Hi everyone,

There's this thing I have been wondering about... In the not-so-good movie adaptation of the book (spoiler alert, but not much of a masterpiece anyway ;-), it is revealed that Dr. Paige Marshall is in fact not a doctor, but a deluded patient who stays at St. Anthony's voluntarily.

However, at some point in the book, there's a moment when one of the nurses calls Paige "Ms. Marshall", to which she replies in a very defensive way. At some later moment, it is revealed that Paige is in fact married. So do you think there is any real suggestion in the book that Paige might not be a real doctor as well, or did I miss something?
