The clip talking to doctor about losing leg from Born on the Fourth of July (1989) with Tom Cruise
Let's see what's wrong with this.
They tell me if we don't get this pump working,
they'll cut my leg off. I want my leg.
Do we have another pump?
It's the only one, Eddie.
Ron. It's Ron Kovic.
Sorry, man. Ron.
You--You are a doctor?
It's the Vietnam war. Cutbacks.
The government's not giving us the money we need
to take care of you guys.
We're doing our best. It's really too bad.
It's not fair.
I've tried hard to keep this leg.
I've been strapped in this bed for four months
so I could keep this leg.
Maybe I can rig up a substitute.
I'll look in the basement and see what we got.
You're coming back?
Let go, Ron. Let go.
We really did try to help Mr. Kovic.
