Park: Your heart's beating too fast and you're in v-fib.
Edna: My heart's been keeping me going for 90 years, so don't be too hard on it.

Powell: It's too early for her to make that decision.
Shaun: No. The longer she waits, the greater the risk of irreversible adema.
Powell: Many factors to consider. That's why I advised her not to have the surgery.
Shaun: Excuse me? You are a first year resident. I have much more surgical experience than you.
Powell: And I have more physical disability experience than you.
