Anna Murphy: Where did you two go?
[referring to Martin]
Anna Murphy: What a charming boy.
Steven Murphy: Isn’t he?
Anna Murphy: Yes, very. How did his father die?

Anna Murphy: How long have you known him?
Steven Murphy: Quite some time. His father was a patient of mine years ago.
Anna Murphy: Did you go to the funeral?
Steven Murphy: I did go, yes.
Anna Murphy: Why didn’t I go with you?
Steven Murphy: I think I told you about it, but you were busy or something.
Anna Murphy: You should tell him to come around again.
Steven Murphy: I will, he’d be great company for Bob. I thought next time I could take both of them out somewhere for a bike ride.
[referring to Steven’s phone]

[Steven answers his phone]
Steven Murphy: Hello?
[referring to the stick-on nodes]
Martin: If I had hair on my chest and belly, who would you attach these?
Steven Murphy: We’d shave the hair off first.
Martin: How long does it take for the hair to grow back?
Steven Murphy: I don’t know, about a month, I suppose.
Martin: Your son told me that you’ve got you lots of hair under your arms, three more times than I do, and that you’ve got a very hairy back and a very hairy belly.
Steven Murphy: I probably do have a little more hair than you because I’m older than you. But soon you’ll have more hair too. It’s all down to hormones.
Martin: Can you show me please? Can you take off your shirt and show me, please? Please.
[Steven hesitates for a moment before opening his shirt to show Martin his chest and under arm hair]
Martin: Okay, you do have more hair than I do, but not three times more. Me and my mom thought it’d be nice if you came by for dinner tonight. We could watch the rest of the movie. Does eight sound good for you?
Steven Murphy: That’s very kind of you, but I just can’t make it tonight. I need to be at home.
Martin: Can’t you get away for a couple of hours?
Steven Murphy: I can’t, no. some other time.
Martin: My mom’s going to be upset. Can I tell you a secret? Don’t tell her I told you. I think she, I think she likes you. I mean she’s attracted to you, but she says that’s not true, but it is, I’m sure. And to be honest I think you’re perfect for each other. You’d make a great couple.
Martin: [to Steven] My mom’s attracted to you. She’s got a great body.
Steven Murphy: [to Anna] A surgeon never kills a patient. An anesthesiologist can kill a patient, but a surgeon never can.
Martin: I want to say one more thing. I’m really sorry about Bob.
Steven Murphy: It’s nothing series.
Martin: No, it is. They will all get sick and die. Bob will die, Kim will die, your wife will die. Understand?
Steven Murphy: No, I don’t.
[to Anna; referring to Martin]
Steven Murphy: He’s got serious issues, serious psychological issues.
Kim Murphy: Don’t be scared, mom. You’ll see, you won’t be able to move either, but you’ll get used to it.
Steven Murphy: Where is she? What did you do to her?
Anna Murphy: I don’t understand why I should have to pay the price, why my children have to pay the price.
Martin: It’s the only thing I can think of that’s close to justice.
Kim Murphy: Dad, Bob’s dying!
Anna Murphy: You do realize, Steven, we’re in this situation because of you.
