If you want to add a custom field value based on the Quick Call
selected, that would be doable, but you'd have to do some work to
create the proper parameters.  

If you want to display a custom field on the quick call screen, then I
suspect you want to search the mailing list archives for users who
have modified Quick Create.  Quick Calls was meant to be a quick
'select from a list, make a ticket' extension.  Quick Create is more
suited to collecting information from users at creation time.

Adding a non-global Custom Field to Quick Create or Quick Calls could
obviously have some interesting bugs
