1,047 - Having Breathing Problems

October 31st, 2014

Episode 156 of 489 episodes

Every breath you take, every move you make, we’ll be watching you. Find out why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:28 Explanations: 3:11 Fast dialog: 14:25 Russ: Why are you wheezing like that? Cheryl: I’m not wheezing. I’m just a little short of breath. My lungs feel like they’ve closed up. Russ: Maybe you should get that checked out. You could have asthma. Cheryl: Do you really think so? My nasal passages have been stopped up, so I just thought I had a bad cold. My sinuses hurt, too. Russ: I’m not a doctor, but you may have something more serious, maybe bronchitis or pneumonia. You need a chest x-ray or something. Cheryl: Wow, so this could be something really serious? Russ: Why do you sound hopeful that you have a serious condition? Cheryl: I’m not. That would be stupid. Russ: And yet, you sounded positively giddy that you might be laid up for a couple of weeks. Does this have anything to do with your upcoming business trip to Abrahamville? Cheryl: If you had to go to Abrahamville, wouldn’t you wish for an out, too – any out? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
