Dr. Cameron McCarthy: "I want you to custom make some parts for me. Not like anything we've done before. May not work, and I can't pay you."
Prosthetic Consultant: "Other than that I should be excited, right? Who's the patient?"
(Shows him a photo of a dolphin, he stops smiling)

In 'Dolphin Tale,' Morgan Freeman plays Dr. Cameron McCarthy, an expert in helping soldiers recover from devastating war wounds by using prosthetics. He's never worked with marine mammals before, so he's understandably a bit concerned when Sawyer asks for his help with a dolphin. see more on The Patient

Dr. Cameron McCarthy:"Trying to put a tail on a fish? Nobody in his right mind would even try it. Luckily, I'm not."
Sawyer: "Not what?"
Dr. Cameron McCarthy: "In my right mind."

Classic quote. Dr. McCarthy knows nothing about marine life (Winter isn't a fish, she's a mammal), but he's willing to try and help anyway.

Sawyer: "How's she going to live if she can't swim?"

Winter the dolphin has her tail amputated after being injured. Dolphins use their tails to move in the water - if Sawyer and his friends can't figure out a way to fix the problem, she won't survive.
