"Northern Exposure: Soapy Sanderson (#1.3)" (1990)
Dr. Joel Fleischman: Apparently this is a quote from Chief Seattle dated 1852... "The president in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land. But how can you buy or sell the sky, the land? The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life. He is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web he does to himself..."
Maggie O'Connell: "... Your destiny is a mystery to us. What will happen when the buffalo are all slaughtered?" Or will some materialistic money-grubbing short-sighted sub-human sell it to other materialistic money-grubbing short-sighted sub-humans so they can ravage the land and cover it with concrete just so they can pay a few dollars less in taxes.

Maggie O'Connell: All you care about is you, and New York, and your precious career!
Dr. Joel Fleischman: Look, Mother Theresa. I did not get off the plane and say that I am Marcus Welby, kindly physician, and all around swell guy! Okay! I was fully prepared to do my time in Anchorage, but I am contractually bound to this tundra under false pretenses and against my will. So if I resort to some unscrupulous practices to right a greater wrong, look, where's Amnesty International when it comes to Joel Fleischman?

"Northern Exposure: Hello, I Love You (#5.15)" (1994)
Dr. Joel Fleischman: We're actually racing. We're having a race to stack your wood.
Maggie O'Connell: We are, aren't we?
Dr. Joel Fleischman: This is unbelievable. You know, I'll tell you something. I think we do this with everything. I think - I think everything between us becomes a competition.
Maggie O'Connell: It does?
Dr. Joel Fleischman: Yeah. Don't you think? I mean half the time we're together, we're trying to ace the other one out.
Maggie O'Connell: Well, what am I supposed to do, just let you win?
Dr. Joel Fleischman: That's what I mean. It doesn't feel healthy if somebody wins or somebody loses. Who cares?
Maggie O'Connell: Yeah. We did it the other night when we had popcorn, remember? And we got all bent as to who had the fewest old maids? That was kind of sick.
Dr. Joel Fleischman: I mean we should really be cheering each other on, reveling in each other's successes.

Dr. Joel Fleischman: What do you mean?
Maggie O'Connell: I used to think about all the billions of people in the world. And then of all those people, how was I gonna meet the right ones? You know? Like the right ones to be my friends and the one to be my husband.
Dr. Joel Fleischman: Hmm.
Maggie O'Connell: And now, I believe you meet the people you're supposed to meet.
