And put this gown on.

Sonny:

Fill the whole thing.

Look like you can.

Oh, thank you.

I'll do the best I can.

God, it's cold in here.

A little longer?

It keeps my hands warm.

Sonny:

Hello, is this x-ray?

Woman:

Stand still.

Hold your breath,

And you will not speak.

God, it's dark.

Well, you're lucky,

'Cause Im ugly.

Now, you will drink this down

Without stopping.

Now, you will drink this down

Without stopping.

No jokes, please.

All right, here we go.

Don't be alarmed.

Now, I am just going

To insert this tube.

Insert what tube?

Don't insert--

Insert the tube where?

Where? Aah!

That's where. Just let it

Fill your lower abdomen.

I can't hold it!

I can't hold it!

Well, think of it

As a contest.

I'm losing the contest!

I can't hold it!

I tell you,

I can't hold it! Aah!

Aah! Ooh,schweinhund!

To look at it...

At the most

Negative level.

I'm comfortable.

The most negative level.

I don't even feel sick.

I feel sick, but I don't

Feel like Im dying.

I feel sick, but I don't

Feel like Im dying.

I feel lousy,

But I don't feel

Like Im dying!

But I don't feel

Like Im dying!

People kept saying, "you're

Losing so much weight.

You look great."

"god, you look great.

You're losing

So much weight!"
