Producers' notes

This is a very funny reversal of fortune, and made us laugh.

  • We don’t think Susan should laugh out loud at the doctor’s lack of knowledge, only smile wryly to herself
  • Pay particular attention to the second page so the gag of doctor / patient switch is both subtle but also well-executed in tone and wording (some of our readers didn’t get the reversal gag)

Remember to write a line with a CUT TO: For when the blast wave hits them. A great funny moment to sit between the emotional ones.
