Cheryl: Let’s get Ms. Novak’s tickets ready. She may be stopping by this afternoon.
Marie: Paul, are you OK?
Paul: No. I feel awful.
Cheryl: What’s wrong?
Paul: I’ve got this horrible cold. I’m sneezing, and my back is killing me. I’ve got this pain in my hip. My neck has been bothering me all day. And I have a stomachache.
Marie: You may have to go see a doctor.
Paul: No! I hate doctors.
Cheryl: I wonder what could be wrong?
Bob: Maybe he’s allergic to work.
Paul: I’m not kidding here. I’m in pain.
Bob: I used to want to be a doctor, you know. Say “Ahhh.”
Bob: Now I remember why I didn’t become a doctor.
Cheryl: Paul, you really must get some medical help.
Bob: A little acupuncture might help you feel better.
Paul: Stay away from me.
Cheryl: Dr. Anderson is meeting Mr. Evans downstairs in the café. Should we ask her to come up? She may be able to help.

Paul: Stop it.
Cheryl: How long have you been feeling this way?
Paul: I got the cold last night, and the pain in my back started this morning.
Bob: Want to try a little spiritual healing?
Paul: You’re making me laugh.
Bob: Laughter is the best medicine, you know.
Paul: But it hurts!
