We’re women, we’re not white, and we’re surgeons. Unicorns consider us a fabled species. We don’t get the luxury of public insecurity.[to Claire]
There’s more than one kind of home invasion. It’s not always fast and violent. Sometimes we open the door and we let the intruder in ourselves.
We don’t need to be insecure, because every step of the way, we’ve had to be twice as good as everybody else.[to Claire]
Security is an illusion. You want security? Call the Navy. Launch a regiment of troopers. We are healthcare providers. We treat sickness. We identify symptoms. We locate germs whether they arise from within or have come from the outside. The longer we wait to identify a disorder, the harder it is to treat the disease.
