(clears throat) mr. penn, you're gonna die. what? why? i don't understand. i'm a good christian. okay, so make eye contact, speak slowly, use active listening. don't be afraid to use physical contact. (man speaking indistinctly over p.a.) (clears throat) (clears throat) well, your... tumor has enveloped your brain stem. i've never seen anyone survive this, ever. i should also mention-- perhaps tangentially-- that the efficacy of prayer in these circumstances has been shown to be of limited benefit. how's that? all right, jack. we do not have a neck immobilizer, but we do have this... fine pillow from your wonderful store--$9.95. and i'm gonna duct tape your head to keep it stable.

(both exhale sharply) (grunts)
this is gonna be a bumpy ride. okay. just hold tight, buddy. okay. (wheels clacking) (grunting) (monitor beeping steadily) i think i got 'em all. and that, ladies and gentlemen, is why i gave up composting. and the presence of maggots in the wound means what, dr. lin? that the patient delayed seeking treatment. that the patient's leg is severely infected. (object clacks) that the patient has a very high pain threshold. basically, your friend is a superhero. i mean, this guy is insane, right? there's a bunch of metal artifact fromld wounds in here. shrapnel, probably.

(monitor beeping steadily) (telephone ringing in distance) how are you feeling? terrible. i hear you saying, "you feel terrible." i feel like somebody just... banged my head against the ground. mm-hmm. i hear you saying, "you feel like somebody has banged your head against the--" (sighs) stop. dr. hamza. i-- i complained about your bedside manner because you seemed completely unaware that i was a human being... with feelings. but this is... this is worse. i just--i just don't know how to be. just be yourself.
the surgery didn't go as well as i'd hoped. we weren't able to remove all of the tumor. and i just find people so confusing sometimes. i get it.
