what is that supposed to mean? well, headaches can be caused by stress situations. um, i'm a great believer in psychosomatic illness. hey, doc, maybe you could help me-- maybe you could help me a little bit. i've been having a little trouble. see, i've been having them baby heart attacks. well, uh, you need a baby heart specialist. here's my bill. 30--hey, doc. oh, doc, wait a minute. you forgot something. [thudding] aah! hi, fred. [louder] hi, fred! what? i said hi, fred. oh. i mean, was that wrong? i mean, i came over, so i said "hi" and "fred,"
what are you talking about? well, i'm talking about a person arriving in another person's yard and--and greeting that person with the word "hi" followed by his first name to wit hi, fred. hi, grady. oh, hi, fred. say, fred, how's lamont? he's not doing too good. he's at the clinic now. oh, wow. that's been going on for 2 weeks. you think he'd be better by now. who's he seeing today? he's seeing a psychiatrist. and for goodness sake, grady, don't say nothing to nobody. aw, fred, now wait a minute. you know i wouldn't say anything. well, that-- that's nothing to be ashamed of. we're all modern people, and we know that just because you see a psychiatrist, that doesn't mean that you're crazy. that's right. yeah. anyway, i'll see you a little later, fred. and when lamont comes home, tell him that i said, "hiya, cuckoo."
i think i see a pattern here. oh, yeah? what is it? you've never felt comfortable lying on that couch, have you? no, no, no, doctor, not really. why? is it my approach? no. it's your cologne. i see something i'd like to go with. oh, you found a cure for my headache? no, not a cure. i found the cause, and that's the first step. you know, find the cause, cure the cause, then the headache will cure itself. oh, great. ok. lay it on me. what is it? well, it's a pathological patriphobia, resulting in a repressed psychogenic malaise. d what does that mean? you hate your father.
you all right? i'm fine, pop. oh, i tell you-- hey, how come you got the couch made up like a bed? well, i thought when you got home, you'd be too sick to go upstairs. of course you did. that's another thing i love about you, pop-- the concern that you feel for me. i love you, i love you, i love you, i love you, i love you, i love you,
say, w-w-what's happened? you act like you've been hit by a sugar truck. there's nothing wrong with me, pop. look at this. i feel great. you know, i went down to the doctor, and he gave me a new lease on life. i feel fan--look at--look at this. tennis, anyone? huh? well, what else the doctor say? i don't want to talk about it. i've got a headache.
