On The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 5, Shaun gets his chance to be a lead surgeon. At first, the patient seems to be a happy-go-lucky woman who is glad to have Shaun as her surgeon, but when Shaun discovers that her tumor is so extensive that she will require a permanent feeding tube, there are problems.

Shaun doesn't want to tell the woman himself because he is not good at patient management. Lim agrees to let Park do it, but Andrews overrides her and demands Shaun do it once they get in the room. The woman then wants a different surgeon, causing Shaun to freak out and run away.

Lim convinces Shaun to go with her while she demands the woman allow Shaun to do the surgery, but now Andrews thinks Shaun isn't ready. His fears seem to be borne out when Shaun has a meltdown during the surgery and leaves the room.

With Park and Lim's help, Shaun calms down and tells them what he saw in the OR and his new plan for treating the woman's tumor. He leads Andrews through a successful surgery that will not require a permanent feeding tube.

Lim thinks this is a success. Andrews thinks it's a failure because Shaun walked out in the middle of surgery.

Meanwhile, Glassman is upset when he discovers Debbie owns a gun.

The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 5 Quotes

You look awfully young. I always say that the younger you are, the smarter you must be.


Claire: Thank you for your help with the sea lions. But I'd like to keep my mother's death between us. I'm not ready to deal with people's platitudes.
Morgan: That suggests you're not okay with it. That's a textbook case of denial.
Claire: Denial is the first step of the grieving process but thank you for the platitudes.
