Shaun: Why are you so upset about Mrs. Stanley refusing treatment? She has terminal cancer. She is dying anyway.
Asher: I know my family loved me, but they didn't see me. Except my grandmother.

Asher: I don't understand. Why are you doing this?
Maxine: Because it's my life, all of it. Including the ending.

Shaun: We need to make a plan in case your water breaks at the mall.
Lea: I'm guessing that's a specific concern that someone -
Shaun: Dr. Parks said when his wife went into labor -
Lea: Stop talking to people.

Being in the hospital, trying to protect your child, is a terrible, lonely feeling. As a doctor, there's nothing I can say to make it better. As your friend, I can tell you that you're not alone.


Lea is in good hands, even if they're not your hands.


Glassman: Shaun, you gotta relax.
Shaun: No one expecting a baby should relax. There are too many things that could go wrong.
Glassman: Okay, so then after the baby is born you can relax?
Shaun: No, because then it's going to need feeding and being taken care of.
Glassman: Okay, so after it can feed and dress itself...? Are you getting my point here?
Shaun: That I am never going to relax again?

I'm alive? Which one of you bozos did this?


I think we should stop seeing each other. You're good for me, but just sleeping with you isn't.


Tarrin: You shouldn't feel guilty for being happy.
Lea: I wasn't happy at that moment. I was... scared.
Tarrin: For us?
Lea: And for me. You two are so different... and so angry. But you are also so strong.
Tarrin: You don't think you're strong enough?
Lea: Not for this.
Tarrin: This doesn't usually happen. This isn't supposed to happen. And the way we've dealt with it has nothing to do with what kind of parents we are. Compassion does. And the way you treated us... you're gonna be a great mother.

An eight-year-old boy could be dying and you're going to monitor him? If this was your child, would that be acceptable?


Glassman: This one's different, huh.
Shaun: Because he's a child?
Glassman: Yeah, because he's a child.
Shaun: No, I've lost children before.
Glassman: Every parent has just one job: to keep his child alive, to keep him from all the horrors in the world. And maybe because you can't protect Ethan...
Shaun: That is not rational.
Glassman: Maybe not, but it's worth it.
Shaun: It doesn't seem like it's worth it.
Glassman: You don't mean that.
Shaun: I came here to get surgical advice about Ethan and all you've given me is emotional advice about me.

When someone disagrees with you, you have to shut them up? You couldn't let us wave our little signs in peace? You had to outshout us and when that didn't work you had to shoot us?


The Good Doctor Quotes

Why were you rude to me when we first met then nicer to me the second time we met and now you want to be my friend? Which time was it that you were pretending?

Dr. Shaun Murphy

Aren’t we judged by how we treat people? I don’t mean as doctors. I mean as people. Especially those who don’t have the same advantages that we have. We hire Shaun and we give hope to those people with limitations that those limitations are not what they think they are. That they do have a shot! We hire Shaun and we make this hospital better for it. We hire Shaun and we are better people for it.

Dr. Aaron Glassman
