  • This is the first episode since the series premiere to not have a "previously on Third Watch" segment, probably due to the nature of the episode
  • Starting with this episode until Episode 9 (Sex, Lies and Videotape), the opening credits are not shown. The main actors are credited on-screen directly after last week's recap.


  • The Mamas & The Papas "Monday, Monday"


Bosco: Can't believe it. First Giants game of the season, Monday Night Football and I'm stuck working.
Faith: Yeah, well, right now, you're not working. You're staring at a bunch of revolving desserts. Would you decide, please?
Bosco (to the restaurant worker): Is that fresh?
Restaurant Guy: No, it's three weeks old. The way our customers like it.
Bosco: What about the rice pudding?
Faith: Bosco...
Bosco: The German chocolate cake looks good. Do you recommend the German chocolate cake?
Restaurant Guy: Delicious.
Bosco: Hmm.
Faith: We'll take a piece of the bundt cake, two forks.
Bosco: Are you sure?
Faith: Yeah, I'm sure.

Bosco (to Faith about Sully's wedding): You weren't upset that you weren't invited?
Faith: I don't think it's a formal invitation kinda thing.
Bosco: Yeah, well, Davis is going.
Faith: They're partners.
Bosco: So, we've worked with him longer than Davis has.
Faith: You don't even like him.
Bosco: Sure I do.
Faith: You like Sully?
Bosco: I don't hate him or anything.
Faith: Oh, well, that would put you at the top of my guest list.

Davis: Sully, we're in Atlantic City, you're getting married in less than 24 hours and you're sitting in a bar by yourself, watching TV. It's not right. I won't allow it to happen, let's roll.
Sully: Davis, listen I... I apperciate you comin' all the way down here to witness the ceromony, I really do. But I'm 44 years old. You know, I don't wanna go out and get drunk and waste a bunch of cash on strippers.
Davis: Yeah, but I do.
Sully: So, who's stopping you?
Davis: It's tradition, alright? I'll bet you Tatiana's girlfriends got her drunk, tryin' to pull off a g-string off some male stripper with her teeth.
Sully: They got tickets to the Pointer Sisters.
Davis: Ah, that's what they told you, my friend.
Sully: You're not gonna let go of this, are you?
Davis: You don't want to be the only man in America to get married without a hangover, do you?
Sully: All right.
Davis: Yes!
Sully: But we are going to be back by 1:00 a.m. and nobody touches me.
Davis: No touching, right.

Carlos (to Doc): Finders keepers.
Doc: "Finders keepers"?
Carlos: It's a well established legal principle. You find it, you keep it.
Doc: Oh, yeah, yeah. I think that was one of the cornerstones of the Magna Carta.
Carlos: The what?

Sully (to Tatiana): It's supposed to be bad luck to see the bride before the wedding.
Tatiana: Yeah? Why?
Sully: I have no idea.

Fred (about the doctor): How can he be late? We gotta be his first appointment.
Faith: I don't know. Maybe he went to vote.
Fred: No, he just wants us to know that his time is more valuable than our time.
Faith: His time is probably more valuable than our time.
Fred: The egos on these guys.
Faith: Well, he did graduate from medicial school and we didn't.
Fred: So? That doesn't make him any better than me. (Faith shrugs) What was that? That shrug thing. You think this guy's better than me?
Faith: I didn't say that.
Fred: But that's what you were thinking.
Faith: What are you, like a mind reader now?

Kim (to Catherine): I was sleeping, Mom.
Catherine: I called you all night.
Kim: Oh, that was you? Thank you for helping me no get any sleep. What's the matter Mom, disappointed in my housekeeping skills?
Catherine: I was calling you all night because Joey wanted to talk to his mother. He's sick, he wanted to talk to you.
Kim: He's sick? What's the matter?
Catherine: Stomach flu. Jimmy had to work and I think that he just wanted to talk to you.
Kim: Well, where is he now?
Catherine: School. He's feeling better today.
Kim: Well, maybe he should've stayed home another day if he was that sick.
Catherine: He was okay this morning or I wouldn't have let him go. You know, you can't just let the phone ring like that. It scares the hell outta me. I would've come over here last night if I hadn't had Joey.
