The Resident Season 1 Episode 1: "Pilot" Quotes
Bell: I'm Chief of Surgery, and it's the end of a 30-hour shift. What did you see?
Doctor: We're all on the same side here. Maybe he had a heart attack.
Conrad: Everything you thought you knew about medicine is wrong. All the rules you followed will break. I have only one rule, it covers everything. I'm never wrong. You do whatever the hell I tell you, no questions asked.
Devon: Do you want me to speak now?
Conrad: That's a question.
Nic: You think you can just kiss me and...
Conrad: I will do whatever it takes to get you back.
Conrad: You need to consider a change before you kill any more patients.
Bell: How dare you!
Conrad: Go be one of those celebrity TV doctors. You look the part. Make a lot of money. Wear nice clothes. You'd be great at it.
Bell: Watch yourself, Conrad.

CONRAD: You came in here all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to save lives, but today, you didn't save a life. You saved a brain stem. Because you didn't listen to me. Now, the repercussions on Chloe's family will be catastrophic. There's no way they'll accept this. Chloe looks alive. They'll think she can wake up, so they will hover over her. Tend to her for days, weeks, maybe years...waiting for a miracle to happen that's utterly impossible. What was rule one, Devon?
DEVON: Do whatever you tell me to do, no questions asked.
CONRAD: All we want to do is help our patients, but what they don't teach in medical school is that there are so many ways to do harm.
Mina: I heard a nurse call him HODAD. What does it stand for?
Conrad: Hands of Death and Destruction.
Medicine isn't practiced by Saints, Devon. It's a business.Nic
Nic: Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the United States after Cancer and Heart Disease. They don't want us talking about that.
Devon: But you still show up every day.
Nic: Because it's personal to me, and there are still plenty of good doctors and nurses trying to do the right thing. I'm just trying to be one of them.
It's not easy. If it were, everyone would be a doctor because it's the best job in the world, despite everything, because of everything. I'll see you tomorrow.Conrad
