it still had to be proved.

I can't allow you to experiment with...

Why, after all...

...the man's a human being!

- You mean he was a human being...

...and he may be again,

if you'd keep ethics out of this!

Sometimes we have to gamble.

Or haven't you the courage to face

the most daring...

Jekyll, I wouldn't talk these experiments

around very openly if I were you.

You're dealing with things

it would be better not to mention.

- There might be trouble.

- Trouble?


Harry, old boy, there are rumors of...

What's the matter?

- Don't worry, John, I'm leaving.

- Now, it can't be as bad as that.

John, my good friend, I realize

your Dr. Heath is right.

After all, we doctors can't

experiment on human beings.

Something might go wrong, and they'd

no longer believe in our medicine.

- Now, look here...

- But when I get proof, ethics or no...

I wanna be on hand, regardless.

Good afternoon, sir.

Just in time for tea, sir.

I'll be bound you had no lunch, sir.

Now, what about some nice

hot crumpets, sir, huh?

Of course, we mustn't spoil

our appetite for dinner tonight.

Miss Beatrix would be after me

properly if we did that, sir.

And besides, Mrs. Marley's butler

tells me...

...that their new cook

is really first-class, sir.

Sir, what about your tea, sir?

Shall I serve it down there, sir?

Now, look here, sir, you must have

something, you know.

Mrs. Marley, my deepest apologies.

You doctors.

I know we can never rely on you.

You know, I don't mind being scolded

by the smartest hostess in London.

- Dr. Jekyll, do sit over there.

- Thank you. Good evening.

Giles. Colonel. My special apologies

to you, Lady Colburn.


- Behaving yourself?

- No.

- A doctor's life, huh, Harry?

- The more patients, the colder the soup.
