"Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Emergency rooms are kept in business by people who've learned that the hard way; sky divers, bull riders, people who's bold ideas can often result in broken bones and shmushed spleens. Surgeons are trained to deal with the fallout of bold ideas. We pick up the pieces and do our best to piece them back together."
"The thing about the bold moves, they're terrifying, could end in nothing but tears and broken bones and that's exactly what makes them so damned exciting."
