Nurse Abby Lockhart: [about Luka and Carter] They really are a pair of freaks.
Dr. Susan Lewis: They really are.
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. Susan Lewis: When you find out why I was over there, you are going to feel *very* small. We're friends. He needed me there.
Dr. John Carter: Friends?
Dr. Susan Lewis: Yes, friends, which is more than I'll be able to say about us if you keep this up.
[Debating the finer points of reality TV vs. classic TV]
Dr. John Carter: I just think that TV is a vast wasteland.
Abby Lockhart: Oh I'm *sorry* I meant to watch 'La Boheme' on PBS last night but I had to go the symphony.
Dr. John Carter: I watch television, just not that dehumanizing crap. Seriously, what's next? Televised executions? Bear Baiting? Torture Channel?
Dr. John Carter: How did I make a fool of myself?
Dr. Susan Lewis: Well, you participated in a duel, for one.
Michael Gallant: We were told to report to room 224 at 0800. I'm here, and I'm gonna stay here until someone in charge tells me to do otherwise. And I suggest you all do the same.
Dr. John Carter: 0800? This ain't the Marines, Gallant. At ease.
Michael Gallant: What does your dad do, Dr. Lewis?
Dr. Susan Lewis: My dad?
Michael Gallant: Yeah.
Dr. Susan Lewis: He's a test pilot for Barcalounger.
Michael Gallant: Dr. Carter.
Dr. John Carter: What?
Michael Gallant: What does your dad do?
Dr. Susan Lewis: Spends the family trust fund.
Nurse Abby Lockhart: How did you manage to last this long without some girl marrying you?
Dr. John Carter: We come with a built-in gold-digger alarm. My grandmother installs them at birth.
Dr. Susan Lewis: And I haven't set it off? You'd better have that thing checked.
Dr. John Carter: Everybody assumes when you grow up with money, everything's great.
Dr. Susan Lewis: Yeah, it must have been hard growing up in the mansion. Was Gamma too cheap to heat the pool?
[about when she lost her virginity]
Nurse Abby Lockhart: I was terrified. So was he. It was the longest 20 seconds of my life.
Dr. Susan Lewis: 20 seconds?
Nurse Abby Lockhart: Yeah, if you counted foreplay.
Dr. John Carter: How about those Bears?
Dr. Luka Kovac: Sorry, I don't watch American football.
Dr. John Carter: Well. I think if they beef up their defense they'll be real contenders this year.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Oh.
[looks hopefully at Carter]
Dr. Luka Kovac: I like basketball, let's talk about the Bulls.
Dr. John Carter: The Bulls stink.
Dr. Susan Lewis: [Luka and Carter are fencing after Carter discovers the closet is full of gear] . Do you think they're trying to impress us?
Nurse Abby Lockhart: If they are it isn't working.
Dr. Susan Lewis: [laughing] And to think you slept with both of them.
Nurse Abby Lockhart: [shaking her head] I never slept with Carter.
Dr. Susan Lewis: [looking surprised] I thought you had!
Nurse Abby Lockhart: That was a rumor Carter started.
Dr. Susan Lewis: Oh, that's low.
Nurse Abby Lockhart: I thought so.
Dr. Susan Lewis: [Carter is upset that Susan, who he is dating, stayed on Mark's couch a few nights before. Carter is also desperately in love with Abby at this point] We're friends, friends! Which is more than I can say for us if you don't knock this off. I slept on the couch!
[looks at Abby]
Dr. Susan Lewis: He thinks I slept with Mark.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Abby's been staying with me and nothing's happened.
[everybody turns and stares at him]
Dr. Luka Kovac: What?
