To Martinus's horror, his embarrassing blood-phobia becomes the talk of the town. Plumber de Groot even mounts a fake gushing wound crisis to make fun of doc in the pub. The local radio even feeds a generally spreading fear that his medical performances wold be dangerously hindered. When teacher Lisa calls him to examine junior genius Bas van Deurse, who fainted after a gym fall but is suspected of malingering, their unsolicited layman opinions infuriate Martinus, who refers them to hospital, where nothing serious is diagnosed. At night, Bas has a grave crisis, which the repentant MD now recognizes as life-threatening spleen crisis. The helicopter is too far and the ambulance late, so improvised emergency is the bright knave's only hope. In hospital, the source of the rumor becomes clear.
