Shaun: I am not afraid. I am not afraid. I am not afraid.
Steve: Of course you are. You know why? Cause this is stupid scary.

Director: So that doctor was right? If you operate I could be paralyzed? So what are we going to do about that?
Claire: We could remove the screw here.
Noreen: No. It's too risky. I won't let you do that to my wife.
Melendez: Dr. Brown is right. If we don't remove the screw right now, she could be paralyzed from the neck down.

Andrews: Resnick, no. You had surgery on your hands less than 48 hours ago.
Morgan: I don't need them to triage.

What if there's an aftershock? The whole place could come down.


I'm about to assemble a HURT team and head out. Any idea how many wounded?


Lea: Shaun? What are you doing?
Shaun: I want to smash your car.
Lea: That sounds like a really bad idea.

Therapist: Want to tell me what's on your mind?
Claire: Not really. I think I'm in love with my boss.

Glassman: I heard you're leaving surgery. It's not easy, but I think it's the right call.
Morgan: I don't. I love operating. I'm going to have the surgery on my hands.
Glassman: Well, that's stupid.

Melendez: It is one thing to take your bad mood out on your colleagues, but to undermine me in front of the patient... thank goodness he disagreed.
Shaun: My opinion is valid.
Melendez: All opinions are valid until we go into the operating room. We have to be a team. One opinion.
Shaun: I don't feel better. I feel worse. And doing the wrong surgery will not help me feel better. I didn't want to be here. I'm going home.

Melendez: So think outside the box.
Shaun: There is no box. That is a stupid expression and you are wasting time just because you want to be nice to her [Claire].
Melendez: I'm not being nice.
Shaun: You ARE being nice.
Melendez: No, I'm using my years of experience to make a recommendation. And you're being a jerk.

Finn: Is there any way you can keep her and Natalie in separate waiting rooms so they don't cross paths during my surgery?
Claire: We're not helping you cheat.
Finn: I'm not cheating. I've been honest about how I'm not ready to settle down, but sometimes women make assumptions.
Claire: Assumptions. That's what you're calling it.
Finn: Look, all I'm asking is to get through brain surgery without emotional turmoil that I'm sure would make it more stressful.

I'm a farmer. I don't want to be a cyborg.


The Good Doctor Quotes

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


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.

Dr. Aaron Glassman
