"Because it's just us now, there were five of us and now you and I are the only ones left. And it can't be just me. It can't be. I will go down swinging for you, Alex, you know I will, but that means you can't give up. You don't throw the fight. So, whatever you're doing this for...please...don't."
"Surgeons fight. We fight against death. It's our thing. But eventually, if history is any indicator, death is gonna win. We may win the battle, but we're never gonna win the war. So, the trick is to go down fighting. To fight for the right cause. For the right person... And if you go down, you all go down together."
