Trevor: OK, you've seen this problem before?
Conrad: All the time during the pandemic. A lot of patients who died claimed that COVID was made up.
Conrad: Those posts aren't truthful, Wyatt. They're propaganda by unqualified people who have politicized medicine. They want to sell distrust in science, they use snake oil.
Trevor: The real truth, Wyatt? Bad metal is not a thing. Dr. Hawkins is who you want giving you advice, he's an actual expert.
Wyatt: I form my own opinions, OK? You have yours.
Trevor: This isn't an opinion. It's fact versus fiction, you understand?

Trevor: What are we here for, huh? Watch people we know we can save just die.
Conrad: I was here to save him. Now we're just here to make sure he doesn't die alone.
Conrad: He's your first death.
Trevor: Yeah, not how I imagined it going down.
Conrad: You pictured a different kind of heroism. Blood spattered all over your white coat.
Trevor: Do you ever get used to it?

I am judging people for not loving medicine enough while trying to cut down on clinical time to go do research.
