  • I met Shaun Murphy when he was 14 years old.

  • Shaun!

  • Just act like a normal human being.

  • He was and he still is an extraordinary young man.

  • Autism -- difficulty in communicating.

  • He's high-functioning.

  • He's capable of living on his own.

  • Difficulty in using language and abstract concepts.

  • Kid, watch out!

  • Does it sound like I'm describing a surgeon?

  • [ Breathes deeply ]

  • He's breathing. He saved his life!

  • Who are you?

  • I'm Dr. Shaun Murphy.

  • I'm a surgical resident

  • at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital.

  • And you thought that this board wouldn't have any doubts

  • about hiring a surgeon diagnosed with autism?

  • Justify your decision.

  • He also has Savant syndrome --

  • genius-level skills in several areas.

  • He sees things...

  • It's his heart! Adam needs an echocardiogram.

  • No. Behave yourself, or you'll be removed from the building.

  • The echo is normal. Show them.

  • ...and analyzes things in ways

  • that we can't even begin to understand.

  • Again.

  • Again.

  • There!

  • Looks normal to me.

  • It's not normal.

  • This kid was sprayed with glass shards.

  • What if a piece of glass entered his bloodstream?

  • Blood could be lurking behind the heart.

  • You were right.

  • Why were you rude to me when we first met

  • and now you want to be my friend?

  • Which time was it that you were pretending?

  • He's got a serious deficit.

  • A child is alive today because of that deficit.

  • And tomorrow, one may be dead because of it.

  • We hire Shaun, and we give hope to those people with limitations

  • that those limitations are not what they think they are,

  • that they do have a shot!

  • Never forget -- you're the smart one.

  • You can do anything.
