Episode Quotes
Hank: (speaking about Evan) He's still pissed at me for keeping him in the dark about Paige's mom.
Divya: It's a tough one, for both of you.
Hank: Yeah I still feel awful about it, I mean we've never kept secrets from each other.
Divya: Eventually Evan is going to see that you were only trying to help a family in need. He can't blame you for that. Listen sometimes, sometimes secrets are necessary.

Hank: So, tell me what happened?
Eric: Do you want the long version?
Hank: The longer the better.
Eric: So I opened the curtain and fainted.
Hank: Can you repeat that, slowly?
visual: Both laugh.

Hank: So what, did I do something else wrong?
Evan: You did pretty much everything wrong, Hank.
Hank: Okay.
Evan: Except for one thing.
Hank: And what's that?
Evan: Ellen, she's definitely not well, so you were right about that part.

Hank: What about the prescription I left, and the appointment I made for her with doctor...
Evan: Ellen's tried every drug, she's tried every type of counseling there is basically. If she's going to try treatment again it's gotta be something new.
Hank: Right.
Evan: She needs hope, like real hope.
Hank: I happen to have an old friend who specializes in that area.

Divya: What's in the city?
Jill: My successor, at least I think so. I just need to convince him.
Divya: Well good luck trying to replace yourself.

Hank: But, Mr. Kassabian is diabetic, so...
Dr. Paul Van Dyke: No oral or IV steroids, yeah yeah.
Hank: Direct nerve injection only.
Dr. Paul Van Dyke: Dr. Lawson, despite my boyish good looks, this isn't my first day playing doctor.
Hank: It isn't mine either which is why I double check the important stuff.
Dr. Paul Van Dyke: We will send him back to you just the way we found him, I promise.

Evan: Thank you sir, I'm parched.
visual: Starts coughing after drinking from the cup The General gave him.
Evan: I thought that was water.
General William Collins: Well, Scotch has some water.
Evan: You trying to kill me sir? Again?
General William Collins: No. I'm trying to thank you. This was a big success, and you were surprisingly competent.

Hank: Your wife is at Brooklyn Heights Mercy Hospital, getting prepped for E.C.T.
Evan: And now he's been looped in.
General William Collins: She doesn't need that treatment.
Hank: Sir, she does.
General William Collins: You don't even know her!
Paige: Daddy, I have spent too long standing in for her at photo ops, and dinners and book signings, too long protecting you from the truth. Now it's time to protect Mom!

Episode Goofs
Hank is wearing sterile gloves while he stitches Eric's wound. He then removes them and uses a diabetes testing device to prick his finger to get a blood sample. A medical professional would never do this.

Cultural References
While in the city, Jill needs to parallel park her car in a very tight spot. Luckily, she is driving a Toyota Prius which has automatic parallel parking, an obvious commercial within the show.

Episode References
Hank: (to Divya, speaking about Evan) He's still pissed at me for keeping him in the dark about Paige's mom.

In episode 3x09 Me First, Evan finally discovers a secret Paige has been hiding about her mother, a secret Hank knew first.

Evan: (speaking to Paige's father) You trying to kill me sir? Again?

Evan is referring to episode 2x09 Frenemies, where he and The General go hunting and Evan accidentally ends up getting shot in the backside.
