Transplant Season 1 Episode 11: "Orphans" Quotes
Dr. Bishop: What does your patient say?
Bash: Not much. She's afriad, disengaged from her treatment,
Dr. Bishop: People don't always want the things they need, huh? Talk to her. Get her consent.
Theo: Wait, you, you bribed him?
June: I tried. It didn't work.
Theo: So, you're saying he was thirteen?
June: Chelation therapy's not gonna be easy for a kid his age, but given how extensive his lead poisoning is, he may need it.
Theo: Okay, so then why are you calling me?
June: Because he won't talk to me.
Theo: You, you called me to ask how to talk to your patient?
June: Well, I mean, normally I deal with adults, okay?
Dr. Mitchell: That's heartbreaking.
Bash: She shut down. She wouldn't discuss any other treatment options with me after that.
Dr. Mitchell: Why do you thnik that was?
Bash: With her prison term coming to an end, I think that she thought if her mother would forgive her, that she would deserve to get out.
Dr. Mitchell: Same reason she was starting fights. Because your patient didn't think she deserved her release.
Bash: And knowing that her mother wouldn't come, even when she was so sick, made her give up on life.
Bash: Nicole asked me to contact her mother. Our social worker is trying to reach her.
Marty: Thirteen years she's been in max. Mother never showed, not once.
Bash: You said earlier that she was getting out. Her release is soon?
Marty: Statutory after two thirds of her haul. Never slipped up once, until now. Nic was a kid when she came in. My own daughter was just born at the time. Anyway, she worked hard to change. But bringing this trouble on herself? You see that when they don't wanna go. When they're scared to.
Bash: We'll keep an eye on it to make sure nothing's wrong, and hopefully you'll be in good shape before you go home. (Pause). Go back.
Nicole Spencer: I've been in lock-up my entire adult life. It is home.
Bash: How're you feeling?
Ms. Spencer: Like I lost the fight.
Bash: I'd have to see your opponent to know for sure.
MS. Spencer: I guess if I don't make it, we'll know she won.
Bash: Well, let's not call it just yet.
Dr. Bishop: Dr. Curtis, take point.
Bash: Sir, I've done a REBOA before.
Dr. Bishop: Then you're not missing out, are you?
As physicians, we're trained never to show weakness. This, despite the long hours, patients' lives in our hands, their deaths on our minds. We're taught to suck it up and roll on to the next. But that's unrealistic. The weight of the job gets to us all. Not just doctors who come from war zones.Dr. Mitchell
