Neil Melendez: I've also been thinking that... arrogance does make me a better surgeon. But it's not gonna make me a better husband.
Neil Melendez: The fact that you're alive right now is evidence that you were working with dimethyl sulfate.
Shaun Murphy: You're a terrorist, aren't you?
Pacient: My brother works for a drug company. They use dimethyl sulfate to make one of their medications. He stole some for me.
Shaun Murphy: So you could make a chemical weapon.
Pacient: So I could make perfume. Smell that.
Shaun Murphy: It's... beautiful. But very stupid.
Jessica Preston (to Neil): This is my life, and it'd be more devastating to be resented by you than to have my heart broken. And you are going to be a great dad.
Claire Browne: Does she know you're going there because she is going there?
Shaun Murphy: I'm not. Lea makes me happy.
Claire Browne: Well, Lea's not the only one that can do that. I'm gonna miss you.
Aaron Glassman (to Shaun): This is a now signed letter of recommendation. But... I don't want you to go. If you stay, I'll... I'll back off. I'll... I'll let you make your own choices, your own mistakes. I believe in you, Shaun.
Lea: Dr. Glassman is just trying to help you.
Shaun Murphy: I don't want help.
Lea: But what if... you need help?
Shaun Murphy: How will I know if I stay?
Claire Browne: Shaun asked Dr. Melendez for a letter of recommendation.
Aaron Glassman: Yeah. All I have to do is sign it and off he goes.
Claire Browne: I think... he might think that you're mad at him. If you don't sign, it reinforces what he thinks. But if you do, it lets him know that you believe in him.
Shaun Murphy: Why would I make people nervous?
Dr. Ko: 'Cause you have a gift. And surgeons judge themselves against their peers, and right now, you're winning.
Lea: No more conference calls. No more never-ending meetings. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is, uh... is moving.
Shaun Murphy: Why would you move?
Lea: Because that's where the shop that I'm gonna work at is. I got the Striped Tomato. My brother, Donny, got Grandpa Rod's shop in Hershey, Pennsylvania. It's been over a year, but every time I drive his car, I... keep thinking... "You know, I don't need a more impressive title or $1 million." He would take me fishing in Alaska every summer, skiing every winter break. I haven't taken more than one day off in four years because I always work. It never stops. And just taking this trip with you made me realize I, uh... I want to enjoy my life, you know?
Claire Browne (to Dr. Melendez): Finding someone you can't imagine a life without, it's hard. I know it's a cliché, but it is true.
