"You are special" , "Lets face it, Doctors are special" Opening words from the chief resident doctor to the new group of interns on their first day. The movie is a classic.

And the Fatman - "See these hands? These hands never touch patients. Why? Because not only are most patients better off left untouched, they are better off left unseen."

He is the good guy. Working in a system in which the primary goal of any doctor is to practice medicine, not heal patients. "Order a test, produce a complication. Order another test, produce another complication. And on and on it goes. Until the patient is 'Putzilized' (a term named after Dr Putzil, a 'slurper' extraordinaire.

Well worth a watch. And btw, its available for streaming from Netflix. I just watched it a few weeks ago.
