Wilbur Force: [reading an article from "Pain" magazine in the waiting room of the dentist; giggling] "The patient came to me with a large hole in his abdomen, caused by a fire poker used on him by his wife. He almost bled to death and gangrene had set in. I didn't give him much of a chance. There were other complications. The man had cancer, tuberculosis, leprosy, and a touch of the grippe. I decided to operate."

[Seymour is impersonating Dr. Farb to a new patient]

Wilbur Force: My name is Wilbur Force.

Seymour Krelboin: Wilbur Force what?

Wilbur Force: Just Wilbur Force. My first name is Wilbur, my last name is Force. I don't have a middle name.

Seymour Krelboin: Do you have an appointment?

Wilbur Force: No, but you were very highly recommended to me by one of your patients; Mrs. Shiva. I do a lot of undertaking for her relatives.

Seymour Krelboin: Well... you can see that I have a customer right now and I'm all booked up for the rest of the day, so you'll have to come back tomorrow.

Wilbur Force: Oh no, I couldn't do that. I have three or four abscesses, I touch of pyorrhea, nine or ten cavities, I lost my pivot tooth, and I'm in terrible pain!

Seymour Krelboin: I can't help you today.

Wilbur Force: That's all right. I'll just wait outside until your free.

Seymour Krelboin: I didn't mean it.

Gravis Mushnik: You didn't mean it. You never mean it. You didn't mean the time when you put up the bouquet with the 'get well' card in the funeral parlor, and sent the black lilies to that old lady in the hospital. You're fired and this time, I, Gravis Mushnik, mean it!

Burson Fouch: [to Seymour] I think he means it.
