Kanzo sensei

Almost all my sick patients
have epidemic hepatitis.

It seems you doubt this...
No, I wouldn't say doubt.
But glucose it in short supply,
and the army wants us
to keep tabs.

Then convey my answer
quite precisely!

For 5 years, epidemic hepatitis
has spread wildly.

If we don't deal effectively
with this problem,

I worry for my patient,
for my nation,

and, very sincerely,
for His Majesty, the Emperor.

Just as with smallpox, cholera,
malaria and tuberculosis

hepatitis must be battled vigorously.
You're absolutely right.
Well, pass that along to the army.
One moment, please...
We'll have to account to them.
- Like little children?
- Well, in a way...

How old are you?
Going on fifty.
Mentally, you're a small child,
and physically...

you have hepatitis!
10 sen?
What are you doing here?
Cut off my morphine supply.
Army orders.

They tell me I use
too much glucose.

A surgeon can't be
short of morphine.

Sure, but personal use
must be cut down.

Don't worry,
I hardly use it anymore.

You know everyone calls you
"Doctor Liver"?
