Pete: Myka! Guess how many croissants I shoved into my mouth at once.
Dr. Kelly Hernandez: One day you'll have to tell me how you got partnered up with that one.
Myka: Well, the croissant thing's actually kind of impressive when you see it.
Dr. Kelly Hernandez: Yeah, at least it keeps him from talking.
Pete: Oh, that's right. You prefer your males to bark and hump your leg.
Dr. Kelly Hernandez: I'm sure it's in your repertoire.
Dr. Vanessa Calder: Given your proclivity to appendicitis, I really still think we should remove it again.
Dr. Vanessa Calder: Just prophylactically.
Pete: (snickering) "Prophylactically."
Artie: Shut up.
Pete: Maybe I'm wrong, but... are Vanessa and Artie sitting in a tree?
Artie: Ah, don't be absurd. We're two adults who just have a lot of professional respect for each other. And shut up.
Pete: K-I-S-S-I-N-G. I knew it! Newsflash: Artie is human.
Artie: Walk away.
Pete: You like her.
Artie: Stop it.
Pete: You want to hug her and kiss her...
Artie: I'm walking away.
Pete: ...and squeeze her. And all right! (slaps Artie's butt)
Artie: Don't touch me there.
Claudia: She's good.
Myka: Yeah, sure, in an obvious kind of way.
Claudia: Worked on Pete in London.
Myka: Well, that's not exactly scaling Mt. Everest, is it?
Pete: You, sir, have been growing back your appendix in an attempt to get Vanessa to visit the warehouse! That's so romantic.
Artie: Are you quite finished?
Pete: If only...
Artie: So, "no," then.
Pete: ...there were some way for you to... interact with Vanessa that did not involve invasive surgery. Perhaps some kind of... I don't know, social ritual. One involving the sharing of food or the enjoying of filmed entertainment with maybe some duds that have been milked. Ahh. I mean a date.
Artie: I know what you mean.
Myka: A grappling hook?
Helena: I designed it myself. What?
Myka: Nothing. It 's just a little old fashioned.
Helena: Well, it wasn't when I invented it. And it seems to have saved your life. And yet you're still wondering if I set this whole thing up just to prove my innocence.
Myka: Well, the thought did cross my mind somewhere between, "Holy crap, I'm going to die," and, "Oh, I'm flying!"
Helena: And what have you concluded?
Myka: The jury's still out.
Myka: Why were you bronzed?
Helena: The scales that Lady Justice holds are more easily tipped than one knows. The world is never as you think it should be.
Pete: Look, Doc Owens is out of town. His appendix is about to burst. so it's either the vet or the barber.
Dr. Kelly Hernandez: An appendectomy? You do realize that most of the operations I perform are spaying and neutering?
Artie: Okay, the barber. The barber.
Artie: You don't have to miss out on having a real life like I did.
Pete: I'd be honored to have a a life like yours.
Artie: I'd be honored if you'd try for a little more.
Myka: Hey, you. How do you feel?
Claudia: Did I combust?
Claudia: If that guy made me combust, I'm gonna be pissed.
Pete: I've been thinking that, uh, you know, sometimes... I can be kind of obnoxious in a fun and entertaining way and since it's already come up, you did mention that I was cute. Although now that I think of it, bunny rabbits and kittens are cute, so maybe it wasn't the compliment that I thought.
Dr. Kelly Hernandez: Fine. Eating at the same table... but noting more and don't get any ideas.
Pete: I almost never do.
Dr. Kelly Hernandez: Chinese place on Main and we're going Dutch.
Pete: Couldn't we go to the Dutch place on Fifth and go Chinese?
Dr. Kelly Hernandez: Come on, Slappy, before I change my mind.
