Episode Quotes
Narrator: Our time at Kingdom Hospital is almost at an end. Some will live. Some will die. Will you join us for one more visit?

Elmer: 37 left…24 right… 36… left… The approximate measurements of my beloved, if you'd like to know.
Blondi: Big whoop.

Blondi: Hey, buddy. Psst. Try 37 left, 24 right, 36 left, then back to zero. Humans have very weird dimensions.

Dr. Abelson: Hook, is this you?
Dr. Stegman: Yes, maybe it Hook. Maybe it is. Has Hook ever had his hands on those twin dirigibles, breasts of yours? Has he ever had his hands on those Holstein buttocks of yours? Has he ever called you Sugar Pumpkin?

Dr. Abelson: You're not coming to Salem with me, are you?
Dr. Stegman: Well, I might meet you in Hell, but Salem, never! Never, you cow! You fat cow! You pelvis-equipped moving van! You're an idiot!

Limo Driver: Dr. Abelson, what should I do with your luggage?
Dr. Abelson: Page Dr. Stegman. When he arrives, bend him over the hood of his car and stick it up his fat butt, piece by piece.

Dr. Hook: Mary, you're doing this, aren't you? Disturbing the Swedenborgian flow, whatever that is. Look, if you can't help it, how can you stop it? How can we stop it?

Gottreich: Here they store what came before, pain and suffering from days of yore. Before and after, tears and laughter, after comes before, before comes after. Past and future and then, hereafter. The naked and the dead, the young and the old, their stories end here, their tales untold. Here sickness and death have left their pages, written in blood for all the ages. Someday, your story will be here, too.

Paul: Don't worry, God will take care of us. Or...
Carrie: Or?
Paul: He won't.

Christa: Now bright gold leaves turn brown and sere, this is the turning of the year.
Abel: Now the days grow dim and low, next there comes the sleet and snow.
Christa: How long before the earth shakes hard enough to destroy the hospital?
Abel: Unless something stops it, or someone, it will happen tonight. Much will happen first. For some, this will be a good day. A very good day, for some.
Christa: Some will find what has been lost.
Abel: And some are still seeking. Some will have a good day, but others, some will have a bad day.
Christa: A no-good day.
Abel and Christa: A terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day.
