Stegman barges right in just then and pulls "the world-famous Dr. Hook" from the room. "Looks like Dr. Hook is in trouble," Rickman voices over. "Looks like Dr. Hook is in trouble," Bad-alie says out loud. Sigh. There comes a level of creative power a person reaches when said person can write or create something and no one's allowed to tell him it might not be such a good idea. It's why Gangs of New York was overlong, comically bad trash. Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to why this observation might be applicable here?
Druse kicks it séance-style in the solarium as Flute-y Tang: The Very Best Of Zamfir underscores the action on the soundtrack. She holds hands with a bunch of other crazies and tries to pull forth "a child come to us and speak to us!" In increasingly quicker cuts, we're back outside Rickman's room, where Stegman shows Hook what he believes to be Druse's perfectly clear MRI. Hook, though, points to one shadowy corner of the picture and argues it could be "a UBO." A what? Oh, don't worry. They'll explain it to you if you give them time. Like, exactly three seconds, for example, as Stegman laughs derisively (and on this show, besides "crazily," is there really any other kind?) and shoots back, "Unidentified Bright Object! What's next, giant alligators in the sewers?" Yes. His official diagnosis is the urban mythical condition known as "spiders in the beehive hairdo." Stegman walks away and tells Hook to join him, insisting, "I'll show you how we deal with the Mrs. Druses of the world in Boston." Hook begs off, saying that he's been on duty for the last sixteen hours, but Stegman really insists. They fight about the existence of UBOs, Stegman speeching, "Some people wish rain were beer. But it ain't." Who wishes that? Do people really talk like this? And could it really be that Stegman is on his way to catch Mrs. Druse right in the middle of her séance? But what about all of the warnings she was given? I say, WHAT ABOUT ALL OF THE WARNINGS?
