Hey, George! Not a bad day?
- Yeh, I'm gonna see an neirologist. - An o what neirologist?
Can I see?
What'll they think up next?
First floor, second elevator, please.
- Hello! - Yes?
I have an appointment with Dr. Haber.
- Name, please. - George Orr.
You can hang your raincoat over there.
Doctor, see overdose.
- Dr. Haber? - Oh! Mr. Orr!
It's a pleasure to meet you. Come in.
Would you have a sit?
Oh, no, thank you. I don't smoke.
Well, it's ok!
Don't be nervous, Mr. Orr.
That's better. Do you have your VT card?
Oh. Yes, here.
Quite a dangerous concoction, won't you say?
You have a dream problem, don't you?
- How did you know? - No great wit,
I'm an oneirologist, Mr. Orr, a dream specialist.
- Well, all I want is to stop dreaming. - May I call you George?
Yeh, I guess
- Call me Bill, if you like. - Oh, well that's ok!
However you would feel comfortable.
Dr. Haber, what are we supposed to do here?
A sort of.
Why don't you tell me about it?
- You'd think I was insane. - I make no judgments, George.
I'm here to help you and that's all. Give it a try.
Suppose I dream, that there's no Dr. Haber.
Now, tomorrow, when I wake up, not only are you gone, but you never existed.
Pretty revealing, wouldn't you say?
- Oh, no, I didn't mean that, personally. - Perfectly ok.
You can tell me to go to hell, if you like. It's a part of building our trust.
- I didn't mean that. - I'd like you to lie down now, George.
It's all right, go on.
It's all right, George, just relax. Lie back.
Recently good health, slightly undernourished, passive, repressed,
maybe in intelligence confining.
- You're relaxed, yes? - Yes. - Good.
Think back to the first one. How old were you?
And she was always in the way,
She was 30, kind of sexy,
How can I have done it! She was my aunt, for God's sake!
And that was it.
