Derek: He has a long recovery ahead of him. He has severely damaged his facial nerves, shattered his inner ear, and lost a great deal of blood.
Patient's Wife: Oh my, God.
Mark: But, he'll be fine. He'll be in some pain for a while, but he'll be fine.
Patient's Wife: Oh my God, thank you. Thank you both so much.
Derek: Thank Dr. Sloan. That kind of bleed, not many surgeons could have handled. He saved your husband's life. Would you like to see your husband now?
Patient's Wife: Yes, thank you. (walks off)
Mark: You know, that's the first actual compliment you've ever given me?
Derek: It wasn't a compliment, it was a simple statement of fact.
Mark (smiling): See, why do you do that? Why can't you just give a person a compliment?
Derek: If you have to ask for a compliment, it's not a compliment. Are you asking for a compliment?
Derek (smiles): Then it's not a compliment!
