  • Quotes

    • Marvin What about Jenny? She keeping busy?
      Laura: There's not much she can do yet.
      Marvin: Who says?
      Laura: What?
      Marvin: Who says there's not much she can do--you or Jenny?
      Laura: Doctor--
      Marvin: Just a minute. Let an old man talk for a while. If there's one thing I've learned from all my years of doctoring, it's that when a patient is down, you gotta get them back up.
      Laura: I'm sure that in time--
      Marvin: No, now's the time, I'm telling you, Laura! The more they do, the better off they are. I've had patients that doctors gave up on because they didn't have time. You've gotta push folks. Love them, but push them. Give them encouragement, but push them.
