The clip Jimmy's interview from John Q (2002)
We go now to Hope Memorial Hospital. live... Tuck Lampley.
As you can see. The crowd in front of Hope Memorial is growing.
The S.W.A.T. Team has arrived. The situation is becoming tense.
Standing next to me is James Palumbo. friend of John Archibald.
Mr Palumbo. What can you tell us about John Archibald?
You know. I got to be honest. Tuck.
This whole thing sucks.
It all could have been avoided so incredibly easy.
None of this had to happen if John had been a frigging millionaire or if his last name was Rockefeller. but sometimes John don't get it.
He don't understand that what we hold sacred in this country isn't values.
It's value that's important. We got haves. We got have-nots.
We've got white collar. blue collar. And no collar.
Inside there we got surgery. outpatient surgery. Out-of-luck surgery.
There's a lot of people out there who don't got 250 grand in their billfold.
To shame a man like that and back him into a corner.
seems to me that something is out of whack. Not someone.
But what do I know? I'm a factory worker.
I see this is making you upset. but if you could look into the camera and speak to John Q right now. what would you say to him?
I'm there with you. and you take care.
That's one man's opinion.
Live at the crisis at Hope Memorial. this is Tuck Lampley.
