with all this paint remover.

Sometimes I get a headache

from all the fumes.

- You should be taking a B complex.

- Say again?

Well, a loading dose of a B-12

would help to enhance the cerebral...

- Never mind.

- No, no, no.

Why did you stop? That sounded great.

Well, no, it just occurred to me

that I was suggesting

you take a jar of vitamins,

when the smart thing to do

would be to leave the door open.

Look at that. I saved myself $5.95.

I was in the neighborhood

looking at some houses

and I thought I would take you and

your wife up on that rain check for lunch.

Great. Well, Tracy is out at her class

but I can get cleaned up

and we could go out ourselves.

- Sounds good.

- All right. Okay, I'll be right back.

So this is a real Victorian, huh?

Yeah, buried under

a hundred years of paint.

It was part of the underground railroad

during the civil war.

What it lacks in comfort,

it makes up for in history.

You know anything about architecture?

Architecture? Architecture is my life.

If I hadn't been a doctor,

I'd have been a...

I'd have been a building.

Is this a Degas?

Yeah. I think it's original.

Tracy's father gave it to her.

She's been having these abdominal pains.

- How often?

- Maybe once every couple of days.

How long do they last?

Maybe half a minute,

sometimes a little longer.

Is she seeing someone?

Yeah, a doctor in Boston

named Lillianfield.

David Lillianfield. Do you know him?

I've heard of him.

Lillianfield is a good man.

The thing is, we really wanna have kids.

Tracy is nuts about it. So am I.

I'll tell you what.

Give it another couple of weeks and if there

is no change, have her come by and see me.

- All right.

- Hey, Stanley.

Hey, Doc, it hurts when I do this.

Then don't do that.

And get some new jokes, Stanley.
