First Scene/words

Ric: I was hoping for better. “Nursing practises out of date, bad communications, protocol, mortality rates…” I’d say that’s a pretty clear critisism of my managing style as clinical director.

Zubin: You’re far too sensitive.

Ric: I don’t remember anyone telling Anton Meyer that his intradepamental skills were lacking.

(Carly)

Last Scene/words

Kath: Why don’t you just say what’s on everybody’s mind?

Ric: Oh Kath, no one thinks that you…

Kath: Yes they do! I killed my husband, I’m responsible for Sarah Palmer’s death, I’ve probably killed Stella Chadwick and all the others! Do you know what they call me?

Ric: Kath! Just calm down.

Kath: Angel of death! That’s what the papers said. I’m an embarrassment to the hospital, to the ward, to you!

Ric: That’s not true.

Kath: Don’t tell me that you don’t regret the day that you gave me those prescriptions for Terry.

Ric: Kath, you’re getting a little hysterical. Helen, she was just trying to play the devil out of the dungeon, trying to get a reaction out of you!

Kath: She’s got one, I’m leaving.

Ric: Kath, don’t do this!

Kath: You’re getting my resignation in the morning.

[Kath walks away]
