Quote #10

Dr. Stockmann: "I am the strongest man in the whole world." (5.306)

Wow, it takes a lot of pride to make a statement like this. The Doctor says this because he's alone in his beliefs, and he feels that the fact that he still sticks to his principles makes him strong. What do you think? Does the Doctor have the biggest muscles on earth, or just the biggest head?
