Quotes

Dr. Eve Sheridan: [about mopping to the janitor] I know you've been doing it your way since you got here, but your way doesn't get into the corners.
Richard: Who goes into the corners?
Dr. Eve Sheridan: Germs, Richard. Please, just do it my way.
Richard: You're the boss.
Dr. Eve Sheridan: I'd like you to do it because you agree with me, not because I'm the boss.
Richard: Whatever you say.
Dr. Eve Sheridan: Richard, that's the wrong attitude.
Richard: Look, Doc, I get the least amount of pay for the dirtiest job in the hospital. Let me have my attitude. I know it's rotten, but it's all I've got.

I miss those characters
24 September 1999 | by NozzSee all my reviews

I don't really remember the plots of the episodes, but I remember the continuing characters and I miss them. There was the beautiful little Filipina clerk who would suddenly snap at anyone who approached closer than the warning line that was painted on the floor, and I miss the adorable pediatric nurse who had a crush on the handsome doctor, and I miss the insouciantly fat lady, who was all about breaking the stereotype years before the fat lady lawyer did it on "The Practice," and I miss the Lou Rawls theme song. It was almost a parody of the way any theme song seems to be required to turn the title into a love metaphor: "I've got a real emergency here," he sang, but of course in the song the emergency is how smitten he is.
