The clip getting treatment for ben Part 2 from The Skeleton Key (2005) with Kate Hudson, Maxine Barnett
And when this stuff works, it's because someone believes it works?
And if you thought, you know...
magic made you sick...

Would he believe he could be uncrossed?
What's the nature of his condition?
He can't speak. Barely moves. He had a stroke...
but he seems to think someone else made him that way.
And you want to know what happened to him?
You went in there. You actually went in.
Are you out of your mind?
Come on. Haven't you ever heard of psychosomatic treatment?
Yeah. But this is not that.
How much of a patient's recovery depends on his believing he can?
What recovery? This is hospice.
You're just supposed to help this guy die.
He believes in this stuff.
So what? Who is he to you?

Not this one, the last, or the one before.
Why are the two of you so attached?

Attached is better.
I know. Cary, I'm sorry. Okay?

You want to be a nurse and you just walked out of a witch doctor's.
It's not for me.
