The love scene between Matthew Modine and Daphine Zuniga was almost to the point of controversy between the studio and Director Thom Eberhardt. The studio wanted a more "steamier" love scene between the two and spent an entire Saturday afternoon which lasted four hours reshooting the sequence much to Eberhardt and Zuniga's misery. In editing, they tried endlessly to make the scene work cutting, trimming and massaging it to make fit the film tonewise. The studio previewed the film with this scene one time and Jeffery Katzenberg the then CEO of Disney, was not happy with the scene and agreed with Eberhardt to cut it out because it did not work.

He's human. Not superhuman, just human. He did what he thought he had to do because he wanted to be a doctor more than anything else in the world and you ruined this for him.
There is another scene where the characters are all in a bar, and they are talking about their residencies. One version that was shown has a close up of the main characters at a table and one says, "I want to get a job, working in a quality hospital with quality patients." On Showtime's version there are camera scans to several other people in the bar. You hear the quote in the background, but do not hear who said the phrase. See more
