    • Richard: I'm- I'm sorry, y-you wanna take Dr. Torres home?
      Mr. Torres: Now, I reconize that my daughter's a senior resident and you've invested in her education. I'm happy to write out a check in whatever amount, as a donation to your hospital. In exchange, I would ask you to transfer her to St. Mary's in Miami.
      Richard: I apperciate the offer, sir, but with all due respect, your daughter is a grown woman. Does she know you're here?
      Mr. Torres: You don't have children, do you?
      Richard: No, no, no, I dont.
      Mr. Torres: No, you don't, because if you did 'your daughter's a grown woman'... I mean, that-- that means nothing, she's my child. It's like blood running through your veins, you don't outgrow it... it never goes away, the love. The need to protect them, from everything... From everything, even from themselves. They grow up, they move out, they change, become people you don't even reconize, make decisions... I mean, and they think you don't love them, because you don't understand, but it's the opposite. See, it's the opposite. You fight for them, always. You never surrender. When your child is on the line, you never surrender.
