The main patient walks into the doctor’s office. (You can have the patients open an imaginary door while someone off stage rings a bell.) He walks up to the receptionist.

Patient #1: (coughing) I’m here to see the doctor.

Receptionist: Sign in, please and have a seat.

Patient #1 signs the clipboard and sits down at the chair closest to the receptionist.

Patient #2 enters the doctor’s office sneezing.

Patient #2: (sneezing) I’m here to see the doctor.

Receptionist: Sign in, please and have a seat.

Ten seconds go by and Patient #1 starts to sneeze a little, while patient #2 is not sneezing
quite as much. A few more seconds go by and Patient #1 is now sneezing and coughing.

Patient #2 has stopped sneezing.

Patient #2: (to the receptionist) I seem to be fine all of a sudden. I’d like to cancel my appointment.

Receptionist: Very well. Have a nice afternoon.

Patient #2 exits the stage.

Patient #3 enters the doctor’s office scratching his entire body like he has an extreme case of chicken pox.

Patient #3: (scratching furiously) I’m here to see the doctor.

Receptionist: Sign in, please and have a seat.

Ten seconds go by and Patient #1 starts to itch and scratch a little, while patient #3 is not
scratching quite as much.
A few more seconds go by and Patient #1 is now sneezing, coughing and scratching.

Patient #3 has stopped scratching.

Patient #3: (to the receptionist) I’m going to cancel my appointment. I’m fine now. Thanks

Receptionist: Very well. Have a nice afternoon.

Patient #3 exits the stage.

Patient #4 enters the doctor’s office howling like a coyote every few seconds and looking
embarrassed and worried, as though this condition will never go away.

Patient #4: (howling every few seconds)

I’m here to (howl) see the doctor.

Receptionist: (wide-eyed) Um, sign in, please and have a seat.

Ten seconds go by and Patient #1 lets out a little howl, while patient #4 is not howling quite as much.
A few seconds go by and Patient #1 is now sneezing, coughing, scratching and howling.

Patient #4 has stopped howling.

Patient #4: (to the receptionist) I’d like to cancel my appointment? I’m feeling okay, but this person needs help.

Receptionist: Very well. Good bye.

Patient #4 exits the stage.

A Pregnant Lady enters the doctor’s office and approaches the receptionist.

Patient #1 sees the lady and gets extremely frightened.

Patient #1: AUGH!

Patient #1 runs off stage.
