Hot Docs Week: Favorite McQuotes, Round 1

We love our Hot Docs because they can be sexy treating a patient or jumping into the next bed over with a co-worker... but let's all remember there's plenty about doctors' lives that's not exactly romantic. Here are some favorite quotes from our hot docs showing that sexiness and utter lack of sexiness always at odds in their mcfake hospitals.

We'll start out with House, Grey's Anatomy, and Private Practice today and continue tomorrow with more from ER, Scrubs, and some throwbacks to doctors of our TV pasts!


Cameron: "You hired me to get into my pants?!"

House: "I can't believe that that would shock you. It's also not what I said. No, I hired you because you look good; it's like having a nice piece of art in the lobby."

Cameron: "She's positive for gonorrhea."

House: "I think that's the first time those words have been uttered in joy."

Cameron: "Sex could kill you. Do you know what the human body goes through when you have sex? Pupils dilate, arteries constrict, core temperature rises, heart races, blood pressure skyrockets, respiration becomes rapid and shallow, the brain fires bursts of electrical impulses from nowhere to nowhere, and secretions spit out of every gland, and the muscles tense and spasm like you're lifting three times your body weight. It's violent, it's ugly and it's messy, and if God hadn't made it unbelievably fun, the human race would have died out eons ago."

Grey's Anatomy

Meredith: Did you let me scrub in for this operation because I slept with you?

Derek: Yes. Just kidding.

George: What happened today?

Izzy: Nothing

Meredith : Nothing

George: Ok

Izzy: We don't know everything about each other, George

Meredith: Yeah

George: True - anybody wanna have sex?

Izzie: [to Alex] You wanna see it? You really wanna see it? Fine! Let's look at that tattoo up close and personal, shall we?

[she rips off her shirt]

Izzie: What are these? Oh, my God! Breasts! How does anybody practice medicine hauling these things around? And what have we got back here? Lets see if I remember my anatomy.

[takes off her pants]

Izzie: Gluts, right? Lets study them, shall we? Gather around and check out the booty that put Izzie Stevens through Med. school! You wanna call me Dr. Model? That's fine. Just remember that while you're still sitting on 200 grand of student loans, I'm out of debt.

Private Practice

Naomi: Still don't think God's trying to tell us something?

Sam: You don't really think we're being punished for what we did last night?

Naomi: What, just because we may have some rare tropical, probably deadly, disease the morning after we have sex?

Sam: Well, if we are sick... I'm glad we got some.

Naomi: How sentimental.

Sam: That was a joke... I was joking.

Pete: "What's wrong with flirting?"

Addison: "What's wrong with it? What's wrong? What's wrong is that I don't have time for it. I am out of time. I missed my chance. And now I have two eggs left, I might as well have no eggs left. I am egg-less. Naomi says she's dried up? I'm the one who's dried up. I'm all barren and dried up. And I'm clearly wasting my time on men. I mean I might as well take up a hobby. Like needlepoint or collecting those ceramic dolls because that's what dried up women do - they do needlepoint. They don't waste there time flirting with men who clearly just want to get laid. They don't waste their time telling overly personal information about their eggs to total strangers. Oh my God. I'm sorry."

Cooper: Oh, you're... wow, you're naked.

Violet: Yeah, it makes the sex easier.

Cooper: It's just, ah, I've never seen you naked. In the office you always have your clothes on.

Violet: Well, yeah, I try to be a professional.
