    • Jaime: Steve, d'you think I'll be able to play the violin when my hand gets better? Steve: Well, sure. Jaime: Oh, that's so great, because I have never been able to play it before.

    • (Steve tears apart a chair to demonstrate to Jaime). Steve: I know how tough it is. I went through exactly what you're going through. Jaime: Your arm is bionic? Steve: (nodding) And both legs. And an eye. Jaime: An eye? Which one? Steve: You tell me. Jaime: I can't. Steve: Now, will you trust me? I'll be here to help you, Jaime, every step of the way. But you've got to try. You've got to want to live, Jaime - you hear me?

    • Jaime: What did you let them do to me? Steve: Look, I know how you feel. Jaime: No, you don't! Why did you let 'em do that?! Steve: Jaime, trust me, please... trust me. Jaime: I don't wanna be a freak! Steve: Jaime... Jaime: Why didn't you just let me die, for god sakes! Steve: Jaime, don't tell me about wanting to die!

    • Steve: There still is, Oscar. You know how you're always looking for a new angle; a new device. I mean, think of what an asset Jaime could be to us. And her cover as a tennis pro - I mean, it's perfect! There are places she can get into that I could never get into! And she's got the head for it - she's well adjusted, she's... Oscar: Steve... Steve... you're in love with her! Steve: What's that got to do with it? Oscar: Everything! You'd sell your soul for her. You'd do anything; you'd commit yourself to her. But someday... someday, I'm gonna say, "I need her". I'm gonna need her for a job, and you know what you're gonna do, pal? You're gonna change your mind. Steve: No, I won't... I won't change my mind, Oscar, I swear it. Oscar: Well... what about... uh... Jaime? What does she say? Steve: She's dyin', Oscar. She put her life into my hands. I'm putting it into yours. You're the only one who can help. Will you help me? Please?

    • Oscar: Steve, it's just not possible! Steve: You know that's not true, Oscar, because I'm living proof that it is possible! Oscar: I'm not talking about technology! We can put Jaime back together again - I think it's possible. But there are other considerations! Steve: Oscar, I asked you up here to help me. Now so far, all I've gotten is a handful of red tape! Now there's a woman in there with no hearing in one ear, an arm and both legs crushed beyond repair, and you... you have the power to put her back together again, just like you did me! Oscar: Bionic limbs cost millions of dollars, d'you understand? Millions of dollars! I gotta get Rudy Wells and the whole bionic team up here. How am I going to justify the expense? Steve: Well, how did you justify me?! Oscar: That was different! There was a need!
