Night Nurse (1931)
Lora Hart: I'll kill the next one that says ethics to me.
Maloney: Says you.
Lora Hart: Yea, says me in a big way, sister.
Lora Hart: I'll call the doctor.
Nick, the Chauffeur: Listen, you'll do what I tell you.
Lora Hart: What are you trying to do? What he did?
Nick, the Chauffeur: No, but you're not gonna call a doctor. You're a nurse, you give her the works yourself.
Lora Hart: I can't, except under doctor's orders.
Nick, the Chauffeur: Oh, yes you can, and what's more, you will.
[Nick squeezes her wrist tightly]
Lora Hart: I can't very well with a broken wrist.
[Lora picks up the phone]
Lora Hart: Operator, operator, get me a doctor quick!
Nick, the Chauffeur: Hang up, or I'll break your neck.
Lora Hart: What right have you to?
Nick, the Chauffeur: Plenty.
Mrs. Ritchey: Oh, be quiet!
Nick, the Chauffeur: Ah, shut up!
Mrs. Ritchey: Oh, don't be sore, Nicky, Kiss me.
Nick, the Chauffeur: [to Lora] Get busy.
Lora Hart: I tell you I can't without the proper authority.
Nick, the Chauffeur: I give you the authority.
Lora Hart: [into the phone] Operator! Operator! Operator!
[Nick hangs up the phone and knocks her unconcious]
Maloney: Say, I was afraid the hospital would burn down before I could get into it. Now I have to watch myself with matches.
Lora Hart: [to Dr. Bell] Oh, ethics... ethics... ethics! That's all I've heard. Isn't there any ethics about letting poor little babies be murdered?
Dr. Milton A. Ranger: The successful nurse is one who keeps her mouth shut.
Maloney: Take my tip and stay away from interns. They're like cancer... the disease is known but not the cure.
Maloney: [Seeing Lora in a nurse's uniform] Gee, you look like an ad for Sloane's Liniment.
Maloney: There's only one guy in the world that can do a nurse any good and that's a patient with dough! Just catch one of them with a high fever and a low pulse and make him think you saved his life and you'll be getting somewhere.
