Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullet (1940)
Defense Attorney: So while no cures can be attributed to '606,' 38 deaths resulted from it's use?
Dr. Emil Von Behring: 39.
Defense Attorney: 39? You know of another death?
Dr. Emil Von Behring: Yes, syphilis. The death of syphilis itself.
Dr. Hans Wolfert: Dr. von Behring you have written and lectured against the Ehrlich theory.
Dr. Emil Von Behring: Yes, I did, Dr. Wolfert, but you must understand it is the task of science to discover the truth. There is no shame attached to the recognition of error.
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: [His final message, on his deathbed, to his research team] There will be epidemics of greed, hate and ignorance. We must fight them in life as we fought syphilis in the laboratory. We must fight, fight. We must never, never stop fighting.
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: I hope this horse is good and strong. H's going to be very sick.
Stable Boy: He used to be a racehorse, doctor - a champion!
Dr. Emil Von Behring: If this horse does what we want him to, he'll be the most famous horse in the world.
Stable Boy: He's too old to race again.
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: Well, this is a race against death.
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: [about his fellow doctors] To argue with them is like discussing colors with the color-blind.
Becker: You assistants seem to be doing all the work. What does Dr. Ehrlich do?
Dr. Hata: He thinks!
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: I want no legal advice. This is a question of truth. I'm only trying to help the court understand the real nature of these deaths.
Judge: Dr. Ehrlich, I'm afraid your observations are irrelevant to this issue.
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: [In perplexed astonishment] Irrelevant?... Irrelevant?
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: [about his felow doctors] To argue with them is like discussing colors with the color-blind.
Professor Hartmann: [Angrily] Ehrlich!
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: Yes?
Professor Hartmann: You seem in a great hurry.
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: Well, I must get back to the hospital.
Professor Hartmann: If I were you, I wouldn't bother.
Dr. Paul Ehrlich: Why not?
Professor Hartmann: Because you are no longer employed there.
