Day For Knight [5.01] edit

Corday: (to Lucy) Now, don't let the residents abuse you. You're here to learn, not to be their indentured servant.
Weaver (to Lucy): So, I haven't had much of a chance to work with you today. I trust everything is going well?
Lucy: Yes. You know, pretty well for a first day.
Weaver: In other words, it's been completely hateful, huh?
Lucy: Did I say the wrong thing?
Greene: In general, it's probably not a good idea to show up the residents.
Lucy: So, I should give the wrong answer?
Greene: Tricky, isn't it?
Chuny: Welcome aboard.

Split Second [5.02] edit

Lucy: Right, Dr. Carter?
Jerry: Please don't call him Dr. Carter. We'll never be able to live with him.
Lucy: What should I call you?
Jerry: He's just...Carter.
Carter: Dr. Carter will be fine.
Weaver (to Greene): You know, I think it's a wise move for you. Great research opportunities in EMS.
Greene: Well, I'm actually more interested in coordinating paramedic care.
Weaver: And for once, you and I would not be in competition. Field work was never my forte.
Greene: You wouldn't want this job, Kerry. There's no money, no power, no glory.
Weaver: Yeah, right. It doesn't fit into my Machiavellian scheme to rule the Emergency Department.
Romano: I couldn't do it, work with family.
Corday: Robert, you can't work with anyone.
Olbes (to Greene): Hold on. Are you telling me that the EMS Medical Director is a real person?
Greene: He's an ER doc.
Olbes: Huh. I thought it was just a name they stuck on the top of memos.
Greene: Not when I do it.

They Treat Horses, Don't They? [5.03] edit

Greene: You need to make a decision, Kerry. Do you want to be a doctor or an administrator? I'm going to go examine a horse.

Ross: [after reading from Weaver's performance review of him]: That's right, Kerry. I'm a psycho.

Randi: [Stares at Carters beard]
Carter: What?
Randi: You're starting to look kinda mythical.

Vanishing Act [5.04] edit

Weaver: I never know how to answer that question about my weaknesses.
Greene: Yeah. Well, I could've helped you out there.

Romano: [to Corday] You can wear the long coat; it looks better on you.

Masquerade [5.05] edit

Carter: Okay, party's over; you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here!
Lucy: What's wrong, was the music too loud?
Carter: No, the furniture was too on fire.

Stuck On You [5.06] edit

Dr. Parks: Do you know any deaf people, Dr. Benton?
Benton: No. No, I don't.
Dr. Parks: Have you ever thought that being deaf might not be so terrible?
Benton: So, you're saying there's no problem?
Dr. Parks: You can never know what it's like to be deaf. Just like I can never know what it's like to be black.
Benton: I don't look at me being black as a burden. That's who I am.
Dr. Parks: And I don't look at my deafness as a burden. That's who I am. If you turn away from your son's deafness, you will be robbing him of his identity.
Benton: My son has a medical problem. I'm not turning away from anything. I'm trying to fix it.

Hazed and Confused [5.07] edit

Amanda Lee: If you don't mind me saying, I'm one of the baddest ER bitches out there.

The Good Fight [5.08] edit

Carter [to Lucy]: Some patients get to you more than others, I know. But when you do everything that you can, sometimes even more than you thought you could, you've got to walk away knowing you fought the good fight. You fought the good fight, Lucy. Tomorrow you'll fight another one.

Good Luck, Ruth Johnson [5.09] edit

Weaver: Carter! I am not your mother! Now, for the last time, get up!

Drunk: 100 bottles of beer on the wall, 100 bottles of beer take one down pass it around 100 bottles of beer on the wall.
Jerry: I've never heard one go on this long.
Lydia: Seems like forever.
Jerry: He can't even count, never drops to 99, 98, just back to 100.
Haleh: So you don't mind that he's loud and smells bad, just that he can't sing the song right.
Lydia: 100 bottles of beer on the wall... Sorry it's catchy.
Haleh: Who's on?
Jerry: General Lee but she's in a meeting with Anspaugh.
Lydia: I hope you aren't calling her that to her face.
Jerry: Our new chief of emergency services, would I do something like that?
Haleh: We need to pop this guy some adivan and put him out of our misery.
Jerry: Yes I believe there is someone asleep in the on call room.
Haleh and Lydia: Wake them up.
Jerry: I can't leave the desk.
Haleh: Then find someone that can wake them up.
Lydia: We've got work to do.

Carol: Mark time to get up.
Mark: I'll be right there...
Carol: Mark let's go it's 7:00.
Mark: I'm up, I'm up.
Doug: Hey Mark I don't want to have to throw cold water on you.
Mark: Oh, Doug is that you.
Doug uses an air horn to wake him up

Doug: Hey you about ready.
Mark: About Deaf, that wasn't really necessary Doug.
Doug: Well I know but I do it to Carol every morning.

The Miracle Worker [5.10] edit

Romano: You're a resident, Peter. You don't take a piss without asking permission.

Tony: [answering the phone] ER. If you're sick, we'll fix you quick.

Choosing Joi [5.13] edit

The Storm, Part 1 [5.14] edit

[Talking about the Titanic with Lucy and Dale]
Carter: Leonardo DiCaprio, hoop skirts, and tragic love is kinda my idea of hell on earth.

Kerry: What about Ross?
Romano: Take him out back and shoot him.

Kerry: [To Jerry] Damn it, Jerry, if you don't stop watching TV, I'm gonna rip it off the wall with my bare hands and beat you to death with it.

The Storm, Part 2 [5.15] edit

Carter: Oh, Chuny. Hi.
Chuny: Hi.
Carter: You got a minute?
Chuny: Sure. What's up?
Carter: Umm. Earlier, with Lucy and I. I'm sure that you have your suspicions about what we were doing in there. But, actually, we were just..
Chuny: Knocking boots?
Carter: What?
Chuny: Doing the old nasty? Hey, the more the merrier, I say.
Carter: Actually we weren't doing anything.
Chuny: Mm-hmm.
Carter: I mean, she's a med student, you know? I'm a..resident.
Chuny: That stuff happens all the time.
Carter: Lucy's like- Lucy's like a little..sister, or something, to me.
Chuny: Ah. You do that with your little sister?
Carter: Nothing happened! We didn't do anything! Do you - Do you hear what I'm tell - and besides, I already have a girlfriend.
Chuny: Ahh. That insurance lady?
Carter: She's a financial advisor.
Chuny: Hm.
Carter: Roxanne and I have a lot in common.
Conni: Units are pulling up!
Chuny: She's too pushy, you know. Always trying to sell you something. I'd stick with Lucy. You two make a cute couple.
Carter: We are not a couple!

Kerry: Are there seatbelts on the bus?
Mark: No.
Kerry: We've got airbags in every new car in America, but we're sending our kids off like lambs to the slaughter.

Middle of Nowhere [5.16] edit

[When Jeanie's nose is bleeding and Peter reaches out with a tissue]
Jeanie: Peter, don't touch me, for God's sake! I'm poison.

Sticks and Stones [5.17] edit

Corday: Mark's just trying to be a friend in that endearing slightly-inept-male kind of way.

Point of Origin [5.18] edit

Corday: I've found a way to limit my Romano exposure.
Benton: Oh, yeah, what's that? Garlic?

Weaver [while treating a woman who gave birth in the street]: Did they find the placenta?
Paramedic: She said a dog ate it.
Haleh: Oh, lord.

Rites of Spring [5.19] edit

Carter (to Lucy): Are you back with us?
Lucy: No, I'm still on Psych.
Carter: Well, you'll be back doing real medicine soon, so don't get too used to the cush life.
Lucy: Yeah, I won't.

Power [5.20] edit

[Romano has just started operating when the power goes out]
Romano: Wish I hadn't just made that incision...

Carol: I mean, do we even pretend to be living in a democracy anymore? It's just a medieval power play between career Republicans and Democrats and who hates who more. If there were still guillotines and burning at the stake, I swear they'd be doing that too.

Carol: I need to fax this.
Jerry: Be my guest. Or do you want me to...?
Carol: Oh, no thanks, it's kind of personal. I'll do it myself if that's okay.
Jerry: Do I look like Kerry Weaver?

Romano (to Haleh): What? You didn't think I had a mother, did you?
Haleh: Just trying to picture her.

Responsible Parties [5.21] edit

Carter: (to Chuny) I keep my love life out of the work place, thank you very much.
Jerry: Since when?

A drunk causes his gurney to tip over causing these FBI guys to over react, and draw their guns.
Mark: Whoa Whoa relax this happens all the time, just relax.

Getting To Know You [5.22] edit

(While Carol is having an ultrasound)
Carol: What? Mark, what?
Mark: Heartbeat.
Carol: Yes, Mark, Elizabeth already said that. What?
Elizabeth: No, what he means is... there's another heart beat.
Carol: (shocked) Twins?!

Mark: Elizabeth, I don't know, I don't know what's going to happen...but I do know how I feel and I feel like I've found something amazing, and I want to be here. I want to get to know you. We cannot be scared. I would hate to miss another boat. (they kiss for the first time)
