Abby: (to Haleh) Everything was going really well, till the ambulance blew up.
(about Pratt's condition)
Morris: Might get worse, before it gets better.
Haleh: Did I see Luka stop by today?
Abby: Uh huh.
Abby: And I think, (pause) things are going to be okay.
Haleh: I'm glad to hear that.
(Sam and Gates arrive at the accident scene)
Sam: Abby, what are you doing here?
Abby: Wrong place, wrong time.
Abby: Something's wrong here.
Morris: (looking at Pratt's x-ray) What?
Abby: The tibia and fibula are intact.
(Morris, Gates, Abby, and Sam stare at the x-ray)
Abby: Pratt, that's not your bone sticking out.
Morris: Listen, I don't think we all need to be here. There's nothing more we can do for now. (long pause) We'll take shifts. There're a lot of patients. He would tell us to get out there and take care of business. That's what he'd say.
(before being intubated).
Pratt: Morris, don't screw this up.
(yelling into the adjacent room while being treated)
Pratt: Hey, Brenner! You better be teaching in there!
