Dr. Bell. Say, are you kidding me?

- No, why?

- You don't know Bell?

He's the chief of staff.

One of the biggest surgeons in America.


Why, he just stopped me in the

hall and offered to help me.


For a beginner,

you're not doing so bad.

We'll see if we can

find one that fits.

Here, try that.

- Oh, that's much better.

- You better slip off your dress.

Oh, it's okay.

Oh, I suppose so.

I guess everybody around here

has seen more than I've got.

Oh, don't be embarrassed.

You can't show me a thing.

I just came from the delivery room.

What are you doing here,


I come on behalf of this big institution

to welcome the new sister to our midst.

You'll find we're just one big,

Beat it, Eagan.

- You're not sore, are you?

- I'm not laughing, veterinary.

Take my tip and keep

There's only one guy that can do a

nurse any good, a patient with dough.

Catch one with a fever and a low pulse,

make him think you saved his life...

- ...and you'll be getting somewhere.

- Will I?

- And doctors are no good either.

- Oh, no?

What for? They never marry nurses.

And the trouble with

interns is they do.

All a wife means to an intern is someone to

sit in his office when he starts practice...

...and play nurse the rest

of her life without pay.

- Oh, I shouldn't like that.

- Thing to do is to land an appendicitis case.

- They've all got dough.

- Oh.

Gee, you look like an

ad for Sloan's Liniment.

I don't care. As long as it means
