    • Charles: (voice-over) As surgeons, we deal in absolutes, in certainty. We make a choice. We believe it's right. We can't second-guess ourselves. At least, that's what I used to think.

    • Alex: This is life and death. You have to be aggressive.
      Joel: Okay, when did this become about you telling me how to do my job?
      Alex: When you came in here and started soft-pedaling me like I don't know the facts.
      Joel: You know what? I came in here because I was trying to be nice to you.
      Alex: Well, don't be nice. 'Cause you're a lot of things, Joel, but you're not nice.

    • Charles: (voice-over) What if we did get to know our patients? What makes them happy or sad? Would it help us? Would it help them?

    • Charles: (voice-over) In case you're wondering, during a craniotomy, they drill holes in your head. And that's about it. See, most patients don't understand how physical surgery is. The body is tough. You gotta crack a few bones, poke a few holes, and really get in there. And it works, most of the time.

    • Charles: (voice-over) See, doctors like tests. It's the unknown that scares them. Yeah, this is exactly what I would do... see what's going on in my brain. I can tell you what's going on in my mind. And I wish I could hold you, Alex, and tell you that I'm gonna be okay... But I can't. And you know what? There's no test for this. I am having an out-of-body experience in a tuxedo. (to himself) Wake up, you dumb bastard.

    • Joel: I mean, you didn't invite me to the wedding, so presumably, you're still in love with me.
      Alex: (laughs) Right. I totally forgot. I like to remember the poems you wrote me...
      Joel: Mm-hmm.
      Alex: The breakfasts in bed, the nurses you were banging.
      Joel: Yeah. Okay, we can stop right there.

    • Charles: (voice-over) Basic human contact. It's bigger than any other idea. It takes you outside yourself. It's more comforting than words. Without it... we'd die. Sometimes it's not enough. And sometimes it's enough... for now. Contact grounds you. It brings you back.

    • Joel: Why do you keep staring at me like that?
      Maggie: 'Cause I can't decide whether you're insane or a genius.
