Dr. Cate Banfield: When your parents are gone, you're an orphan. Your spouse dies, you're a widow or widower. But when you lose your baby... there's no word for that.
Dr. Tony Gates: Can I hug you? I wanna hug you.
Dr. Cate Banfield: You try that and you'll be the one with a traumatic injury.
Mark Greene: [to Cate] Listen, I need you to be the mom now and I'll be the doctor. It works best that way.
Dr. Cate Banfield: [to Sandra] I've been doing this too long to make promises, but I'll tell you losing control is not going to help her. If that's what you gotta do, do it outside. In here, you be the mom, you be calm, you put energy into helping your girl fight back because that's what she needs.
Neela Rasgotra: [to Andrew] It's your job to decide what needs to be considered and when to speak up. If you're submissive when someone's life's on the line, you're not ready...
Dr. Andrew Wade: I try to speak up and nobody listens!
Russell Banfield: [to Cate about their son] You said this was a fever. You said he didn't need anything!
Dr. Cate Banfield: Ninety-nine out of a 100 times...
Russell Banfield: [interrupts her] Stop talking like a doctor. That's our son, damn it!
Mark Greene: [to Cate after the death of their son] I know, uh, nothing I can say will probably mean much to you right now, but I've seen enough grief in my life to know how devastating it can be, how hard it can be to find the resilience...
Archie Morris: [to Cate] Your son died in this ER and you're working here?
Dr. Cate Banfield: I'm not sure why I've done anything I've done since that day. Why'd I not leave my apartment for almost 2 years? Then I see the news about the tsunami and I fly to a place 10 thousand miles away. Why'd I do that? Why'd I come back? Why did my son have leukemia? I never understood any of it.
Dr. Cate Banfield: [to Russell] I used to think every day that if God told me I could die and go to heaven and be with Daryl, I would do it. I wondered if that made me an awful person that I'd give up my life with you, give up everything we could still have in the future. I never really got away from the feeling like I need to be with him, dreaming of him. Never got away from the idea that somehow I'd be able to hold him again.
[pictures Daryl outside on a beautiful, sunny day, running towards her into her arms, and the two of them are smiling and laughing]
Dr. Cate Banfield: I've... I've been so afraid for so long. I don't want to be... afraid... anymore.
[breaks down and cries softly as Russell comforts her]
