Thomas Grasso: Someone's about to get some A-1 kidney meat! I'm like a, I'm like a racehorse; I could drink a sixpack without even peeing. Marina Grasso: Honey, gross! Dr. Lucien Dubenko: Actually, micturation capacity is related to bladder size and neural sensitivity, not renal function. Thomas Grasso: Then we'll give 'em some bladder too! Dr. Abby Lockhart: Does it hurt here? Simon: No, but if you tug on Willy, I'll sing Dionne Warwick's greatest hits. Dr. Abby Lockhart: Tempting, but no thanks. Simon: Doc, doc, you gotta get me out of here, man. I got a hot date tonight. Dr. Archie Morris: Does, uh, she take air or helium? [chuckles] Simon: She takes Visa. That was funny. Jessie's mom: If he's got lice, you're cutting his hair. Dr. Ray Barnett: I'm a doctor, not Vidal Sassoon. Dr. Abby Lockhart: Your blood tests show that you have leukemia. Simon: Thank God! I thought you were gonna tell me I had cancer! Dr. Abby Lockhart: Leukemia is a cancer of the white blood cells in the bone marrow. Simon: That's great! That's great. So give me some Viagra, send me home, and we're all good! Dr. Abby Lockhart: This isn't funny. Simon: [suddenly serious] I know. Simon: Why can't cancer be like herpes? I got that once and it never came back. Simon: I got a nervous bladder and a neurotic sphincter. Seriously, it sucks. I can't be in public, and I'm afraid to fart in case I start a fire. Simon: Pee is funny. Bedpans, funny. Catheter, not so funny. Nurse Samantha Taggart: Okay, little prick. Simon: It's just because it's cold in here. Dr. Abby Lockhart: The EpiPen is spring-loaded, so all you have to do is press it against your thigh, and it fires off a shot. Simon: Ah. Sounds like my high school years. Dr. Archie Morris: Epi has a one minute half-life. Simon: I have a body part with that same problem.
