Nurse Wendy Goldman: This pamphlet says that 40% of all doctors don't wash their hands between patients.
Dr. Doug Ross: No kidding.
Nurse Wendy Goldman: Yeah. And medical personnel pick their noses on average of three times an hour. And many interns only bathe twice a week -
Dr. Doug Ross: [interrupting] Wendy, there's a limit on how well-informed I want to be.
Dr. Angela Hicks: Change in plans. Simon's got the gunshot. We're doing the appy.
Dr. John Carter: The appy?
Dr. Angela Hicks: Disappointed?
Dr. John Carter: Yeah. They're kind of boring.
Dr. Angela Hicks: You haven't seen the patient yet.
[Carter looks out the window and sees Dr. Benton being wheeled down the hall on a gurney]
Dr. John Carter: Ohhhhhhhh there is a God!
Jerry Markovic: This is ridiculous. I do not need hand-washing lessons!
Dr. Greg Fischer: Scrub hard Jerry, to scrape off the bacteria.
Jeanie Boulet: But the most important thing is to wash your hands after you go to the bathroom.
Jerry Markovic: What, every time?
Dr. Nina Pomerantz: Mark, this is Polly McKenzie. My old friend Polly, Mark Greene.
Polly McKenzie: I know. Mark and I are seeing each other. We were supposed to have dinner tonight, but he came down with the flu, poor baby.
Dr. Nina Pomerantz: That's funny, I thought we were having drinks.
Heather Morgan: Gee, was that drinks before or after the basketball game?
Polly McKenzie: [incredulous] You're not sick.
Dr. Mark Greene: No, but I'm starting to feel a little nauseous...
[Dr. Carter is performing an appendectomy on Dr. Benton]
Dr. John Carter: I am ready to close.
Dr. Angela Hicks: Nice work, Carter.
Dr. John Carter: Thanks. Maybe I'll staple my name into his belly.
Nurse Chuny Marquez: I thought you had a date.
Dr. Mark Greene: Canceled.
Nurse Chuny Marquez: They busted you?
Dr. Mark Greene: They busted me.
Nurse Chuny Marquez: Men are so stupid. How many women were you dating when you were with me?
Dr. Mark Greene: Just you.
Nurse Chuny Marquez: Really?
Dr. Mark Greene: Yeah, you know, except for that night when my neighbor, the ballerina, broke up with her boyfriend. You know, I had to comfort her.
Nurse Chuny Marquez: Yeah, so that was like a public service.
Dr. Mark Greene: Yeah, other than that, I was totally faithful.
Nurse Chuny Marquez: Oh, I feel blessed.
