and when the night starts crawling in,

my eyelids won't get heavy

and my arms get numb and heavy

and my legs get dull and heavy and...

When I count to three

and press your forehead,

you will awaken and stay awake.

- One, two, three.

- Oh, God.

Why don't you step outside

and get a little air.

Sure. I mean, sure.

Have you got a cigarette, please?

I'm awfully sorry, doctor. Really.

Do you have a match?

Oh, thank you very...

Doctor, I'm awfully sorry,

kids, really.



Preston, you are no longer

You are as you are now.

And when I count to three and snap

my fingers, you will awaken.

One, two, three.

Do you feel all right?

- Yes, sir.

- What is it?

Sir, nothing happened to me.

I didn't go under.

Most people don't believe

they do the first time.

- Well, I know that, sir...

- But that is not your case.

Oh, no, sir. No. Is that all?

On Wednesday, when we

meet again, I want to discuss...

- What are you doing there?

- Taking off my shoe and...


- Any particular reason, or just bored?

See you all Wednesday.

Out like a light.

If you don't remember,

he was telling you

to take off your shoes and socks.

Oh, Marc,

did you receive one of these?

Oh, just routine meeting,

nothing important.

Doctor, could I see you

for just one minute, please?

- Don't you feel well?

- Yeah, sure, sure.

But I gotta talk to you

about something important.

If you call my secretary...

I'll see you this afternoon.

- She'll make an appointment.

- But it's just one question, that's all.

Couldn't you ask me

at a Wednesday lecture?

If you come a little early,

I'm sure it's possible...

Oh, my God.

Come in. Come here, hey.

Come, come.

This way, please. This way.

Come in. Here.

Yes. Come in, come in.

This way, this way, please.
