Episode Quotes
Dr. Stephen Connor: Run down what we have, Dr. McCabe.
Dr. Miles McCabe: For whose benefit?
Frank Powell: Yours.

Eva Rossi: No high-end resort is going to set aside space for a clinic when they can book a room for $600 a night.

Stephen: I need a list of all the guests - who's sick, who's not, what rooms they're in, what they've been eating and drinking. I need a record of every illness documented here in the last two years, as well as every suspected case of TB on the island.
Jenny: My God, that's going to take time.
Stephen: You strike me as competent.

Stephen: Remember, there's enough fax machines and cell phones to create a panic. Let's keep this think quiet, okay?
Miles: Okay.
Frank: Got it.



Eva: So, how are things going with that hockey player?
Natalie: Excuse me?
Eva: That guy, Jeremy...Joe...
Natalie: Jordan. It's over...Why do you ask?
Eva: You don't see that many women who are beautiful and brilliant. I would think men would be all over you.

Miles: Quarantine? Don't you think that's a little drastic? This thing isn't airborne.
Stephen: The point is, we know the source is here. If the patients disperse to the mainland and the infection spreads, we won't know where to look.

Kazerian: I'm sorry. I'm not trying to be uncooperative, it's just that this has been a very trying two weeks for me. First, Elli passes away and now, the NIH thinks I have something in my gallery that's killing people.

Miles: Hey, Kim, you are not going to die. Dr. Connor is the best. I know you don't know him, but he's a brilliant man.

Gary: The healthy people are going home. The sick people are going to the hospital. As you said, it's my call.
Stephen: Your arrogrance is impressive.
Gary: Right back at ya, Doctor.

Frank: Cow feces in art. Who would've thought.
Miles: My dad always said modern art was crap.


Natalie: You're not going to give me one of your "we may have won the battle, but not the war" speeches, are you?
Stephen: I'm too tired.
Natalie: Good, because I think we did a damn good job and I don't want to hear it.





Episode References
Frank: The '76 outbreak was linked to air conditioning, wasn't it?

The 1976 outbreak infected more than 180 people and killed 29 American Legion members at the Philadelphia hotel. The disease is later named as Legionnaire's disease.



Analysis
Stephen: Get blood, urine, mantoux scratch and full history.

That is the first sign on this series where Stephen trusts Miles and want him to help out treating patients. Remember from the first episode how he doesn't quite trust Miles yet.
