Dr. Thomas Vrain: Carol? Carol? You're doing fine, you know that? You're doing just fine.
Dr. Aldo Gehring: Let me... let me say something. Surgeons, are something people don't understand uh... surgeons are like airplane pilots. Surgeons are not creative.
Jay Wingate: Well, there's an old saying that I think perhaps you're familiar with, that internists are people who know everything and do nothing and surgeons do everything but know nothing.
Dr. Aldo Gehring: Surgeries are only repetition, it's just plumming, one two three, one three two. There's no intellecutal aspects.
Jay Wingate: What do you mean, no intellectual aspects?
Dr. Aldo Gehring: To a surgeon a body is not sacred, it's a world, but a world without God. He obliterates the sun, a star, and then changes clothes and goes home. I'm talking about something else. The replacement of the falible body infalible, the perfection of this miracle we call life.
Jay Wingate: Obliterates the star? That's a wonderful phrase.
Dr. Aldo Gehring: The end is now the beginning. The end is not the end.
