“I See U” - Episode 65
It’s a tail of terror terrier tale—at the hands of Nurse Maudlyn and Doctor Frombilagonga—for Gneeecey, Nicki, and Flea, held captive in Florence Ferguson Memorial’s ICU. The three are suffering from acute dimension burn. Nicki and Flea, green, viney plants sprouting out of their ears, are running high temperatures. And Gneeecey has turned into a baby. The times that the feverish canine-humanoid usually sneezes out cannot pass through his tiny, shrunken nasal passages. They seem to be waiting forever for tests and treatment, not to mention, competent care.

Music/Intro: Hi there, I’m author and radio host Vicki Solá, welcoming you to Perswayssick Radio: Unearthly Comedy. I invite you to escape with me into the bizarre dimension of Perswayssick County, where wackiness rules! The laughs begin when I morph into my alter ego, radio DJ Nicki Rodriguez and clash with the zany, alien canine-humanoid Gneeecey! And now, I turn it over to my other self, Nicki, and the gang….
SFX: [Magic Spell] [Hospital Room Ambience] [Electronic Button] [Intarface 2]
PA SYSTEM: Doctor Frombilagonga to ICU! STAT! Doctor Frombilagonga to ICU! STAT!
SOOPERFLEA, AKA FLEA, AKA FLEAGLOSSITTY FLOPPINSPLODGE: Y’know, Nicki, this Florence Ferguson Memorial Hospital ain’t as good as I thought it was. Here we are, you an’ me, crammed in this ICU room wit’ all these other patients—not that I mind bein’ wit’ you—quite the contrary, but I just don’t think they’re doin’ things right around here.
NICKI RODRIGUEZ: I agree, Flea. And it’s freezing here in the ICU. They haven’t even taken blood or done any other tests yet to see why we’re running these fevers—
F: Or why we have these green plants growin’ out of our ears. This dimension burn is terrible! I wonder how poor Zig’s doin’ over in the pediatric ICU. I hope he’s receivin’ better treatment.
SFX: [Sneakers Squeaking]
NURSE MAUDLYN: Ahem!
F: Why, Nurse Maudlyn, what are you doin’ here in ICU? I thought ya were an Emergency Room nurse.
NM: I’m qualified to work both ER and ICU. We’re short-staffed. Due to the havoc created by those monster kangaroos. And I see you both—we have video cameras—and I hear you both complaining rather incessantly. And loudly! We’ve got sick people here, y’know—
N: Yeah, I know—a whole room full of us, packed in the Intensive Care Unit here like sardines. Some of us are running high fevers and have green vines growing out of our ears.
NM: Well, we’re short of space, too.
F: May I ask, how is our Zig Gneeecey over in pediatric ICU?
N: Is his fever coming down? He was burning up! And is he still a baby, or is he growing back to normal size? Does he still sound like a kid’s piggy bank whenever he moves because of all those dimes he can’t sneeze through his tiny, shrunken nasal passages?
F: Yeah, poor Zig! We’re so worried! Are those dimes he can’t sneeze out dissolvin’, y’know, wit’ them special injections of that new drug, Dimeosacion, that Doctor Frombilagonga is prescribin’?
N: And where is Doctor Frombilagonga? They keep paging him to ICU, but he doesn’t ever seem to appear.
NM: Questions, questions. No answers yet. I’ll be back. Eventually. Meanwhile, stop contributing to the noise here! Remember, I hear you. And I see you! So, belt up—both of you!
N & F [in unison]: Hey!
N: How dare you?
F: I’ve never been spoken to like that! I know the CEO of this hospital—Fred Seemingwhale!
NM: Put a sock in it. Both of you.
SFX: [Fail Horn] [Magic Spell] [Hospital Room Ambience] [Electronic Button] [Intarface 2]
PA SYSTEM: Doctor Frombilagonga to ICU! STAT! Doctor Frombilagonga to ICU! STAT!
SFX: [Squeaking Sneakers] [Door Open] [Cartoon Slip]
N: It’s her again!
F: It’s that Nurse Maudlyn! An’—an’—she’s—
N: —she’s wheeling Gneeecey’s crib into this room!
NM: Had to move him out of pediatric ICU. He’s too disruptive!
DIROCTOR BIZZIG “ZIG” GNEEECEY: The head bone’s connected to the elbow, the elbow’s connected to the kneecap! The kneecaps’s connected to the bladder, the bladder’s connected to the bimbus! SFX: [Cartoon Baby] [Clinking Coins]
N: He’s not any better! Where is that Doctor Frombilagonga?
SFX: [Toilet Flush] [Door Open]
NM: I see him now, coming out of the restroom. Don’t be so nosey.
F: I hope he washed his hands.
N: Doesn’t sound like it.
NM: I’ll wash both your mouths out. With soap. Hospital soap.
N & F [in unison]: Hey!
G: Hay is for horses! SFX: [Horse] [Chickens] Oh no! There’s a horsey in the room! A stinkin’ wild, five-legged horsey, wearin’ a red spacesuit! Surrounded by an army of three-eyed chickens wearin’ these scary-lookin’ straw hats! Haaaalp! SFX: [Cartoon Baby] [Clinking Coins]
NM: If there were, I’d know—I’m in charge here. Now, belt up!
SFX: [Cartoon Baby] [Clinking Coins]
N: Hey, you can’t talk to a patient like that!
F: Especially a sick baby!
N: The fever’s causing him to hallucinate! Why—here’s Doctor Frombilagonga, at long last!
DOCTOR FROMBILAGONGA: I’m sorry for dee vait—I had some business to take care of. Now, I have dee charts of all tree of you here. SFX: [Rustling Papers] [Cell Phone Ring] Vun moment, please…. Doctor Frombilagonga speaking…yah…I vant to buy some cryptocurrency. Yah…okay, tank you. Sorry, I had some business to take care of. Now, as I said, I have dee charts of all tree of you right here. SFX: [Rustling Papers] Vee vill get to dee bottom of vhy dee baby here has green plants growing out of his ears, and vee vill see vhy you two are clinking like a piggy bank each time you move.
N: Doctor, you’ve got it mixed up! Zig Gneeecey, y’know, the sick, feverish baby here, has the overaccumulation of dimes in his body that he can’t expel through his shrunken nasal passages, and Flea and I are the ones with the green vines sprouting out of our ears!
NM: Never correct the doctor!
N: But—but—he’s mixed it all up!
PA SYSTEM: Nurse Maudlyn to ER! STAT! Nurse Maudlyn to ER! STAT!
NM: Don’t look so happy. I will be back. [SFX: Squeaking Sneakers] [Cartoon Character Annoyed Crying] [Cartoon Baby]
DF: Oh, yah, I do see here dat for dee baby, I deed rule out surgery—too risky—and I also had ruled out dat infusion of ten percent sinolfactorial solution to enlarge hees sinuses and nasal passages. And dat vee decided vee vill inject him vit’ dis new drug, Dimeosacion. Eet should shrink, safely neutralize, and eventually dissolve dee dimes in hees system and inhibit further production of any physical coins. And I also see dat I advised, vunce dee patient ees recovered, dat vee should really discuss dee elimination of regular currency—
G: Eliminzation of mon-ney? SFX: [Cartoon Baby] [Clinking Coins]
DF: Vee vill discuss dat later, vhen you are vell. Vhen Nurse Maudlyn returns, she vill administer your first of ten injections of Dimeosacion. And you two, she vill pull a portion of dose vines out of your ears so dey can be sent to dee lab. Dee vines, not your ears. Get some rest now. SFX: [Door Slam]
G: Told ya—it’s a stinkin’ lousy hospoopital! SFX: [Insect Flies] Look, there’s even a couple of them dangerousical planes flyin’ around up there on the ceilin’!
F: Yeah, those bugs that disguise themselves as commuter jets an’ prop planes, as a natural defense—
N: And their bites are much worse than the mosquitoes back on my Planet Earth.
SFX: [Cartoon Character Annoyed Crying] [Cartoon Baby] [Magic Spell] [Rockabye Piano] [Snoring] [Hospital Room Ambience]

F: Impossible, Zig!
G: It’s not impossibooble—I hear ’em! They’re after us! They know we’re here!
N: Diroctor Gneeecey, we dematerialized both those evil clowns while you were still missing—y’know, in that dimension of Whatever-You-Want-Land! We got back here to Perswayssick County before you did.
F: An’ we were worried sick about ya. Now Zig, it’ll help if ya try an’ concentrate on other stuff. For instance, try lookin’ around the room here….
