Patch Adams is a comedy film based on fictionalization of the life of Hunter Adams, who attended medical school to combine the career goals of becoming a doctor and a clown.

- When I said I had a crush on you, you didn't say... "No way, loser. I'd rather have a lobotomy by a leper." That means something.
- If you want to be a clown, go join the circus. Patients don't need to be entertained. They don't need a friend. They need a doctor.
- If you don't like me, just say it.
- I don't like you!
- Why don't you like me?
- Because you make my effort a joke! I want to be a doctor! This isn't a game to me! This isn't playtime! This is serious business!
