Main Characters in this Episode
Abby Lockhart: It's all in the wrist.
Dr. Luka Kovac: I think I pulled a muscle.
Abby Lockhart: I think we should take a break.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Draft please, Abby?
Abby Lockhart: Club soda.

Abby Lockhart: Your hotel?
Dr. Luka Kovac: Yeah. I don't own it. I just live there.
Abby Lockhart: You live in a hotel?
Dr. Luka Kovac: Yeah, as a doctor. I take care of the tourists. They give me a break on the rent. [Abby laughs] No! It's a good deal! Maid service, laundry, amenities. [Abby gives him a pensive look] No, no! It's great. You'll have to come see it.
Abby Lockhart: Your hotel room.
Dr. Luka Kovac: Yeah. I mean, I mean no. I mean yes. I mean... I'd never ask such a thing from a lady. Especially after just one kiss.
Abby Lockhart: [Abby Grins] No, I should hope not.

Abby Lockhart: That's because I scored very quickly. You're a bad sport.
Dr. Luka Kovac: I can't handle losing to a girl.
Abby Lockhart: Oh, God.
Dr. Luka Kovac: I'm kidding. I actually enjoy losing to you, Abby.
Abby Lockhart: Good, that's much better.
