Scene: A clinic in a hospital. A Woman waits next to a curtained off treatment area; a nurse approaches her.
Nurse: IN HERE PLEASE, MRS ---
(The woman follows the nurse into the treatment area. There is a chair and a bed).
Nurse: IF YOU’D LIKE TO REMOVE YOUR OUTER GARMENTS AND MAKE YOURSELF COMFORTABLE, THE DOCTOR WILL BE WITH YOU SHORTLY. (Smiling).
Woman: THANK YOU.
(The nurse leaves; the woman strips down to her bra and panties, shivers slightly, then lies down on the bed. A few seconds later the curtains swish open and a boy walks into the treatment area. He is ten, perhaps twelve years old, dressed in school uniform, and carrying a stethescope. He pulls the curtain closed behind him).
Boy: (With a child’s voice). HELLO.
Scene: Another hospital room. The same nurse is standing over a table preparing a hypodermic. The woman rushes in.
Woman: (Excited, panicky). NURSE, NURSE, THERE’S A TWELVE YEAR OLD BOY IN MY CUBICLE.
Nurse: (Unconcerned): THAT’S ALL RIGHT; HE’S THE JUNIOR DOCTOR.
