“Patch Adams” quotes(1998)
Plot – In 1969, Hunter Patch Adams is admitted to Fairfax Psychiatric Hospital because of his unstable and unpredictable nature. When he feels he can no longer stay there, he decides to be released under his own responsibility. Two years later he attends the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Soon he is noticed for his outgoing and direct ways. Expelled by the dean of the faculty and readmitted by the president of the university, he launches the idea of creating a completely free "hospital of joy". The hospital is born and it immediately receives many patients including Larry, who will kill Carin, a friend of Patch's. Overcome with grief, Patch is about to leave everything, when he recovers his lost confidence. He returns to university and again he gets expelled for his behavior. This time he must face the judgment of the medical committee: he makes a passionate defense of his understanding of the medical profession and the commission acquits him. At last he receives his degree.
