Ben: Why should I trust you? You're not even a doctor. Boles: A doctor can't offer you what I'm offering. Ben: Because it's not legal, right? Boles: If your wife is cured, do you care if you broke a few rules?
You know, when I was seven years old, I went with my parents to visit an uncle who was living in a nursing room. I got lost for a minute, and I went into the wrong room by mistake. I thought it was my uncle, but it wasn't. He was terrible looking. His face had hardly looked human. And then he said "what are you staring at, boy?" I couldn't answer but I couldn't stop looking at him, either. And then he said "I'll tell you what you're staring at. A mirror. No matter what you do, you'll end up just like me. Just like me." For months after that I would check my face in the mirror every day. To see if it was happening yet.
