Max: I didn't think you were coming back here.
Helen: Neither did I.
Max: So much death here. It got to you, didn't it?
Helen: No, I became immune to it, which is even worse.
Max: Why did you come back?
Helen: Because of you. People were excited, Max. For the first time in a long time, people are excited again. I want to be excited too.

New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 1 Quotes

My sister Luna and I were born here in New Amsterdam, and eight years later, Luna died here. Hospital-acquired infection. Entirely preventable.


Max: Unlike the previous medical director, I actually expect you to practice medicine at this hospital because I don't know, that's your job.
Helen: You're funny.
Max: You said that.
Helen: I'll tell you what, I'll continue giving speeches all over the world because you can't afford the type of publicity I give this hospital. And I'll continue my on-air appearances with Ellen, Oprah, and anyone else powerful enough to go by one name because someone has to remind New York that even though New Amsterdam is an underfunded public hospital, we can still go toe-to-toe with the privates from basic care to state of the art procedures. I will be back next week with lunch at the Tavern. My treat.
