Dr. Peter Benton: All they want to know about is if you've killed anybody.

Dr. John Carter: What do you tell them?

Dr. Peter Benton: Only med students.

___________________________

Jeanie Boulet: If it's bad news, you can worry about it then. Think about something else right now.

Scott Anspaugh: Like what? Rainbows and dandelions?

Dr. Robert Romano: Thanks for taking care of it, Pete.

Dr. Peter Benton: Dr. Romano... It's Peter. You called me Pete.

Dr. Robert Romano: What, nobody in your whole life's ever called you Pete?

Dr. Peter Benton: No.

Dr. Robert Romano: "Pete Benton", it sounds so natural, you gotta be kidding me.

Dr. Peter Benton: Peter. Just Peter.

Dr. Robert Romano: Huh. Wow. Petey?

Dr. Peter Benton: Peter.

Dr. Mark Greene: What Happened to your student? I thought she was gonna stick around.

Dr. John Carter: She went up to watch Benton operate. I think she got bored.

Dr. Mark Greene: We're not here to entertain, Carter.

Dr. John Carter: You know, she seemed so interested. I was supposed to inspire those students but I don't think I did a very good job.

Dr. Mark Greene: Inspire them? How?

Dr. John Carter: Through our passion. For what we do.

Dr. Mark Greene: Passion?

Dr. John Carter: Yeah, you know what I mean.

Dr. Mark Greene: Carter, you come here everyday. Sometimes you're relly cooking and sometimes you're not. But you're here everyday doing your work. One day you'll look up and, maybe, ten years will have passed. It'll be the sum total... of what you've done... that counts. Not the passion. Wanna review some of this charts?

Dr. John Carter: Yeah.
