Ric Griffin Quotes
|Season 13 / Episode 30: - My Bad|
Antoine Malick: Mr Griffin, I don't know what you heard about me, but I'm good. I'm the best.
Ric Griffin: The best?
Antoine Malick: With a few exceptions.
Ric Griffin: You honour me.
Antoine Malick: No, no, the pleasure's all mine.
Ric Griffin: Do go on.
Antoine Malick: You're a legend and it's a privilege to be working with you.
Ric Griffin: Have you got one of these? You're gonna need one. You're *so* far up my backside, it's got to be dark in there!
Antoine Malick: Look, I just want to show you what I can do.
Ric Griffin: What, a couple of hernia ops and a stomach ulcer aren't challenging enough for your superhuman skills?
Antoine Malick: Not for The Malick, any more than it would be for The Griffin.
Ric Griffin: First of all, Antoine, I will not and or ever will be referred to as The Griffin. Secondly, while you are on my ward, you will treat every patient with the care that they deserve. No-one is beneath you here.
Antoine Malick: I know that.
Ric Griffin: They you'd better understand this. There is no room for the maverick Malick on Keller Ward. You carry on like some kind of self-styled super-hero, and your first day *will* be your last.
|Season 13 / Episode 24: - Second Coming|
Ric Griffin: What day is it?
Jess Griffin: Tuesday.
Ric Griffin: Tuesday's child. That makes him Kobina. Kobina Jacob Griffin, I'm Kobina Eric Griffin. Very pleased to meet you.
|Season 13 / Episode 18: - Blue Valentine|
Ric Griffin: Six thousand names on this list. Mine's just one of them. Do I *really* deserve it more than any of these people?
Donna Jackson: No, you don't. But you also didn't deserve to get cancer in the first place, any more than my dad did or Ruby did. So what are you going to do? Just get a pin and pick a name at random? You're probably right: there probably *are* people on this list who deserve it more than you, and I'm sure there's plenty that don't. But I'll tell you one thing: I bet there's not one name out of these six thousand that's even half as infuriating as you are. By the way, you should check your email once in a while.
Ric Griffin: Why?
Ric Griffin: What did you say to her?
Donna Jackson: Nothing. She had her 32-week scan yesterday and I thought you might like to see it.
Donna Jackson: *That's* why you deserve it. *That's* your future. Even if you are too much of a stubborn old git to see it for yourself.
|Season 12 / Episode 51: - A Failure To Communicate|
Sacha Levy: [gathering the team around him] Our new consultant's got a few more words she'd like to say.
Jac Naylor: [diffidently] Erm. Today hasn't been the greatest of starts. But I promise you tomorrow will be better. In the meantime I'd just like to apologise unreservedly to Mr Griffin for any comments I made in public that may have caused upset or offence.
Mark Williams: Ric?
Ric Griffin: [after a pause] Thank you, Miss Naylor. But I neither *need* nor *want* your apology, however sincere. This job should not be about ego or personal feuds - this job is simply about saving lives. You do that job, you treat your staff and patients with decency and respect, and we'll have no problem. OK, everyone, shall we get back to work?
|Season 12 / Episode 26: - Enemies Closer|
Jac Naylor: How long is Doctor Doughnut going to be with us?
Ric Griffin: Sacha? You got a problem with his work?
Jac Naylor: Yes - he doesn't seem to want to *do* any!
|Season 12 / Episode 19: - Downstairs, Upstairs|
Ric Griffin: [Metting Nick near the lifts with Thandie] Mr Jordan.
Nick Jordan: Mr Griffin.
Ric Griffin: I have to be honest I'd thought you would have good grace to stay away.
Nick Jordan: [to Thandie] Not easy being this popular. [Back to Ric] Charlie Fairhead's been brought in. He's up on Darwin in theatre.
Ric Griffin: What's wrong with him?
Nick Jordan: Embolism.
Ric Griffin: Please be sure to pass on my best wishes.
Nick Jordan: Absolutely.
Ric Griffin: So why are you on Keller?
Nick Jordan: Sorry, have I stepped into the wrong neighbourhood
Ric Griffin: I thought that if your colleague was in theatre, you'd be there for him. Or do you still have that same winning way with people?
Nick Jordan: Just reminiscing Ric, thinking of the old days, the old team. You know, you, me and Jac, Connie, Diane.
Ric Griffin: Don't. Don't even mention her name.
Nick Jordan: Some wounds never heal.
Ric Griffin: If you have no more business here. [Nick takes the hint and walks off]
|Season 11 / Episode 7: - About Last Night|
Ric Griffin: This is a shortlist?
Dr. Keith Greene: Yeah.
Ric Griffin: How many?
Dr. Keith Greene: 14.
Ric Griffin: That is NOT a shortlist!
Dr. Keith Greene: Well, I don't make the rules, Ric. If you wanna have a fight about how shortlists AREN'T shortlists, but are in fact they're LONGlists, you speak to HR.
Michael Spence: Alright, what are we shortlisting now?
Dr. Keith Greene: The stars of theatre.
Michael Spence: Ah, anaesthetists?
Dr. Keith Greene: [to Ric] You see, he may come from the land of capped teeth, but he speaks my language.
|Season 10 / Episode 49: - Separate Lives|
Lola Griffin: So *you* were faking it...
Ric Griffin: ...And *you* were faking it. And fortunately Jayne Grayson was convinced enough to reach for her cheque book.
Lola Griffin: You could have told me.
Ric Griffin: No, it had to be the real deal.
Lola Griffin: "Plausible deniability", eh?
Ric Griffin: Something like that.
Lola Griffin: I really thought you'd sold out.
Ric Griffin: Lola, there must have been half-a-dozen times over the past twenty years when I would happily have seen you subjected to cruel and inhumane animal experimentation.
Lola Griffin: The feeling has been mutual.
Ric Griffin: But there comes a time when you realise that the things you have in common far outweigh the things that divide you. And that has to count for something. I couldn't let you get shafted by Jayne Grayson.
|Season 10 / Episode 46: - Hope, Faith & Charity|
Ric Griffin: You're not saying that Mr. Spence has found God?
Connie Beauchamp: No, Mr. Spence thinks he *is* God!
|Season 9 / Episode 33: - An Affair to Forget|
Ric Griffin: Thandie's made an appointment with the wedding planner.
Diane Lloyd: What?
Ric Griffin: Don't ask. I'm under strict orders to be there.
Diane Lloyd: [giggling] It would be awful if you stumbled over a bridesmaid or knocked a page-boy into the font!
|Season 9 / Episode 26: - Paranoid Android|
Connie Beauchamp: I don't know how you work in this shoebox.
Ric Griffin: It's not so bad.
Connie Beauchamp: Really? By whose standards?
Ric Griffin: Well, you see, *we* leave our egos at the door - that way, there's more room.
|Season 7 / Episode 48: - Great Expectations|
Zubin Khan: [reading from sheet] "Please speak the following healing affirmations into the patient's ear in a calm, relaxing voice." Hello, Monica. I am Two Trees Blowing In The Wind, your anaesthetist.
Ric Griffin: It doesn't say that.
Zubin Khan: Your operation has gone well. When you wake, you will be comfortable and you will urinate easily.
Ric Griffin: It does say that.
Zubin Khan: She's done her research. You will be hungry for - insert appropriate dietary requirements - and your body is now ready to complete the chain of healing. "Repeat the statement three times." Oh, I forgot a bit. And, Monica, when you wake up you will also believe that you're a giant talking rabbit.
Ric Griffin: Professor Khan!
Zubin Khan: [throwing away sheet of affirmations in disgust] Well, it either works or it doesn't.
Zubin Khan: For the first time ever, the NHS has more managers than beds. Did you know that?
Helen Grant: Your point?
Zubin Khan: I've got a rather revolutionary idea. You can take it to your next Trust meeting if you like. Get the managers down on all-fours, throw blankets over them - and hey presto!
Ric Griffin: [to Helen Grant] People management. Not really your forté, is it?
Lola Griffin: As my grandma used to say, "If you look for a peck of trouble, don't gripe when you find a bushel."
Ric Griffin: [sarcastically] As ever, your grandma's wisdom astounds me.
Lola Griffin: As Grandma used to say, "All mouth and no trousers makes Jack a dull boy".
Ric Griffin: Is it possible your grandma was a little confused?
