Quotes

Kyong Ja: The exorcism would have to be performed by a Priestess. Once the spirits are gone, my grandfather would let you operate.

When the Spirit Moves You
19 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When an elderly Korean man is brought into camp, he resists treatment because he fears evil spirits. At this point, things go wrong. Potters cigarette lighter stops working, blood pressure machines malfunction, the PA system goes down, and lights go out in the Operation Room. The granddaughter of the old man tells Hawkeye that the only way to get the guy to agree to surgery is to purge the camp by way of an exorcism. Of course, Frank is aghast. He asks what the man upstairs is going to think and Potter says, "You mean General MacArthur!" Father Mulcahy, being such a cool character, sees God at work in mysterious ways. Of course, it's going to work out. Buy it or not!
