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.

Haleh: And...?

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!
