The Elderberries by Corey Pandolph and Phil Frank and Joe Troise for January 15, 2006
The Professor: What are you watching this time, General? The General: Oh...it's one of those really grim hospital soap operas. Look! There's some poor guy, wired up to a monitor, practically comatose, existing on nothing but liquids...man!! I'd hate to end up like that!! The Professor: May I share an observation, my friend? It would appear that you're already there! The General: Look!! A friend is trying to talk to himi, but the guy's unable to hear him!!
