Frank: Is this great or what? Empty chairs. Empty racks. Nothing like sub-Arctic temperatures to keep the freaks at home.
Mark: Why is the thermostat in the lounge set at 56?
Frank: Get used to it, we are heading into another ice age. That's what killed the dinosaurs.
Mark: Ice age didn't kill the dinosaurs. It was cholesterol.
Abby (to Gallant): I am not your Attending. I'm not a Resident. I'm a nurse. You want me to assess a patient, you want me to push meds, you want me to check vitals, explain the situation to a family member, fine. What I will not do is carry you through med school. You want to be a doctor, start acting like one.
Carter (to Eleanor): I got stabbed! I got stabbed in the back! Where the hell were you? You were the same place you've been my entire life. You were someplace else!
Eleanor: We came back three weeks later. We were stuck in Tokyo. You said you were fine.
Carter: I wasn't fine. I wasn't okay.
Eleanor: Are you gonna blame me for taking drugs?
Carter: No, I am blaming you for not being my mother! Bobby died and I lost a mother.
