Kaitlin:
[testifying why she kept a copy of the admittance form] After the operation, when that poor girl she went into a coma, Dr. Towler called me in. He told me that he'd had five difficult deliveries in a row and he was tired... and he never looked at the admittance form. And he told me to change the form. He told me to change the '1' to a '9'... or else... or else he said, he said he'd fire me. He said I'd never work again. Who were these men? Who were these men? I wanted to be a nurse!

Judge Hoyle:
It seems to me, a fellow's trying to come back, he'd take the settlement, get a record for himself. I, myself. would take it and run like a thief.

Kevin Doneghy:
You guys... you guys are all the same! The doctors at the hospital, you... it's always what I'm going to do for you. And then you screw up, and it's, "Ah, we did the best that we could, I'm dreadfully sorry." And people like us live with your mistakes the rest of our lives.

[the church has offered a check for $210,000 to settle the case]



Frank Galvin:
How did you settle on the amount?



Bishop Brophy:
We thought it was just.



Frank Galvin:
You thought it was just?



Bishop Brophy:
Yes.



Frank Galvin:
Because it struck me, um, how neatly 'three' went into this figure: 210,000. That means I would keep seventy.



Bishop Brophy:
That was our insurance company's recommendation.



Frank Galvin:
Yes, that would be.



Bishop Brophy:
Nothing we can do can make that woman well.



Frank Galvin:
And no one will know the truth.



Bishop Brophy:
What is the truth?



Frank Galvin:
That that poor girl put her trust into the... into the hands of two men who took her life. She's in a coma. Her life is gone. She has no home, no family. She's tied to a machine. She has no friends. And the people who should care for her - her doctors... and you and me - have been bought off to look the other way. We've been paid to look the other way. I came here to take your money. I brought snapshots to show you so I could get your money. I can't do it; I can't take it. 'Cause if I take the money I'm lost. I'll just be a... rich ambulance chaser. I can't do it. I can't take it.
