The Resident Season 3 Episode 5: "Choice Words" Quotes
Yi: Tell us everything. What was he like? No sense of humor like you?
AJ: Well, he's stubborn. He's melodramatic, and he's opinionated, so no, he's nothing like me.
Every doctor has a patient in their past they want to go back to and treat in a different way. Focus on the ones who need you right now.Conrad
Look, you are the only parents that I know. Everything that I am, everything that I have accomplished, I owe to both of you.AJ
Adaku; Mina Okafor, I want you to be my baby's godmother.
Adaku: I'm cancer-free now, but we both know that that can change. If anything happens to me, I want my baby to have a strong brilliant Nigerian woman to show her the way.
Devon: She needs you to operate.
Cain: I'm booked five weeks out.
Conrad: She's got gold-plated insurance.
Cain: Oh, okay. I get it, so you guys think I'm some Red Rock tool who only thinks about the money? I could have gone to any hospital in the country, gentlemen. I chose Chastain because I saw the opportunity to help as many people as possible. With a staff that would support me or at least stay out of my way. Coming at me like this is not how it's done. Your patient needs my help, I will operate on her because I care, not because she can pay.
Devon: Maybe we misjudged him.
Cain [to nurse]: Check her insurance.
AJ's mom: I came here to tell you that I don't think you're being honest with yourself or with us.
AJ: Come on, ma.
AJ's Mom: Come on, AJ. You are my son, and I know you, and I also know that one day you will want to meet your biological mother.
AJ: That woman is a stranger who threw me away. I do not want to meet her.
AJ's Mom: Because you're scared that she won't be enough for you, or you won't be enough for her? And you're also scared that she might hurt you again.
AJ's Mom: Listen, you won't know what you'll find when you walk through that door. But you know exactly what you'll find when you walk back through ours. No matter what, we will always be here for you. So when you're ready, you go see her my son. But I got a few ground rules. Birthdays and holidays are mine. You got it? And every other day in between.
AJ: You got it.
Mina: They are great people.
AJ: They are amazing people. Even when they don't know what they're saying yes to, they still put me first. Even if it hurts. That's family. The ones who sacrifice for you out of love. Who make the difficult decisions even if they have every reason to ignore them. I hope I can be the type of parent they are.
Conrad: What about you?
Devon: Long day.
Conrad: Evey doctor has them. We go home. We learn from our mistakes.
Devon: The thing is I didn't make one. I was right not to report that pilot.
Conrad: Wrong. Drunk pilots should not be flying period. Sixty-two injuries. Fourteen critical.
Devon: Do I feel bad about what happened? I do, but patients need to know that when they come to us that we will keep their medical history private good or bad. Once we lose that trust we can't help anyone and people will die.
Conrad: People did die. Because of your choice, how do you not see it?
Devon: I took an oath. I get that you would have made a different choice.
Conrad: The right one
Devon: For you, but I don't want to be the kind of doctor you are.
Conrad: Well, clearly I've been wasting your time.
Cain: So I guess you're the Bell whisperer.
Kit: Hardly. I don't think anyone's quite figured out that man yet.
Cain: You talked an educated doctor out of proven medical intervention.
Kit: Well, if Bell's mastered one thing is self-preservation.
Cain: Yes, and he also plays well with others which is more than I can say for you. Don't ever speak to me like that in the OR again.
Kit: I can say the same thing.
Cain: I can say whatever I want. That's the difference between a surgeon who bills 80 million dollars a year like me and one that bills two.
I'll write your boss the best doctor's note you've ever seen.Conrad
