Jake Barnes: Doctor, don't you think it's about time you stopped lying to me?

Army doctor: What do you want to know, Barnes?

Jake Barnes: Am I going to be all right?

Army doctor: There'll be certain aftereffects from your wound, but that's to be expected. The important thing is that the shell fragment that entered your back missed your spine, so you'll be able to walk and move about absolutely normally. However...

Jake Barnes: Go on.

Army doctor: You're going to be impotent.
