A loosely transcripted excerpt from Hub's introductory meeting with Dr. Mindy at his new clinic (the curiously-named "bargain" primary care center: "Clinic for the Elderly and...Some Adults"):
Dr. Mindy: Mister...(squints at file)...Sk...Sk..."Skouse"?
Hub: (Sighs, checks own pulse).
Dr. Mindy: Let's see here...(squints at file)...um, do you take drugs?
Hub: No. (begins building a LEGO model of a military assault vehicle in his mind).
Dr. Mindy: So no drugs? None at all? (twirls pink Hello, Kitty! pen, tucks it behind ear).
Hub: No. "None at all" (makes bunny-eared air quotes). My only vices are an occasional beer and sugared soda.
Dr. Mindy: (eyes widen) Oh, really? And how many "beers" and "sugary sodas" (attempts bunny ears--does it wrong)...would you say you drink in a day, Mister...Sk...Sk...
Hub: (interrupts) --As many as it takes, Doctor...Doctor...(squints at name tag)...Mindy. Oh, sorry, I mean "Resident Mindy."
Hub reports that while he is both fine with having a female "sorta" doctor and being called "Skouse," he will be looking for an internist whose interests go beyond illicit drug use and how to keep someone "comfortable" until death.
