Hypertension gets your blood pressure up
kevin olzak31 December 2016
"The Check Up" opens with the family worrying about James, who has been coming home in a foul mood lately. Michael reads up on the subject of hypertension aka high blood pressure, the leading cause of death among black people, hoping that their father doesn't suffer from it. A shorter temper and instant magnification of molehills into mountains are coupled with the wanton destruction of a worn out kitchen chair, prompting JJ's famous quip: "I'm sure glad he didn't get upset!" Finally convinced to have a check up, the doctor (Dean Santoro) confirms that it's not hypertension, just an excess of cholesterol, so everyone can relax.
