Movie Quote(s):
  • [Benson is describing what he smells before he has a seizure] Benson: It smells like pig shit in turpentine.
  • [last lines] 1st man behind door: They want *you* next. 2nd man behind door: Quit kiddin' around!
  • 2nd man behind door: They take Benson yet? 1st man behind door: This morning. 2nd man behind door: They really gonna put wires in his brain? 1st man behind door: Sure. 2nd man behind door: No shit!
  • [small peephole opens in door to what appears to be a solitary confinement room from the inside POV; first man's eye is seen peering in] 1st man behind door: He's quiet now. [moves aside, a second man's eye appears] 2nd man behind door: What's his name? 1st man behind door: Benson. 2nd man behind door: Looks okay to me. What's wrong with him? 1st man behind door: Ahh, he's bananas. 2nd man behind door: When's he going out? 1st man behind door: In the morning [closes peephole]
  • Benson: [mumbles] Dr. John Ellis: [operating on Benson] Who was that? Dr. Robert Morris: Patient. Dr. John Ellis: You all right, Mr. Benson? Benson: [groggily] Fine... fine... Dr. John Ellis: Any pain? Benson: No... Dr. John Ellis: Good. Just relax now. Benson: You too doctor...
Movie Trivia:
  • Michael Crichton was originally going to write and direct the film.
  • The film never had a UK cinema release.
  • Crichton was fired from writing the screenplay due to the fact that his script did not follow the novel (which he had written) closely enough.
  • The name of the hospital, though never spoken in the movie, is "Babel". It is barely visible as a low contrast (beige on white) emblem on the uniforms. The logo is a circle, containing the name printed horizontally and vertically sharing the central "B", similar to the Bayer Cross.
  • The Hospital uniforms indicate the wearer's profession as a single letter on the collar: "D" for doctor, "N" for nurse, "T" for technician, etc. They are highly depersonalized in style, with only "dissenting" staff (Dr. Manon and Dr. Ross) showing any hint of individuality in work apparel.
