Dubenko: You know what really relaxes me?
Wexler: Oh yeah?
Dubenko: Yeah. After a couple of long hours in the OR, a few poses can really mellow me out.
Wexler: I'm not into yoga. (rips his shirt open)
Dubenko: (gasps) No.
Wexler: When it comes to relationships, I guess you could say I have a 'fluid' attitude.
Wexler: When I'm with someone, I'm with them and when I'm not, I'm not.
Dubenko: 'Love the one you're with'.
Wexler: So if you can handle a relationship with no strings, sex with no commitments...then we're cool. (gauges his reaction) Does that freak you out?
Dubenko: No, I'm all good.
(after happening upon Abby and Luka when they are arguing).
Dawn: Not too awkward.
Grady: Is that Dr. Kovac?
Dawn: Yeah... He's a great guy.
Grady: I thought he'd be taller.
(on being appointed Acting Chief of Emergency Medicine)
Wexler: Dr. Anspaugh, all I want is to do my shifts and get the hell out of Dodge.
Anspaugh: Dr. Wexler, I need you to step up! So it's either Dodge, or nothing!
Tony: Hey, you know what? Why don't I pick you girls up some videos, maybe some pizza, ice cream...
Sarah: Cool! You're the best.
Gates:Yes. Yes I am...
Sarah: Oh, you should know. Steffi is a vegan, Kiki has a soy allergy and Mary Claire is lactose intolerant.
Tony: What's left to eat? Air?
Sam: How's Sarah?
Tony: Driving me crazy. She's having a sleepover, and it's like she's planning the invasion of Normandy.
