Synopsis: Plagued by uninsured patients, greedy insurance companies, heartless health care conglomerates, and stressed out doctors, the health care delivery system is on the verge of a total breakdown - and Jake Gorman couldn't be happier. The egomaniacal medical malpractice attorney has it all. His face adorns billboards, his ads run constantly on TV and radio, while his army of informants tip him off to profitable new cases. Suing doctors has made Jake a famous and very wealthy man. Jake never met a doctor he couldn't sue, until now. As a cost cutting measure at its hospitals, R.I.P Healthcare has developed the perfect doctor. MD 63 (a.k.a. Robo-Doc) is a robotic doctor whose data bank contains all the medical knowledge in the world, and therefore Robo-Doc CAN'T make a mistake. Robo-Doc was designed to save both money and lives. Success would bring flawless, affordable health care to all and spell ruin for Jake Gorman.

I'm begging you.

I've got wall-to-wall patients here.

They're going to have to get better

on their own, Richard.

I'm finished. I'm done.

Finito. Gone. Hasta la bye-bye.

Game over.

See this?

Now if you'll excuse me,

I have a clown to kill.

That's it! I need an administrator!

Get Buttkiss down here now!

Mr. Abrams, I'm Gene Buttkiss.

I'm the Chief Administrator

here at North Mercy.

Your health is very important

to you, isn't it, sir?

It sure is.

And what would you say it would be worth

for my staff to nurse you back to health?

Well, you can't put a price on health.

- Try.

- A million dollars.

Oh, a million dollars! I like that!

And how much are you

actually going to pay us?

Well, I have no money.

I have no insurance.

Oh! No money? Oh, I see.

So, for a million dollars' worth of service,

you're going to pay us the grand total of,

I don't know, for argument's sake

let's just use a ball park figure of nothing!

Zip! Nada! Goose egg!

You are outta here!

I don't know about you, but I feel better.

- Buttkiss!

- Oh, Dr. Roskin. What can I do for you?

Murphy quit. I need more doctors.

More doctors, right, sure,

I'll just pull a few more out of my uh... ear.

I mean it, I don't care where they come

from, I need more docs.

Alright Richard, I'll call corporate headquarters.

But until then,

I've got some medical advice for you.

Don't hold your breath.

Thanks for calling RIP,

sorry for keeping you on hold for so long.

How can I help you?



Make it quick.

Uh, yeah. Sorry to bother you sir,

Bothering me is your job,

Buttkiss, and you do it very well.

I see.

Well, you tell Dr. Roskin

that he'll have his new doctor.

- First thing tomorrow morning.

- Thank you, sir.

I was, um, right, okay, good.

Thank you.
