Hello, I'm Dr. Shaun Murphy. I'm a surgical resident at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital.


Dr. Blaize: I think you had me reinstated as your last official act before they booted you as president because I am the best oncologist around and you would like to get the best treatment.
Glassman: Yeah. So, I'd like to ensure that the brain -- in this instance, my brain -- stays as dry as possible during surgery, maintain minimal swelling. I would still like to be able to swing my 9-iron when we're done here.
Dr. Blaize: Of course, it's also possible that you had me reinstated because you'd like an oncologist who thinks they owe you and you want to push them around.
Glassman: Look, Dr. Blaize, I am like any other patient, entitled to have a say in my own treatment, but unlike any other patient, I have spent my entire adult life digging into people's brains. So, if you think I'm going to sit around and watch, you're mistaken.
Dr. Blaize: Well, if you think you can operate on yourself I'd happily add you to the list of potential surgeons.

You exceeded my expectations, but your communication results are sorely lacking.


I am damn smart, and I am a damn good surgeon, and if I can't be those things then I don't know who I'd be.


Jessica: Aaron, you can’t stop fighting. Maddie would never have wanted you to stop.
Aaron: No! Don’t you dare! Don’t you dare! What are you going to say, huh? That Maddie was a fighter? That she never quit?

Shaun: I love you.
Aaron: I know. I love you too.
Shaun: I love you more.

Hope is irrelevant for me. Hope is painful. I don’t want to spend what’s left of my life chasing my tail around in a circle.


I need a friend more than I need space.


Shaun: You got a 70-inch flatscreen too.
Kenny: Uh, no. I borrowed yours. It makes no sense for us both to have one, right? Plus, the homies got to watch March Madness.

We’ll just take the doorstop.

What are you doing tomorrow? I’m calling in sick.


What would happen if people who needed our help thought they would be arrested?


The Good Doctor Quotes

As a wise person once said, holding a grudge is a stone in your heart.

Dr. Jared Kalu

Aren’t we judged by how we treat people? I don’t mean as doctors. I mean as people. Especially those who don’t have the same advantages that we have. We hire Shaun and we give hope to those people with limitations that those limitations are not what they think they are. That they do have a shot! We hire Shaun and we make this hospital better for it. We hire Shaun and we are better people for it.
