A Clockwork Orange Scene 19

Scene 19

Scene 19

  • Alex wakes up as a mummy.
  • He is basically in a full-body cast in a hospital.
  • He moans, and a woman somewhere moans in response.
  • It seems that a doctor and nurse are, um, playing doctor next door, and they realize Alex has regained consciousness.
  • We see newspaper headlines that the Minister of the Interior has been blamed for Alex's fate, because clearly his cure went wrong.
  • Alex's parents visit him in the hospital.
  • Alex says they're not welcome to visit him, and his pink-haired mother sobs.
  • His dad said maybe everything was their fault in a way, and Alex can come home when he is healed.
