Transplant Season 1 Episode 7: "Far From Home" Quotes
Bash: When was the last time you took a day off?
Mags: Um, last week or the week before? I don't know.
Bash: If you did have one, and you were forced not to work on it, what would you do?
Mags: Oh my god. I'd, um, see the friends that I've been ignoring since my residency started? Um, I'd read a book that isn't a medical text. i'd drive to the bluffs, blare out loud music.
Theo: I have two bedrooms.
Bash: Excuse me?
Theo: I know. Mags told me, and you hate that, but just get over it. All right, Amira can have one room, you can be on the couch until you sort things out and uh at least that way you'll both be under the same roof.
Bash: Honestly, Theo, I couldn't possibly-
Theo: Bash, I don't wanna fight you on this, but I will if I have to so just let me help.
Mrs. Ruiz: Why is it so hard for her to let me in?
June: I know, I mean. Maybe, maybe because you're so focused on keeping Selena from dying, when all she really wants to do is live, you know?
Theo: You're willing to risk your own health, instead of having someone else treat you?
Mr. Watson: I have a right to decide who my doctor is.
Theo: No, George. You have a right to treatment. And we're offering you that. Now, if you decide not to accept it. We'll discharge you, you can go home and let your lungs fail. Otherwise, someone will be down shortly to take you to thoracics. So go, don't go. It's your call.
Mags: 113 B. it's an overflow on-call room. Everybody forgets it exists.
Bash: Um, sorry?
Mags: Uh, if you need somewhere quiet to sleep for a few hours when you spend the night.
Mel: My dad's waiting to retire until you take over. We have a plan! A life we dreamed about!
Theo: We made that plan when we were 20.
Mel: Has something changed?
Theo: Just, I don't know, I stayed close to home for med school, my residency, just lately felt like, maybe there's room for us to expand a little.
Mel: Are you unhappy? With us?
Theo: No, Mel. Not at all.
Me: Because home is home. That'll never change. Not for me. Not for the girls. I don't want it to.
June: Okay, I get it. Your mother is ... She's super intense. But my concern is you and your fever.
Selena: You don't get it. I've never dated. I didn't have a friend that wasn't my sister until I was 17 years old. When I moved out, everything changed. I went on a hike last weekend. Can you imagine what she would say if she found out that I did that?
Dr. Bishop: Well this patient doesn't have any insurance. We'll cover the emergent costs if we need to, but do you do you know if he even can pay for surgery? Or, ideed, if he wants it?
Mags: Dr. Bishop, I really think in this case, I -
Dr. Bishop: I think you're trying to solve a problem that he might not want solved Dr. Leblanc. Run the antibiotics. If tht clears the abscess ... Well, go.
Mrs. Ruiz: I know I can be overbearing.
June: We have protocols to follow, even for rare disorders.
Mrs. Ruiz: See, that's the thing. Most CIPA kids are lucky to make it to 25. Where you see a rare disorder, I see Selena at five, burning the flesh off her hand on the stove, or walking on a broken ankle for a week without even knowing until it wouldn't hold her anymore. I just want her safe and sound.
June: I want the same thing, Mrs. Ruiz. I do. But Selena's 20. Okay? So her medical decisions are in her hands.
Mr. Watson: I'm in construction, I work on my feet. I haven't smoked a day in my life. What is this?
Theo: There's a few possibilities. But the procedure is fast and non-invasive. When I release the air from around the lung, hopefully, it will re-expand, and you should feel much, much better.
Mr. Watson: You said hopefully. What if it doesn't?
Theo: Well, if the needle aspiration and pigtail doesn't work, then you'll need a chest tube.
Mr. Watson: You do that?
Theo: No, that's a consult for thoracics.
Mr. Watson: You look like you know what you're doing. You never know what I'll get if you send me somewhere else.
Theo: You mean who you'll get.
Mr. Watson: If you're gonna stick a needle in my chest, I'm gonna need her to distract me.
Nurse: Aren't you a little bit too old to be afraid of needles?
Claire: I have something to tell you.
Dr. Bishop: Mm-hmm.
Claire: I left Eric.
Dr. Bishop: You left your husband?
Claire: A few months ago.
Dr. Bishop: A few months ago? And you didn't say anything?
Claire: Well, it wasn't about you. And I need some time to figure out my life on my own.
