Nathan: What are you doing here?
Dr. Ledoux: I thought maybe I could help.
Nathan: We don't need your help. Caroline will do just fine. (leads Caroline into room where Jenny is in labor, closes the door; Jenny screams, and Caroline comes back out)
Caroline: Doctor, I just checked Jenny. She isn't doing well at all. You better come in.
Nathan: No! He's not to touch her.
Charles: Nathan, he's willing to help Jenny--
Nathan: No nigger's gonna touch my wife!
Charles: You listen to me. Your hatred's gonna cost that baby's life, maybe even Jenny's. My God, he's a doctor--
Nathan: I said no! (Charles punches him in the face, he falls to the ground) All right, Doc, go on in.
