Roberto Rosales: Is it always like this?

Dr. Ray Barnett: Where is she?
Neela Rasgotra: [amused] Exam two. And here's the kicker, Jerry Lee, your prepubescent penis pal has Chlamydia.
Dr. Ray Barnett: I had no idea she was that young!
Neela Rasgotra: Young? She's still teething. Although, I don't know, maybe you enjoy that.

[in voiceover]
Dr. Neela Rasgotra: The toughest thing about being a doctor isn't the terrible hours. It isn't the loneliness, the isolation, or the knowledge that one day, we lose out to the relentless decay of the human body. No, it's something else.
Dr. Neela Rasgotra: [later] The toughest thing is making the right call when it counts.

[in voiceover]
Dr. Neela Rasgotra: The care of every patient is a twisty maze that leads to an infinite number of potential outcomes. We hope that knowledge and experience guide us, but sometimes it becomes obvious a wrong turn was made.
Dr. Neela Rasgotra: [later] If only it were possible to apply the wisdom of our mistakes, go back to the fork in the road, and this time, be assertive. Choose the road we think we should take, not the path of least resistance.

[in voiceover]
Dr. Neela Rasgotra: For some patients, there is no road to recovery. Nothing we do as doctors will alter the outcome. At least that's what we tell ourselves.

Dr. Lucien Dubenko: No. It means that no matter how much we care, sometimes the people we try to save die.
Dr. Neela Rasgotra: Are you actually trying to rationalize this? 'Cause we both know you should never have left that room this morning!
Dr. Lucien Dubenko: That's enough. Please. There are more patients than there are doctors in this place and I can't be everywhere. None of this should be news to you, this is the job.
