Re: EpDis: Walkabout

Not this episode but I thought this 'Believers' quote explained a lot about Franklin:

Quote:
People come to doctors because
they want us to be gods. They
want us to 'make it better' or
'make it not so.' They want to be
healed. Whatever, they want, they
come to me when their prayers
aren't enough.
(the heart of it)
Well, if I have to take the
responsibility, then I claim the
authority too.
It's why he's so consumed by his work and also why nobody and nothing else gets close to him.
