The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 2: "Debts" Quotes
Glassman: Debbie wanted me to talk to you to tell you not to give up on love. So don't give up on love.
Shaun: You want me to tell her you told me?
Glassman: Yes, please. [Follows Shaun] Hey Shaun, I know this dating thing can be scary.
Shaun: You're good at dating.
Glassman: Well, before Debbie the last time I went on a date, Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go was the big hit. After Maddie and the divorce, I kind of shut down for a while and it felt better to be in a place where I couldn't get hurt. But then I got my diagnosis and I thought I was going to die and Debbie came into my life and I said to myself, I don't want to be safe anymore, you know? I want to feel alive. And if I get hurt, I get hurt. That's part of the deal.
Shaun: Morgan says it's biological and it doesn't make sense.
Glassman: She's right.
Shaun: So I'm right?
Glassman: No. Look, it's wonderful, this love thing. Why should it make any sense? When I think about the reasons I'm in love with Debbie, okay, she's kind, she's funny, she's loving. But that's not it, not really. Don't tell her this, but there are other people in the world that are kinder, that are funnier, that are more loving than she is. But she makes me happy. Just being around her makes absolutely no sense, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Figuring out what we want and why we want it and if it's good for us are good questions, Shaun. And they can't be answered over one dinner.Carly
Park: I've had plenty of first dates that are actual disasters. I took a girl to a Coyotes game. That lasted 17 minutes and then I spent the rest of the night in the ER after she got hit with a puck. I married her eight months later.
Shaun: And then you divorced.
Park: It was worth it.
Morgan: We don't have a choice. Evolution demands that we propagate. So we play a game that we're going to lose most of the time because the upside is so wonderful. But if Shaun doesn't have to play that game, good for him.
Andrews: We have officially turned into an episode of The Bachelor. Everyone go home.
Morgan: I'm not tired.
Park: Me either.
Andrews: I am.
Shaun: There are still so many possibilities.
Andrews: Give it up, Murphy. You are smart and you are creative, but there are some things you can't do. You can't do miracles. You can't fix everyone.
Glassman: Nobody likes dating, Shaun. It's awkward and expensive.
Debra: Oh, is that why you proposed after our second date? To save money?
Glassman: I proposed after our second date because I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you.
Debra: Yeah. Sometimes you just know you're having too much fun.
Shaun: That did not happen to me. [looks at phone] I have surgery. I have to go.
Glassman: Shaun, when you're ready you'll try again.
Debra: When you're ready you'll try again?
Glassman: I didn't want to push him.
Debra: I disagree. I think he needs to be pushed.
Glassman: A man doesn't push a man into another date.
Carly: Shaun, you seem uncomfortable. So if it has to do with our date, I want you to know I had a good time and I hope we can do it again.
Shaun: I had a horrible time and I never want to do it again.
Lim: The Cantrells want a different surgeon. Tell me about the first surgery. Is it possible you were too aggressive?
Melendez: Is this an M&M?
Lim: Not yet. I just need to know what happened. Do you think you might have cut too deep?
Melendez: I can tell you I did not cut too deep.
Lim: Okay. I'll let the Cantrells know.
Melendez: Audrey? Is this weird for you?
Lim: A little. You?
Melendez: I'm trying not to let it be.
Claire: So if you saw a woman getting groped on the subway you'd just stand idly by?
Andrews: Do you stop to help every homeless drug addict you see on the subway?
Shaun: I don't.
Andrews: And neither does Brown here, which is why she needs to stop being so self-righteous.
Father: Our baby is in pain. He can't eat. And you don't seem to have a clue what's wrong with him!
Melendez: I'd be upset too if I was in your position. But you're wrong. Your son's in good hands.
Father: I'm sorry. I'm just...
Melendez: A father who loves his son. You have nothing to apologize for.
Morgan: What's in the box?
Park: A Koti throw pillow.
Morgan: You really think you can bribe her with a pillow?
Park: I'm not bribing her. I'm being nice. She's starting a new job in a new office...
Morgan: Where she'll decide who gets the first lead surgery.
Park: I'm not stupid enough to think I can influence her decision with a gift, but it never hurts to have a good relationship with your boss, and it's a damn cool pillow.
People who have things under control don't show up at their daughter's apartments at 1 o'clock in the morning.Claire
Lea: Friends are great, but we all need that special someone.
Shaun: I AM NOT LIKE EVERYONE!
[Lea slams a magazine down onto the table]
Shaun: I don't like when you do that.
Lea: I know. But I did it anyway cause you need to snap out of it. The moping. It accomplishes nothing.
Shaun: I am not moping. I am eating.
Lea: Which is the only thing you are doing outside of your room now. You didn't even come out to tell me to turn down The Pumpkinheads.
Shaun: It didn't bother me.
Lea: The walls were shaking. I'm surprised the cops didn't show up. You like Carly. You need to get back in the saddle.
