"Before we were doctors we were med students which meant we spent a lot of time studying chemistry. Organic chemistry, biochemistry; we learned it all. But when you're talking about human chemistry only one thing matters. Either you got it or you don't."
"Chemistry, either you've got it. Or you don't."
