Amanda: You don't think much of me, do you?
Marissa: What do you mean?
Amanda: A woman who sleeps with three men in that short period of time -- I mean, "slut" is the word that comes to mind.
Marissa: Do you think he knew that Trevor wasn't his?
Amanda: I don't know. If he did -- you know, it's insane to think that he would fight for a child that way that wasn't his own.
Marissa: Maybe it isn't so crazy. Isn't that what Jake has been doing -- fighting for a child that wasn't his own?
Amanda: You're right. My God, David loves Trevor. No matter the results, it may never be over. David may never give up.
David: I have worked so hard to get where I am. All my life I've been driven to succeed, and I did. My walls are covered with plaques, awards, certificates. I have saved countless lives. I have basked in all the praise and adulation. I really am the best at what I do. But what do I have ultimately in the end? Nothing. In the end, I leave nothing. Here lies a once great doctor, one of many. Please. There's no pride in what I do anymore, Greenlee. I just go through the motions out of selfishness and ego. Because the truth is all my life all I've ever wanted was one thing -- a family. My own family -- a wife, children. [Sighs] The promise that comes with growing old and watching your kids grow and flourish. The only thing greater than pride in oneself is the pride you have in your children, to stand there at the back of the room and watch your son's first piano recital or your daughter kicking in the winning goal, their first of many diplomas. Children -- what so many people take for granted, and what I just can't seem to stop losing.
Greenlee: What price to you pay if you lie to your child? How many lives would be ruined? How many hearts broken?
David: That's what it is, isn't it? Hmm. Yep. That's what it always comes back down to. Say it, Greenlee. You feel the same way as everyone else -- that I'm evil, that I'm some kind of monster. Go ahead, say it. You'd happen to be right. That is the sickening truth.
