A confused patient

– I mean, you’re a doctor, right? Am I dying? Can you tell me that?
– No.
– No, you can’t tell me?
– I can’t tell you.
– You can’t tell me if you can’t tell me?
– No.
– No, you can’t tell me… because you’re not allowed to?
– No.

(Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Synecdoche, New York” by Charlie Kaufman, 2008)
