Movie Quote of the Day (George C. Scott, on American Health Care)

Dr. Herbert Bock (played by George C. Scott): “It is all rubbish isn't it? I mean... transplants, antibodies, we can produce birth ectogenetically, we can clone people like carrots, and half the kids in this ghetto haven't been inoculated for polio. We have established an enormous medical entity and we're sicker than ever. We cure nothing! We heal nothing! The whole goddamn wretched world, strangulating in front of our eyes.”—The Hospital (1971), written by Paddy Chayefsky, directed by Arthur Hiller
