a couple of days to read it.

- Yeah.

Come on. Anything. Any comment.

Anything to tide me through.

Nice typing.

- Something go down the drain?

- You know something I don't?

Yeah. You look like shit, Hal.

And I should know.

I'm an expert on the subject.

What's the matter? Heat getting to you?

Or just up all night toiling against

the publisher's deadline?

No, I was up all night

consulting my physician.

Ah. Playing doctor with Elaine.

Speaking of too hot.

Well, you know, the air conditioning

at the med centre was working.

- She was on call all night.

- Tell me.

How do you do it in a hospital?

Feet in the stirrups?

Where else?

Heigh-ho, Silver.

Yeah, well, you're gonna have

to forget about that wild life...

once you become a full professor.

You son of a bitch. I wondered how long

you were gonna keep me in suspense.

He said yes, right?

So the promotion's mine?

Yeah, another rung up the ladder,

though it's not offiicial yet.

But it wouldn't hurt if you showed up

at the art gallery dedication tonight.

- I'll be there with bells on.

- Yeah.

It'll be your last chance to kiss ass

before the Christmas break.

You know, if you hadn't helped me

with the outline and structure...

I probably wouldn't even have

the book contract.

Yeah, I know. But I'm not gonna

take the rap for that one, Hal.

- I'm serious. I wanna thank you

for putting in the good word.

- Right.

Hey, meet me in the offiice.

I got a bottle in the desk.

We'll have a drink, all right?

- All right.

I won't tell if you won't tell.

- All right, I'll see you later.

- Okay.

Hey, Chuck, you spelled

''carnival'' with an E!

Hey, Dex. Dex, you oughta

slow down in this heat.

I thought you were a PhD,

Dr Corey, not an MD.

You know what I am.

I'm an assistant professor...
