Whether heart-warming, dramatic, or even heart-wrenching, there have been many memorable moments on The Good Doctor.

In no particular order, these are our five best moments from the various seasons.

Please note that a spoiler warning is officially in effect! ⚠️

A rare moment

As a result of his autism, Shaun (Freddie Highmore) resists most physical contact. One of our most memorable moments was watching him share a rare hug with his pseudo-dad, Dr Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff). Seeing them have this bonding moment was truly heart-warming.

Shaun saves the day

With only a pocket knife, an empty bottle, and a straw, Shaun put together a contraption that kept a critically injured victim stable until he made it to the hospital. This moment alone proved without a doubt that Shaun is an extraordinary doctor.

To err is human

Distracted by Glassman’s brain cancer diagnosis, Shaun made a near-fatal error that almost cost a patient his life. Even though the team was eager to cover for him, he decided to take responsibility by reporting himself to his superiors.

I want to love you

After ending things with Carly, evidently nervous, Shaun mustered the courage to tell Lea (Paige Spara) that he was in love with her. Even though Lea left the room and Shaun was in tears, one couldn’t help but be proud of him for being so brave.

Shaun and Lea’s first kiss

Shaun and Lea’s first kiss will forever live in our heads rent-free, and we are not complaining. 

It all started with Lea teaching the doctor how to end a date. The two locked lips and fireworks went off.
