Episode Quotes
Evan: Babe? You didn't even know him, so you don't have to be there. (Jack's funeral)
Paige: Are you going to be there?
Evan: Yeah.
Paige: Then so will I.

Hank: There won't be any funeral. I checked with Jack's attorney and Jack's attorney checked Jack's will, it specified that he didn't want a funeral.
Divya: Well I guess that does sound like Jack.
Hank: The will prohibited moping too.

Nina: Hank you did everything you could.
Hank: Yeah then I guess there's not much too, ahhh, debrief about.

Boris: It's an intriguing idea. I'd like to vet it.
Claudette: Vet it how?
Boris: By watching you present it to a potential client.

Divya: Isn't there a difference between losing Jack and losing your mum?
Evan: Hank doesn't deal with tragedy well. The day our mom died was the day his childhood ended, and ever since then he's taken responsibility for everyone and everything and he always refused to share it. So this time I can help carry the load.
Divya: Good luck at the meeting then.

Evan: (to Divya) Please stop being so nice to me. It's making me feel very uncomfortable. Thank you.

Jill: It's not just the sadness Hank, it's also the guilt.
Hank: What do you feel guilty about?
Jill: Well I... I keep replaying the boat, over and over in my head and... the second I realized how sick he (Jack) was, why, why didn't I force him back to shore?
Hank: Jill, you got a hold of me as soon as you could, which is the only reason Nina and I were there waiting as soon as you docked. And then you got him rushed to the hospital. There was nothing else you could have done.
Jill: Thanks.

Dr. Paul Van Dyke: I got a message from Divya, ripping into me for not following up with a patient?
Evan: Grace Hay Adams. Yeah she told me. Don't sweat it, I know followup isn't really your strong suit.
Dr. Paul Van Dyke: Well that's what I came by to tell her, I did followup, with Hank.

Divya: You were right to trust your instincts, Evan. I'm proud of you.
Evan: Okay... ahh Divya? Please, you have to stop being nice to me.
Hank: Hey what are you guys yapping about over there?
Evan: Uhh, sorry, Divya was hitting on me, it was very awkward for everyone.

Hank: You used a new device on a patient without consulting me.
Evan: If I consulted you, you would have said no.
Hank: Yeah, you're right I would have because we run a medical practice, not a Sharper Image franchise.

Evan: I gave up a lot, I gave up my job, I gave up my life basically because I believed in you, I believed in my brother. When's it gonna be your turn, huh? To believe in me, even a little bit?
Hank: Evan, I'm done fighting with you about the expansion of HankMed, and not just because your timing sucks. Sorry to remind you, but I have the letters M.D., so I'm in charge.

Evan: So there's something else I haven't had a chance to tell you, Divya needed some money so I bought her shares in HankMed... which means I now own two thirds of the company.
Hank: What?
Evan: Yeah. So now that I think about it, I'm in charge.
Hank: Well you're about to increase your ownership even further, you can have my third too. But you may want to change the name of the company... I quit.

Hank: (to Jill) I want to talk about a job.

Evan: (to Paul) I want to talk about a job.

Episode References
Jill: (to Hank) I keep replaying the boat, over and over in my head and... the second I realized how sick he (Jack) was, why, why didn't I force him back to shore?

In episode 3x15, Hank And The Deep Blue Sea, Jill accompanied Jack on a fishing trip unaware he was skipping the necessary medical treatments for lupus.

This episode portrays Hank's intense need to be in control of every situation. He had stepped down as Jack's doctor to be his friend and Jack died. Hank feels intense guilt over this and is taking it out on others, including the Sesumi boys and especially Evan when Evan dares to not consult him about the smart shirts. Evan alludes to similar behavior when their mother died and Hank stopped being a child to take responsibility and control.
