The Good Doctor – Official Trailer – Coming to ABC September 25


♪♪ 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. [ Beeping, wheels clicking ] 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. [ Monitors beeping,
heart beating ] 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. ♪♪
