Shane (looking at his stomach and scar, that goes right through the middle of his tattoo): Dr. Bai-- She did this on purpose, right?
George: I don't understand. You have a black partner, right? Mary?
Shane: Yeah. Do you know how she is?
George: Are you two friends?
Shane: Look, I'm not the devil, okay? I'm just a guy with a belief system. Mary's a nice girl. We save lives together. That's a good time. Look, if she wanted to marry my brother, I'd have a problem with that. But so would a lot of people. I'm not that much different than most of the people that you know.
George: Well, Dr.Bailey did save your life today. A black woman saved your life at great personal cost. So maybe next time you're looking at your tattoo, and you're thinking how much better all us white guys are than everyone else, you think about that. Because between you and me, if I had been alone in that O.R. You'd probably be dead right now. And, uh, since we're sharing belief systems, I believe, if you were dead, the world would be a better place.
