Quotes 

  • Steven Murphy : A surgeon never kills a patient. An anaesthesiologist can kill a patient, but a surgeon never can.

  • Steven Murphy : This meat is delicious.

    [pause] 

    Steven Murphy : You were right, after all. The children are much better here. I was even thinking I might take them to the beach house, for a few days. A little fresh air and a change of scenery might do us all good.

    [pause] 

    Steven Murphy : Do you know what I've been craving? Mashed potato. Why don't you make some tomorrow?

    Anna Murphy : You have beautiful hands. I never noticed before. Everyone's been telling me lately what beautiful hands you have and now I can see for myself, nice and clean. But so what if they're beautiful? They're lifeless. Sometimes Steven, you're just an incompetent man who goes on and on saying stupid things like, "Let's do a scan. Let's do an ultrasound. Let's wear brown socks. Let's make mashed potatoes. Let's go to the beach house."

    Steven Murphy : Excuse me?

    Anna Murphy : Our two children are dying in the other room, but yes, I can make you mashed potatoes tomorrow.

    Steven Murphy : Please don't talk to me that way.

    Anna Murphy : If you don't like it, why don't you go and live with Martin's mother? I'll bet she'll talk to you better.

    Steven Murphy : You wanted the kids to come home and they came home. What else you want me to do?

    Anna Murphy : Something to put an end to all of this. That's what I want. Can you do that? You do realize Steven, we're in this situation because of you.

    Steven Murphy : So what do you suggest? Tell me. Oh wait, I know. I've got it. There's a way we can put a stop to all of this. All we need to do is find the tooth of a baby crocodile, the blood of a pigeon and the pubes of a virgin. And then we just have to burn them all before sunset. Let me see, do we have any spare teeth lying around? Teeth, pubes? Nope, none here! LET ME SEE, DO WE HAVE ANY HERE? PUBES, TEETH? Nothing in this box either. Where are they? I'm sure they were here earlier. I put them here myself. WHO'S BEEN MOVING THINGS AROUND? FUCKING UNBELIEVABLE! I don't suppose you have any pubes I could have, by any chance? Oh, I forgot. You don't have any left. We don't have any of the things we need.

  • Martin : I wanted to say one more thing, I'm really sorry about Bob.

    Steven Murphy : It's nothing serious.

    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.

  • Surgeon : [to his son]  If you don't stop playing games, I will shave your head and make you eat your hair. I mean it. I will make you eat your hair.

  • Steven Murphy : I'll bury you in the yard, and you'll rot.

    [pause] 

    Martin : If you dig a hole in the yard, better make it a big one.

  • Student's Dad : The boy is very good at math and physics. Kim is very good at literature and history. They're both a little restless, but they've never been rude to any of the staff.

    [pause] 

    Steven Murphy : If you had to choose between them, which would you said is the best?

  • Steven Murphy : [about Martin]  He's got issues. Serious psychological issues.

  • Steven Murphy : Do you think your mother is proud of you? Do you think she is happy that her beloved son is a murderer?

  • Anna Murphy : What a charming boy.

    Steven Murphy : Isn't he?

    Anna Murphy : Yes, very. How did his father die?

    Steven Murphy : Car crash. Driving home. Smashed it into a pole. Killed instantly.

    Anna Murphy : How long have you known him?

    Steven Murphy : Quite some time. He 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.

    [pause] 

    Anna Murphy : You should tell him to come 'round again.

  • [last lines] 

    Steven Murphy : Bob's eyes are bleeding. Come to the living room.

    Anna Murphy : Now?

    Steven Murphy : Yes. Now.

    Anna Murphy : Steven, where are the children?

    Steven Murphy : They're already there.

    Anna Murphy : I think I'm gonna wear that black dress that you like.

    Steven Murphy : Wear whatever you want. Just hurry.

  • Anna Murphy : You have beautiful hands. I never noticed before. Everyone's been telling me lately what beautiful hands you have and now I can see for myself. Nice and clean. But so what if they're beautiful? They're lifeless. Sometimes, Steven, you're just an incompetent man who goes on and on, saying stupid things like, "Let's do a scan."Let's do an ultrasound, let's wear brown socks."Let's make mashed potatoes, let's go to the beach house."

    Steven Murphy : Excuse me?

    Anna Murphy : Our two children are dying in the other room, but, yes, I can make you mashed potatoes tomorrow.

  • Steven Murphy : Our daughter started menstruating last week.

    Matthew Williams : Great.

    Steven Murphy : Yes. She was a little scared but she's okay now. You haven't seen her in ages.

    Matthew Williams : Not since last summer at the school choir. Recital.

    Anna Murphy : You and Mary should come over one night for dinner.

  • Martin : [at his physical exam]  Can I tell you a secret? But 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. She's got a great body. You've seen it for yourself. She lost weight and she has a really great figure.

    Steven Murphy : Your mother is very beautiful, but the idea that she and I could ever be together is ludicrous. Let me remind you, I'm a married man. And I love my wife very much and my kids, and that we are very happy together.
