  • Quotes

    • Julia: For God´s sake, Sean. Do you think I took the midterm hoping I´d miscarry?
      Sean: You knew the risks.
      Julia: You´re not the only one who´s lost a baby, Sean.
      Sean: But I was the only one who wanted one.

    • Liz: Does any one here besides me think there's anything morally reprehensible about a white man trying to pass himself off as a victim of the American racial hierarchy?
      Christian: Sean, tell her to stop using all those big words around me.

    • Christian: Can I buy you another drink?
      Grace: Now that, Dr. Troy, would be pointless. Seeing as you're the reason I'm drinking.

    • Christian: Dr. Santiago, have you ever been sued for malpractice?
      Grace: As a matter of fact, I haven't.
      Christian: Of course not. That would be silly. That's like suing a witch doctor for a spell that didn't work.

    • Christian: Don't take this the wrong way but you haven't exactly been superdad.
      Sean: I'll do better this time. People change.
      Christian: Faces change, Sean. And asses and thighs, but people? Do you think that guy's gonna be any more Japanese because we make him look Asian. We are who we are.

    • Victor: I feel sorry for you, man. Obviously, you've never been in love.
      Christian: Sure I have. Its that beautiful moment between meeting the women of your dreams and seeing her stretch marks.
