gregory Pratt: She was my patient!
Dr. Luka Kovac: Yes, and if I hadn't treated her, she would still be here. Now she's at home and feeling better.
Dr. Gregory Pratt: So, that's it? This is how I'm supposed to learn? Either I do it your way or you take it away from me?
Dr. Luka Kovac: Pratt, I'm trying to teach you the way you practice medicine here is inefficient.
Dr. Gregory Pratt: Oh, and letting babies die is?
Dr. Luka Kovac: You really think you saved that kid today? For what? 24-hours nursing care. He's probably gonna require a lifetime committment. Are you gonna be around to give it to him?
Dr. Gregory Pratt: Listen, I'm sorry I'm not in some mud-hut doing amputations with a pocketknife. We have the technology and expertise to give that kid a chance! What's the sense in having it if we don't use it?
Dr. Luka Kovac: That kid has about a 5% chance of having a normal life. You have any idea how many other kids we could have treated with those resources?
Dr. Gregory Pratt: I do everything I can for my patients! That's how I practice medicine. This is Chicago, not the damned Congo. Maybe you should go back to Africa.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Maybe you should go to Africa.
Dr. Gregory Pratt: I know you didn't just say that to me.

Abby Lockhart: It's all in the wrist.
Dr. Luka Kovac: I think I pulled a muscle.
Abby Lockhart: I think we should take a break.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Draft please, Abby?
Abby Lockhart: Club soda.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Okay. So next time, I choose the sport maybe something more civilized? There's a pool table in my hotel.
Abby Lockhart: Your hotel?
Dr. Luka Kovac: Yeah. I don't own it. I just live there.
Abby Lockhart: You live in a hotel?
Dr. Luka Kovac: Yeah, as a doctor. I take care of the tourists. They give me a break on the rent.

Dr. Luka Kovac: No, no. I mean, if I wanted to talk about it, Sam probably wouldn't be moving out.
Abby Lockhart: Thanks, Luka.
