(about Mr. Rutley)
Abby: Poor guy. So sad.
Luka: Ahh. He's lucky.
Luka: He doesn't have to remember losing a son every day.
(Sarah shows up at the hospital for a vaccine)
Neela: Why didn't you go to your pediatrician?
Sarah: He only takes care of little kids. Besides, I think I need a new doctor anyway. Do you know a good GYN?
Tony: Is that your history project?
Sarah: No, I'm paying the bills.
Luka: I guess uh... his urine tested negative? Pratt doesn't think he needs a CBC?
Abby: (smiling) No. I know, you think I'm acting crazy.
Luka: No, I think you are acting like a mother -- a slightly crazy one.
