"Most surgerons grew up being freaks. While other kids played outside we hauled up in our rooms memorizing the periodic table, huddling for hours over out junior microscopes, dissecting our first frogs. Imagine how suprised and relived we were when we grew up and found out there were others out there just as freaky as we were. Same microscopes, same dead frogs, same inexplicable urge to take human beings apart."
"Nobody chooses to be a freak. Most people don't even realize they are a freak until it's way too late to change it. But no matter how much of a freak you end up being, chances are there's still someone out there for you. Unless, of course, they've already moved on because when it comes to love even freaks can't wait forever."
