Melanda: Congratulations, Maggie. You saved a life tonight all on your own, and that's amazing.
Maggie: But?
Melanda: Graveyards are full of our mistakes. All of us make them.

Joel: Alex, what is it? Did someone say something?
Alex: I forgot about him, Joel.
Joel: About Charlie?
Alex: For a mimute, when I was laughing just now. I felt free.

Scott: Hey Charlie, before I go, if you really want to get back to her you gotta try harder, or you're gonna lose her. So wake up.
Charlie: I don't know how to, Scott.

Nurse: Breaking heart, huh, Dr. Goran?
Joel: It wasn't personal. It's the way it's gotta be.

Joel: It kinda feels like you're using me here.
Maggie: Yeah. I am. For your body.

[to a patient] What I think about it? Is you're an idiot. You're alive, you have a life for as long as it lasts and a woman who loves you. And anyone who is breathing and conscious, who can see and touch the woman sitting next to him and turns his back on that, on her, is an idiot.


Eddie: What do you even know about fighting? You've totally given up.
Charlie: No I haven't.
Eddie: Really, um...that's not you giving up?

Listen to yourself. You're just pissed off because you want to show off and they're not playing along. But guess what, Joel? This isn't about you. He just wants her to live. He doesn't care what shape she's in and any risk is too much. He just wants her to live.


Alex: Looks like a nice quiet Saturday night.
Dr. Miller: Which you have just jinxed.
Alex: I'm a Capricorn. I don't believe in jinxes.

Maggie: You smell amazing. You're making my palms sweat.
Joel: You should probably get that checked out.

To be seen. It's all we want. From the moment we take our first steps. 'Look at me, Mom. Look at me, Dad.' Tell me I'm going to be okay. Tell me that someone cares about me. Tell me that we're in this together. And that you're going to get me through.


Alex: I'm a doctor. I'm objective and I form conclusions based on what is in front of me, what I can see and touch. Not on what I wish for and what I'm hoping is true.
Joel: You believe in him. You believe he's going to get better. You're not his doctor. You're his lifeline. And right now you're all he's got.

Saving Hope Quotes

Joel: It's gonna be weird, isn't it? I mean you and me. You didn't invite me to the wedding so presumably you're still in love with me.
Alex: Right. I totally forgot. I like to remember the poems you wrote me, the breakfast in bed, the nurses you were banging.
Joel: Okay, we can stop right there.

This is how it happens. You leave it all behind. Everything you love. Everything you know. You belong to the hospital now. And all you can do is hope.
