Lucy Knight: What's up, were we too loud?

Dr. John Carter: No, the furniture was too on fire.


Lucy Knight: At least your residents acknowledge your existence. Mine don't even know I'm here. I get more respect from this rubber arm.


(Lydia is wearing a French maid costume)

Weaver: Oh, Lydia, I...I guess you didn't, uh, get my memo. The PM shift is not wearing costumes this year. It scares the patients.

Lydia: A lot of things have been said over the years about this set of gams, but scary isn't one of them.
