Mr. Curry: ' Just because you have a dot on your big toe does not mean you have
ventracalatiationary thrombosis, Maggie. In fact, I'm sure you DONT.'
* after a pause he adds firmly, ' I love you. '
Me: ' Did you hear what House said? About the twitch in that kid's leg and- '
Mr. Curry: ' Do you want me to call Hugh Laurie and have him diagnose you? Cuz you
you know what he'd say? He'd say you are a nutter. Because you are. '
* after a pause he adds with a kiss, ' I love you. '
Me: ' What about this? Feel this, come on, just feel it? ' I am gesturing
toward my neck.
Mr. Curry: Sighs. Reaches over, feels. ' It feels exactly the same as it did
two years ago when you saw the doctor and he told you it was fine,
totally fine. '
Me: Not even meekly: ' Are you SURE? '
Mr. Curry: ' I'm sure. Can I unpause the show now? '
Me: ' K. '
Mr. Curry: After a brief interval. ' I think House would be perfect for you. You
think he's hot and he could diagnose all your problems. '
Me: ' I already KNOW all my problems. You diagnosed me. '
Mr. Curry: ' I did? '
Me: ' Yeah, I'm nutters. Can you be quiet so we can watch this seizure? '
