Re: We are pregnant!

^ OMG, I'd totally forgotten...

Years ago in hospital, I overheard a physician asking his patient something along the lines of, "And how are we peeing today?" I got out of there so fast! Wasn't sure which I wanted to do most: slap him or go hysterical laughing.

I opted for the latter. Out of hearing range.

I closed the room door behind me -- to give the poor patient some privacy -- so I didn't have to run very far.

Re: We are pregnant!

^ At least the doctor didn't start acting like he was in a soap opera. That would probably freak patients out if they heard somebody go "Live, dammit, LIVE!!! I wasn't ready to play GOD today!!!!"

Although it might help if hospitals had organ music and a narrator in the background.

^ If that's a typical line from a soap opera doc... Sheesh... Make that item #536 on the list of reasons why I don't watch soaps.

Re: We are pregnant!

^ Actually I got that from Ryan Stiles on Whose Line Is It Anyway?. Although it wouldn't surprise me if that actually did happen on a soap. IIRC, soaps have actually done storylines with aliens, demonic possession, etc. Shit that would have been rejected by Dark Shadows on the basis of not being realistic enough.

The one thing that I know a soap opera would never do? A character that isn't evil.

That being said:
