Glassman: You're still here.
Lea: What did they say?
Glassman: Very kind of you. No wonder you and Shaun get along.
Lea: What did they say? Did the new tests show anything new?
Glassman: They need time to process the C.T. images, send them off to Dr. Blaize.
Lea: So you might have been wrong about your cancer coming back?
Glassman: No.
Lea: No? How can you know you're not wrong if you don't know you're not wrong?
Glassman: This is how they do it: First they tell you it might be something, and then they order new tests to test the previous tests, only to inform you it was what they said all along. Very effective way of breaking bad news.

Lim: Put your mask back on.
Reznick: Why?
Lim: I'm infected.

Lim: This is a negative airflow room designed so no air flows out. Keeps germs from spreading.
Patient: Because whatever I have is going to kill me just like the man on the plane?
Shaun: Your symptoms are not as severe as his. Although yours will probably get worse as the virus progresses.

Lim: When did you start feeling sick?
Patient: On the plane. I've never even been outside the U.S. before. My ex-husband hated to travel...
Shaun: Was the man who died sitting near you?
Patient: No, he was 6 or 7 rows in front of me.
Lim: Were you ever physically close to him? Say, waiting for the restroom or in line to board?
Patient: No, I think he slept almost the entire flight.
Shaun: That suggests the virus can be transmitted through the air. Which means everyone in the plane and this emergency room has been exposed.

This Emergency Room is under quarantine. Nobody's leaving.


We might have just released a child molester.


I have autism, which makes empathy very difficult. Does that mean I can't be a good doctor?


Park: What do you say we fix your forehead?
Shaun: I don't think so. It's not medically necessary.
