Dr. Mark Hamilton:
You see sometimes a thought can be like a malignant disease that starts to eat away the willpower. When that happens, it's my business to remove the thought before it can cause destruction.
Richard Mason:
That's a very pretty theory, Doctor, but I don't quite see how you can take a thought out of a man's head. It seems to me if it's there, it's there and there's nothing can be done about it.

Transcript:
That starts to eat away
at the will power.
When that happens, it's my
business to remove the thought.
Before it can cause destruction.
That's a very pretty
theory doctor but I ..
I don't quite see how you can take
a thought out of a man's head.
It seems to me if it's there it's there,
and there's nothing to be done about it.
Good old practical Dick.
Life is so simple for engineers.
All problems solved with
a slide-rule and a T-square.
Well, what do you eminent psychoanalysts
think causes these thoughts, doctor?
Any number of things.
But I should say love and its
frustrations is the worst offender.
You see Dr Hamilton belongs to
the Freudian school of psychology.
It believes that love rather than
money is the root of all evil.
Why, it's nothing of the kind.
I beg your pardon, Dr Hamilton.
But love doesn't always cause
unhappiness and trouble.
It's man's inspiration for centuries.
Why, it's been the basis of some
of the greatest stories ever written.
Look at Romeo and Juliet.
Anthony and Cleopatra.
Abelard and Hloise.
Yes, but look what happened to them.
Dick, that's not fair.
You know what I mean.
It doesn't matter what happens
to people as long as they ..
Have something to live for.
But they didn't live for it.
They died for it.
Evelyn, darling.
Perhaps you'd better leave the entire
subject alone until you're married.
Dear, I wish I could
express myself better.
I think you expressed
yourself remarkably well.
