Abby: A compass?

Luka: I know it's corny, but it seems we always find each other.


Abby: Are we spending Christmas together?

Luka: That's what you said last night.

Abby: No I didn't.

Luka(grinning) You probably don't remember other things you said last night.

Abby(blushing) Shut up.


Luka(in Santa hat) Ho-ho!

Frank: Well, look what the reindeer dragged in.

Luka: This is for you, Frank. (hands him a scarf)

Frank: Wow! Last time this hospital gave me a present was when that helicopter fell on Romano.


Clemente: 'N Sync! I didn't know you were gay.

Morris: Evil elf.

Clemente: Yeah, it's the thought that counts.


(Responding to Luka's announcement he is sending a resident home with pay)

Morris: I.. I did the manual disimpaction!

Ray: I did a pelvic on a three-hundred pounder!

Eve: Bite me!


Eve(to Sam) You went behind my back trying to get my job? Merry Christmas, Judas!


(Eve punches an obnoxious Santa in the nose for being rude to blind children caroling in the ER and then pours his urine sample on him)

Eve: Ho, ho, ho, you piece of crap!


Haleh: I'm looking for backup singers for the party tonight.

Eve: Ooh, I'll do it.

Haleh: I want someone who's gonna have my back, not stab me in it.


Frank(to Clemente, because of Jodie's continuous calls) Maybe you could work from somewhere with a different extension, like Cambodia.


(As an overweight woman is wheeled by)

Hanukkah Harry: Hey Santa how do you handle one of those on your lap?

Santa: Oh, we break out the big Santa for that one, I think I'm gonna bring her a leg tomorrow.

Eve: I might just take a leg and stick it up your...

Sam: Eve!


Frank(describing Jodie) She's kind of a looker, in an 'interstate off-ramp' kind of way.
