The snake pit (from IMDb:)
Virginia: It was strange, here I was among all those people, and at the same time I felt as if I were looking at them from some place far away, the whole place seemed to me like a deep hole and the people down in it like strange animals, like... like snakes, and I've been thrown into it... yes... as though... as though I were in a snake pit...
Dr. Kik: A snake pit?
Virginia: Later, weeks later, I understood. I remembered once reading in a book that long ago they used to put insane people into pits full of snakes. I think they figured that something which might drive a normal person insane, might shock an insane person back into sanity. Did you ever hear of that?
Dr. Kik: Yes.
Virginia: Well, it was just as though they'd thrown me into a snake pit. And I was shocked into thinking that maybe I wasn't as sick as the others... and I really might get well.
Dr. Gifford: Now now, doctor, we're not trying to minimize the importance of the treatment you're giving your patient.
Dr. Curtis: The trouble is for you each case is 'the one,' and for us it's one of thousands.
Doctor Kik: Yes, Curtis, one of thousands, even millions. But only by trying to make each case 'the one' can we really help the patient.
Dr. Curtis: I happen to have here some of the more recent statistics. Ah yes, here they are. Sometimes even we doctors must face reality.
Virginia Stuart Cunningham: "What's the matter with me? Is it a brain tumor?" Robert Cunningham: "You've had a nervous breakdown..." Virginia Stuart Cunningham: "Nervous breakdown... That doesn't sound so bad, does it!"
Mrs. Greer: "Good afternoon, my dear. I don't think I've had the pleasure of seeing you here before." Virginia Stuart Cunningham: "I'm Virginia Cunningham. I came from Five." Mrs. Greer: "Nobody comes to One from Five. Even I had to spend a few days in Two before coming here. And I, my dear, have -- money." Virginia Stuart Cunningham: "That must be convenient." Mrs. Greer: "My husband, Mr. Greer, is VERY wealthy. I have more jewels than I can possibly wear. You of course, are a... charity patient?" Virginia Stuart Cunningham: "Oh, no... It so happens that MY husband, Mr. Cunningham, is very wealthy. My diamonds simply weigh me down." Mrs. Greer: "*I* have the Hope Diamond!" Virginia Stuart Cunningham: "I have the Hopeless Emerald! It carries the Cunningham curse. You've probably read about it."
