Dr. Kerry Weaver: She said you didn't find anything. She also said you seemed to be enjoying it.

Dr. Simon Brenner: Okay, sorry, remind me again Greg, you're not the chief of the department, right?
Dr. Gregory Pratt: No I'm not.
Dr. Simon Brenner: Okay, that's great. So you do things your way, and I'll stick with the way that works. Now, my shift's over, it's been an absolute pleasure, but I gotta go, I got a date, I got two actually.

[Pratt is on his way to Darfur]

Dr. Gregory Pratt: Yeah, well... I work in Chicago, at County ER. I've treated hundreds of gunshot wounds, knife wounds, domestic violence... I think I know my way around.
Vatima Abika: AIDS, malaria, dysentery... two million people homeless, not to mention the nearly 400,000 already slaughtered. Boys, babies, tossed onto bonfires. Women and young girls raped, sometimes by men, sometimes by bayonet. The work of gangs, all things you have seen. But in Darfur, it's political, and on a massive scale. And while this insanity rages on and on and on, the rest of the world continues its debate: is it or is it not genocide? This is not debate. This is paralysis. Can you treat that, Dr. Pratt? Can you cure paralysis?

Nurse Samantha Taggart: Good luck, you two!
Dr. Gregory Pratt: Yeah, you're gonna love it! Let's get out of here.
Nurse Samantha Taggart: I hate the NICU.
Dr. Gregory Pratt: Those guys are screwed.


"ER: I Don't (#13.21)" (2007)

"ER: Death and Taxes (#10.7)" (2003)
Dr. Gregory Pratt: Hey, what the hell you doing here?
Dr. Archie Morris: Working.
Dr. Gregory Pratt: I thought you quit.
Dr. Gregory Pratt: Oh, my dad wouldn't let me. Said he'd pull the money plug if I didn't see this thing through.
Dr. Gregory Pratt: This thing, meaning a career in medicine?
Dr. Archie Morris: Yeah.
Dr. Susan Lewis: What are you doing?
Nurse Samantha Taggart: He just grabbed my ass. Here, take this to church and have it exorcised.
Dr. Robert Romano: That's right, you keep walking! Right up to the nursing director's office 'cause by the time you get there, there'll be a pink slip waiting for you.
Nurse Samantha Taggart: Good! Give me plenty of time to file my sexual harassment lawsuit!
Dr. Robert Romano: Do you mind?
Dr. Susan Lewis: Yes, I do. You can have it back by the end of the day if you learn to behave!

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.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Maybe then you'd learn that there's more to being a doctor than ordering tests and calling consults for every patient just to cover your ass.
