### From Wikiquote

ER (1994–2009) is a long running medical drama that follows the lives of doctors and nurses in a Chicago emergency room.

## Season 1

### 24 Hours [1.1]

Benton: Do you know how to start an IV?
Carter: Uh, actually, no.
Benton: I thought you were third year.
Carter: I am, but all I've done is dermatology and psychiatry.
Benton: The well-dressed specialties, huh?

Mark: See, there's two kinds of doctors. The kind that gets rid of their feelings. And the kind that keeps them. If you're going to keep your feelings, you're going to get sick from time to time. That's just how it works.

Mark: …by the way, I went to medical school with Dr. Benton. He used to get sick all the time. So, don't let him give you any crap. You'll be fine.

Patient: Are you married?
Susan: No, I'm a doctor.

### Day One [1.2]

Benton: [Carter gives him an H&P on a patient] Mother's maiden name?
Haleh: He's kidding.

Mark: [about Carol's suicide attempt] It's not your fault, Doug. You're going to have to forgive yourself sooner or later.

Doug: I thought you were some kind of saint. I was going to start calling you Mahatma.

### Going Home [1.3]

[Earlier in the show, Carol attempted suicide by overdosing on barbituates.]
Carol: I'm here to unload that new shipment of barbituates.
Jerry: At least you didn't kill off your sense of humor.
Carol: No, just a few brain cells.

### Hit and Run [1.4]

Carter: You ever get used to this?
Benton: Used to what?
Carter: Going on three hours sleep.
Benton: Anything more than three hours and I'm sluggish all day.

Mark: I was embraced by two men today. I find that highly unusual.
Susan: Some guys have all the luck.

Walt: [to Benton] No, don't hand me that OR crap, already know how important your job is compared to the small events of my life.

### Into that Good Night [1.5]

Mark: Pretty good shape.
Sam: Want to lend it to me for the weekend? Naw. You got better things to do with it. Do 'em all. You never know when you'll get the chance.

Carter: What's he doing?
Susan: Practicing one-handed knots. He'd do it with his teeth if he could.
Benton: No I wouldn't. You can't wear a glove on your teeth.

Sarah: My mom says my dad's gonna die.
Mark: Yes, he is.
Sarah: Why can't you fix him?
Mark: We can't fix everything.

Susan: At your age Ryan Sandberg was retired.
Doug: At my age Mozart was dead.

### Chicago Heat [1.6]

Mark: Jerry, if this guy's still here in the morning, why don't we get some shovels and bury him in the parking lot.

Rachel: Did you make him all better?
Benton: Who?
Rachel: The boy in the green room.
Benton: [to Mark] The gunshot victim.
Mark: They tried really hard, Rachel. But he died.
Rachel: Will his mommy be sad?
Rachel: [to Benton] Are you sad?
Benton: Yeah.
Rachel: If you're sad, why aren't you crying?
[Benton kneels beside Rachel.]
Benton: I am. [touches Rachel's heart.] Right here.

Rachel: If I got hurt, would you fix me?
Mark: Yes, I would.
Rachel: You wouldn't let me die?

Kanesha: He helped me be better.
Rachel: [whispers] That's what doctors do.

[A car has slammed through the ER doors.]
Doug: Jerry, call security. Somebody's in my parking space.

### Another Perfect Day [1.7]

Mark: We're going to have to do a lumbar puncture. You ever done one?
Carter: Uh no, but I've seen it done.
Mark: See One, Do One, Teach One.

### 9 1/2 Hours [1.8]

Mae Benton : Carter? You got people in Tennessee?
Carter: On my father's side.
Mae Benton : I think his people owned our people.

### ER Confidential [1.9]

Lydia: We all know that, but everyone else's busy.

### Blizzard [1.10]

[Carol is pushing a biker in a wheelchair.]
Carol: You know what we call motorcycles around here, Ace?
Patient: No. What?
Carol: Donor-cycles.
Patient: [laughs] Donor-cycles. I like that.
Carol: You would.

Morgenstern: How are we doing?
Doug: One step ahead of the Reaper.
Morgenstern: Thats all you can ask for.

Carter: Oh God, I killed Santa.

Doug: [to Carol] Tell him that you don't love me. Tell him that you don't think about me when you're with him.

### Happy New Years [1.12]

Hicks: When I was a resident, I was always worried about getting people's approval, the attendings', the patients', maybe because I was a woman, a black woman. Life was a lot easier once I got over it. Don't let the patients get to you, Dr. Lewis. We treat them as soon as we can and there's no need to apologize for how long it takes. We are a busy hospital, not a restaurant.

### Luck of the Draw [1.13]

[Deb Chen is performing a rectal.]
Carter: How's it going in there, Deb?
Chen: I'm stuck.
Carter: Deb?
Chen: Yes?
Carter: Did you use a lubricant?
Chen: Was I supposed to?

Morgenstern: That's what I love about you, Peter: Naked ambition tempered by arrogance.

Haleh: [discussing Deb's examination of an unconscious Carter] The term isn't average male genitalia, it's normal male genitalia.

Doug: [talking about Linda Farrell] Serious? Our longest phone conversation is "Get over here."

### February Fifth, 1995 [1.15]

Carter: You ever put in a foley?
Carter: You're in for a treat.

Mark: [in a noisy helicopter] Hell of a life isn't it?
Paramedic: What?
Mark: Its a hell of a life.
[The paramedic points to his ear.]
Mark: I said, I want to have sex with your wife.
[The paramedic gives a thumbs up.]

Carol: Well, you just mouth the words. That’s what I do.
Susan: Well who sings?.....
Carol: Well I’m working on that. [Carter walks by. Carol smiles, pleasently] Carter!-
Carter: No, no, no, no. Chronic tonedeaf and acute stage fright.

Gallant: You know, sometimes I don't think I can do this.
Carter: You know, there's two kinds of doctors. There's the kind that get rid of their feelings, and the kind that hold on to them. If you hold on to your feelings you're going to get sick every once in a while. It's part of it. You know, people come in here, and they're sick, and they're bleeding, sometimes they're dying.

Carter: You know, a butterfly flaps its wings in China, and creates a tornado halfway around the world.
Abby: Are you hot?
Carter: I'm just saying that there's an inherent unpredictability about everything-- evolution, life. Love, relationships.
Abby: So what am I? The butterfly or tornado?
Carter: No, you're chaos in general.
Abby: Oh, thanks.
Carter: No, I'm just saying, you're chaos to me. The unknown. I'm chaos to you.
Abby: You are hardly chaos, Carter.
Carter: I'm just saying there's a risk in anything that you do, right? But don't you want to stack the odds in your favor? I mean, I'm drawn to you. It's kind of that simple. I've been drawn to you for two years, but chaos always seems to rule, and I don't want it to rule. I want to know where it's taking me. You know what I mean?

Romano: So, what's today's excuse for Triage being a stinking, overpopulated cesspool of humanity?
Sam : The healthcare system?
Romano: Yeah, well, if things get too locked up, you can try stabbing some of these deadbeats in the neck. That ought to have them running to Northwestern.

Romano: There's nothing I find sexier than a mute girl covered in blood, so keep your head down and your mouth shut.
Sam : You remind of a guy I used to date. He's dead.

Sam : You've got one poisonous one-armed midget running this place.

Sam : Good! Give me plenty of time to file my sexual harassment lawsuit!
Romano: Do you mind?
Susan: Yes, I do. You can have it back by the end of the day if you learn to behave!

Susan: That's a good rule.

### Missing [10.09]

Luka: You sent that man up for a pulmonary angiogram?
Neela: Dr.Lewis wanted to be sure before heparinising.
Neela: I'm not sure my opinion matters.
Sam : Luka. You got a minute?
Luka: [To Neela] If you don't think it matters, then it doesn't.

Sam : Dr.Kovac! Tell me you did not put a splint on my kid's arm.
Luka: I'm sorry, but we're busy trying to find a man's finger right now.
Sam : Yeah, and the reason it's missing, is because in stead of studying here like I told him, he's off with you playing doctor.
Frank: What?!
Sam : Not like that.

Luka: I'm sorry about the splint.
Sam : Look. I appreciate you trying to be his friend. I just don't want things to get weird. You're a good guy, I'm sure. But you don't know crap about raising kids. So thanks for the help, but no thanks. I got it covered.
Luka: [ Nods ] O.k.

Carter: Honestly? [ shakes his head ]

### NICU [10.12]

[ elevator door opens ]
Nurses: Card's is waiting and Raab's is pissed. Wanna give him a pneumo?
[ The nurses, Abby and Neela roll the baby away ]

Pratt: Those guys are screwed.

### Get Carter [10.13]

Sam : You know what? Why don't save your lectures for the med students 'cause the nurses don't want to hear it.

Sam : What is it with Kovac and his holier than thou healing hands? I'm getting pretty sick of that.
Chuny: Oh, I don't know. Those healing hands have their good points. Right, Abby?
Sam : Did you go out with Kovac?
Abby: Briefly, yeah.
Sam :And Carter?
Abby: Yep.
Chuny: Abby's the ER slut.
Abby: I went out with two doctors in five years that I've worked with.

### Impulse Control [10.14]

Arnie Nadler: Hi, i want to talk about the incident with Dr. Morris.
Sam : It was no incident, it was a french fry.

Frank: You waiting for Weaver?
Sam : Yeah.
Morris: Well, don't hit her. She's crippled.
Frank: HAHAHAHAHA

### Forgive and Forget [10.16]

Neela:[to Frank] You know what? You're a horrible man. Do you think it's pleasant being greeted every day by a fusilade of homophobic, xenophobic ranting from a bigot? From now on, I expect nothing from you but silence; blissful silence.

Luka: No, it was fine.
Sam : Because, when I said before... I didn't mean we shouldn't see each other at all. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.
Luka: You want things to be casual.
Sam : Right. But if it's a choice between something serious or nothing, maybe serious is the way to go.

Luka: She has a boyfriend.
Sam : That's nice.
Luka: You said you didn't want to be exclusive!
Sam : I said it four days ago!
Luka: I forgot she was coming.
Sam : You know what, I don't care. It's fine, Luka.
Luka: It's fine?
Sam : You think I really care how many french girls you're screwing? You already nailed every nurse in the ER!

### Where There's Smoke [10.18]

Jerry: Oh, hey! Kovac called. He said next time he's gonna have a triple latte first. Does that make any sense?
Sam : [ smiles ] Yeah.
Chen: Are you two living together now?
Sam : No.
Chen: Well, for what it's worth, I think Luka's a good guy.
Sam : Oh, wait. You didn't...
Chen: ...Sleep with him? No, I went in a completely different direction (Chen waves at Pratt).

### Just a Touch [10.19]

Sam : Men only care about three things: food, sports, and sex. Dogs are more mysterious.

Morris: Sounds like he TUBE'd her.
Sam : What?
Morris: TUBE: Totally Unnecessary Breast Exam.
Sam : Morris, you're such an ass.
Kerry: What was that?
Sam: Sorry
Kerry: Not You.
Morris: Huh?
Kerry:What was that term?
Morris: I dunno. I didn't make it up.

### Drive [10.22]

Sam : We're moving.
Alex: No!
Sam : Come on, hurry up!
Alex: I don't wanna go!
Sam : Ah, you don't exactly have a choice.
Alex: I'm not going!
Sam : Yes you are.
Alex: I like it here.
Sam : Yeah? So did I.
Alex: You're just being a bitch.
Sam : What did you call me?
Alex: I'm sick of moving just because you're screwed up!
Sam : You know what I'm sick of, Alex?! I'm sick of pretending that your dad is a good guy! I'm sick of keeping my mouth shut about all the crap that he's done and all the stuff that he hasn't. And I'm sick of him tracking us down every time he loses a job, so he can come here and buy you enough presents to make you think that he's actually a father. Because he's not! He's a user, and a loser, and I am not gonna let him turn you into one too. Now get your ass in that room and start packing!

## Season 11

### One for the Road [11.01]

[ Luka leans up against his car at the motel, Sam is getting ice from the ice machine. ]
Luka: [ sighs ] What are you doing Sam?
Sam : This is what I do, you know that. I don’t stay in one place that long.
Luka: How long are you going to keep doing that?
Sam : As long as I have to.
Luka: You can’t keep running away.
Sam : Sure I can.
Luka: This isn’t just about Steve.
Sam : Sorry, sometimes there’s a little collateral damage. I have to do this for Alex.
Luka: From what I can tell, it’s not working for him.
Sam : Yeah well, he’s 10, he doesn’t know what’s working for him.
Luka: Is this the life you want for him? For yourself?
Sam : [ opens her mouth as if to say something, but is speechless ] I don’t know what else to do.
Luka: Go to your car and follow me back to Chicago. You don’t have to do this alone, I’m here, you can trust me.
[ A tear runs down Sam’s cheek. Luka pushes her hair back and caresses her face with his hand. ]

Sam : He’ll come back [ Sam moves away from Luka. ] We won’t have any idea when. Sleeping in one morning or on our way home from a movie, and he’ll just show up.
Luka: We’ll deal with that.
Sam : I don’t know why you would want to.
[ Sam looks into Alex’s room where he is sleeping ]
Luka: I can think of a reason. [ Luka closes the window. ] This place is too small. You should both come and live with me.
Sam : What?
Luka: My apartment has two floors. Alex can sleep downstairs.
Sam : Luka! If we all move in together it is going to be because it is something we all want, not because you think we need to be protected!
Luka: Hey.
[ Sam walks away and mumbles something about a shower. ]
Luka: Hey! [[[w:Samantha Taggart|Sam]] stops and turns and Luka picks up the frying pan. ] Scrambled or fried?
Sam : Poached!
Luka: Poached??

Luka: They tend to move slowly but with a relatively small range during the day.
Sam [ laughs ]: Hey, watch it!

[ Luka says goodbye to Carter. Sam give Carter a med record and follows Luka out the door and chases him down. ]
'Sam :Luka!
Luka: I thought you were still on?
Sam :For awhile, yeah. Ah, you know what you said, earlier, on the steps? [ Luka nods ] Me too. So… come on by later and I’ll make you some eggs.

### White Guy, Dark Hair [11.07]

[ Cut to Sam sorting supplies in an empty trauma room. Luka enters ]
Luka: The detective is still here.
Sam : You shouldn’t have been so dismissive of me in front of him.
Luka: You didn’t need to discuss the details of Louise’s condition. She deserves some privacy.
Sam : Yeah, and she deserves a chance to help. We have an option we haven’t even talked about.
Luka: And that is?
Sam : If we deflate the crike balloon Louise could wisper.
Luka: You want to take her off the vent?
Sam : Just for a few moments at a time.
Luka: She is requiring 100% oxygen
Sam : I take her off the vent every time I suction her and she’s fine. Come on, we both know it’s possible.
Luka: Technically, yes, but why risk it?
Sam : Because she wants to help.
Luka: She does or you do?
Sam : What is that supposed to mean?
Luka: [ a beat, softer ] You’re sensitive about these kinds of cases.
Sam : What?
Luka: You always want to stand up for women who’ve been assaulted.
Sam : And you don’t?
Luka: Of course I do. Maybe because of when you were with Steve?
Sam : Steve never raped me.
Luka: Physical abuse? Hitting you?
Sam : Oh, this has nothing to do with that.
Luka: Are you sure?
Sam : Yeah. There’s a violent rapist out there. How are you going to feel in two days, two weeks, a month from now when we get another woman like Louise in here.
[ Malik comes in and says: Hey, crit’s only 19 on your GI bleeder.Luka gives a nod to Malik ]
Sam : Go. Go.
[ Luka leaves. ]

[ Sam is preparing Louise’s body. Luka comes in and Sam notices him. Luka stands at the foot of the bed and Sam is looking at Louise’s face. ]
Luka: I thought they would have taken her by now.
Sam : Morgue’s backed up. Cororner’s backed up. Same ‘ol, same ‘ol. I thought you were with that (some medical term) kid.
Luka: Peds surgery took him up to the OR.
[ Sam starts to cry ]
Luka: Sam, you don’t need to do this.
Sam : I know.
Luka: There are other nurses.
Sam : I know.
Luka: Sam.
Sam : I shouldn’t have done it.
Luka: The contusions were severe. She could have died anyway.
'Sam : I shouldn’t have done it, Luka.
Luka: You did what you did to help the patient, Sam.
[ Pause ]
Luka: Sam?
Sam : When I deflated the balloon Louise was still so traumatized. He kept asking her all these questions and the only thing that she could remember was….. white guy, dark hair.
[ Luka walks up to Sam, standing behind her. ]
Sam : I did what I did for “white guy, dark hair.”
