  • Quotes

    • Sean: You´re the one who inspired me to be a surgeon. I wanted to be you.
      Dr. Grayson: You´re gonna be me, Sean. You´re in my path. You´re a success now. Forty is when it starts. The dutiful wife gets tired of your hours and your lack of emotional intelligence. She´ll stay around for another five years if you´re lucky. Mine left when I was 50, but she´ll leave. When Father´s Day comes around, and Christmas, and Thanksgiving, and you sit alone with your diplomas, and the thoughts of all these people whose lives you´ve saved except your own.

    • Sean: Erotic films are when you use a feather. Porn films are when you use the whole chicken. This girl's been through a lot of chickens.

    • Julia: What you do with your life and where you stick your dick, is your business. What you do with Matt is mine. From now on you stay away from him!
      Christian: Julia, you're being way too dramatic here. You can't lay down a law like that. Matt's like a……son to me.
      Julia: And he is a son to me! And a real father would never do what you did. You'll never be capable of being a real father, Christian. You wanna know why? Because real fathers wouldn't turn someone they love into filth-loving, moralless, bottom feeders. Real fathers want their sons to be better than they are, not carbon copies!

    • Sophia: Can we talk about cost? When I spoke to your partner over the phone, he said that this office, especially you, Dr. McNamara, does free work. On a case by case basis.
      Sean: I'm afraid 'pro-bono' is out of the question for this type of operation. That's usually reserved for people who have suffered accidents or birth defects.
      Sophia: Being one gender on the inside and another on the outside is a birth defect.

    • Christian: The line that divides the porn industry and the plastic surgery is a thin one. We're both selling fantasy, aren't we?
