Morgan Reznick: So, what'd you get... Hugo Boss? Armani?
Shaun Murphy: Dr. Andrews said I should just rent one.
Morgan Reznick: And you're gonna listen to him?
Shaun Murphy: He's the Chief of Surgery. And he knows about clothes.
Morgan Reznick: If Andrews had a son, you think he'd let him go to an important event in a cheap rental tux?
Shaun Murphy: He said people who matter judge people based on their talent.
Morgan Reznick: Yeah, that's what he tells someone else's kid. To his own, or someone he actually respects, he tells the truth.
Shaun Murphy: You wear very stylish clothes.
Marcus Andrews: Um, thank you. I assume you mean when I'm not in surgery.
Shaun Murphy: Yes. Do you think people believe you're a better doctor because of that?
Marcus Andrews: Some people. Others probably just think I'm a show-off or arrogant, gay. I don't care. I do it for myself. You look good, you feel good.
Shaun Murphy: Does it help you make friends?
Marcus Andrews: Feeling good about yourself helps with everything.
Morgan Reznick: You gonna buy a tux or rent one? The fundraiser is black tie.
Shaun Murphy: I have a suit. It's new. I bought it for my resident interviews.
Morgan Reznick: It doesn't matter how new it is. It's not a tux.
Shaun Murphy: Wearing a uniform at work reassures patients. Wearing a uniform at a party does nothing but make you hot and uncomfortable.
Morgan Reznick: This party is work. Get a tux. And not a crappy one from some outlet store. Get fitted by a pro and spend a minimum of two grand. You're gonna meet rich people who can help your career, and they're not gonna want to help some slob in a...
Shaun Murphy: I'm not a slob. No, I am very clean and make sure my clothes are never wrinkled.
Claire Browne: You think I need to be more cutthroat?
Neil Melendez: No. That's Morgan's M.O. You're different. You're smart, you're special. Rise up, play the game on your own terms. Don't wait for it.
Quinn's Mother: Whatever we decide, Quinn is still gonna be a girl.
Quinn's Grandmother: I don't know if I'll ever be able to accept that. I know that makes me sound horrible.
Aaron Glassman: I know what it's like to not put your family first, and it cost me. It cost me a great deal. And if I had to do it all over again, I'd ask myself... is it really worth sacrificing a life with someone I love over an idea that may never be?
Shaun Murphy: What does it feel like to be a girl? Are you angry? Was that an inflammatory question?
Quinn Darby: I'd rather people ask questions instead of pointing and staring. When I used to look like a boy, I felt... different. The kids at school didn't understand me, so they picked on me. I spent a lot of time alone. When my parents let me be me, I felt... like I didn't have to pretend anymore. I felt free, like when you're in a pool and you just let go and float.
Shaun Murphy: I'm not a very good swimmer. I don't know what it feels like to be anyone but me.
Quinn Darby: Me, too.
Jared Kalu: You're actually enjoying this scut work, aren't you?
Shaun Murphy: Yes. We are being helpful.
Jared Kalu: We're not doing this to be helpful, Murphy. We're doing this because you pissed off Lim, and I'm collateral damage.
Shaun Murphy: We're still being helpful.
Jared Kalu: Doesn't matter. Doesn't matter, competition's over.
Shaun Murphy: Is it?
Jared Kalu: We're in here and not with the patient. No face time plus you calling her a "he" equals crappy survey scores.
Shaun Murphy: It's okay. It's a game. It's not important.
Jared Kalu: It is to me. I'm a pariah. These scores are part of our resident evaluation. Our jobs depend on them. Mine does, at least.
Shaun Murphy: Then we should do this scut work very well.
Shaun Murphy: Why did you give Gus a doughnut?
Morgan Reznick: I was being nice. I needed my patient's labs expedited. Gus likes doughnuts.
Jared Kalu: It's called bribery.
Morgan Reznick: I call it "basic human decency."
Morgan Reznick: Toy bears, Skype with kids... you've got game.
Claire Browne: "Game"? I believe the name for what I did is "basic human decency."
Morgan Reznick: Everyone has an agenda. Sometimes it's conscious, sometimes it's not, but it's always there. And you've got this whole "queen of kindness" thing down pat.
Claire Browne: Awfully cynical for someone so young.
Morgan Reznick: Mm, not cynical. Just the reality of how the world works.
Claire Browne: It's good to have you on board, Morgan. It's great to have another female surgeon.
Morgan Reznick: Oh, uh, I'm sorry, you and I are not gonna be friends, hanging out, having sleepovers, braiding each other's hair.
Claire Browne: That's not exactly where I was going with it.
Morgan Reznick: When residency's over, the hospital's likely only keeping two of us. Shaun is Glassman's pet project, so he's in. Jared is persona non grata, so he's out. Which means every time you win, I lose. And vice versa.
Claire Browne: Thanks for the heads up.
Morgan Reznick (to Jared): Are you the autistic one?
Jared Kalu: No.
Shaun Murphy: That's me. Dr. Shaun Murphy.
Shaun Murphy: I don't need a father. I hate fathers. I need a friend.
Aaron Glassman: Shaun, I-I am someone who can't help but give advice, you know? I don't know if I can not do that.
Shaun Murphy: So you think I can change and you can't?
Aaron Glassman: I think that we have a certain kind of relationship. And we can call it something different if we want, but we can't magically make it different. You said that you wanted space. You said that you needed space.
Shaun Murphy: I-I think you should be my friend.
Aaron Glassman: Shaun...
Shaun Murphy: Okay.
