Episode Quotes
Jane Cameron: This cramp was from basic runner error. Never sprint after distance, even if you are being outpaced by a girl.

Evan: Paige, you're really good. You're really, really good.
Paige: Thank you.
Evan: Yeah, and you can paint too.
visual: Paige punches Evan in mock anger.

Marisa: (to Jill and Divya) It's okay to be skeptical, he is a doctor, I am a doctor, and I am telling you, you do not want to date a doctor.

Ellen Collins: Is that her (Paige's) portfolio?
Evan: Yes
Ellen Collins: She's so gifted.
Evan: I know. I know she's like the best artist I've ever met.
Ellen Collins: I'm glad you noticed. That's more than I can say for her other boyfriend.
Evan: By other you meant previous, right Mrs. Collins?

Boris: What does medicine say about the irony of one's incurable disease commencing just as one has something to live for?
Hank: It says don't jump to conclusions.

Hank: You can't allow yourself to be isolated and terrorized by your illness.
Boris: I am not afraid of my illness Hank, I am afraid someone is after my son.

Jane Cameron: You want me to run on that thing? (pointing at treadmill)
Hank: I uh, that was, thinking... uhh, why is it sacrilege?
Jane Cameron: Like eating sugar free carob in a world of Belgian chocolate. Besides it's when I'm in the sun that my core temp goes kaphooey.
Hank: Lucky for you I happen to have a gizmo that will measure your kaphooey level.

Evan: I didn't mean to expose you, I just...
Paige: You exposed yourself too.
Evan: What do you mean by...
visual: Evan turns to see the nude painting of himself.
Evan: Oh, good Nelly!

Hank: Oh my God, oh my God. (walks over to the nude painting of Evan) Oh my God! Wait wait, someone bought this?
Divya: Oh wow, that is really detailed!
Hank: Like an accident, you want to look away, but you, you can't.

Hank: (to Evan) Do you call that forced perspective or wishful thinking?

Hank: None of these symptoms line up with your illness, the differential is ex...
visual: Hank glances at his hand covered with Boris' blood.
Boris: What?
Hank: Paresthesia. My fingertips are tingling from touching your blood.
Boris: Why would that be?
Hank: These aren't symptoms of your disease, you've been poisoned!

Boris: Are you suggesting that I may have inherited a mutation but not a disease?
Hank: It's worth considering. For now rest, no more questions.
Boris: I have one question, where is Dieter?

Cultural References
Jane Cameron: Like eating sugar free carob in a world of Belgian chocolate.

The beans from the carob tree are used as a substitute for chocolate as a current dietary fad.

Episode References
Marisa: Tell us about your date.
Divya: Okay, it is not a date, do not listen to Jill. It is a colleague thank you.

In episode 3x07 Ta Da For, Dr. Van Dyke asked Divya out to dinner after chewing her out for not consulting him on one of his patients.

Boris: (to Hank) The hit on my car, which Miss Casey deduced correctly was not an accident suggest my adversaries my attempt a kidnapping to leverage their position, no?

In episode 3x04 The Shaw/Hank Redemption, Jill was riding in Boris' limousine when the car was intentionally rammed by an unknown but German speaking party.
