Tell me. Joe or Joseph, why do you want to be a doctor?
That's easy. I want to help people.
Come one Joe, you can be honest with me. Why do you want to be a doctor?
Well, uh, I want to make lots of money.
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
