Charles: How long will the treatments take before you can get him back on his feet?
Doctor: Mr. Ingalls, I'm sorry, but......well, there is no treatment. Albert's not going to get any better. Only worse.
Mr. Edwards: Wait a minute, Doc. Are you trying to tell us that Albert can't be helped?
Doctor: Yes, that's right.
Charles: I--I don't understand. I mean, he's been fine up until yesterday. He's been a little tired, but--
Doctor: Mr. Ingalls, Albert has had this problem for a very long time, and now we're just beginning to see the symptoms because it's getting progressively worse.
