Season 17 Quotes
|Season 17 / Episode 5: - New Doctor in Town|
Kitty Russell: Living in Dodge has been the most rewarding experience of my life, but I've been so out of touch with modern medicine that when I arrived in Baltimore I felt like a schoolboy. I suddenly realized how little I know about medicine and how much has passed me by in the last twenty years... and that's why I've decided to stay on here at the university.
Newly O'Brien: This letter is the only way I know of to tell you my decision. I'll be gone from Dodge for a while. I don't know for how long, but it will not be forever. I will be back... and I'll think of you very often. I pray all of you will remember with affection, your old friend, Doc.
|Season 17 / Episode 11: - Drago|
Drago: He looks fine.
Dr. John Chapman: He is. He just started gettin' well right after you talked to him. You know, Drago, as a doctor it might help me if I knew what you said to him.
Drago: I just told him there weren't no catfish in heaven.
