Act 2: scene1
Beverlyhillslasikdoc :welcome Charlie and Chuck. Good to see you.
I am cognizant of both your view points. It’s like this. Charlie you are saying the glass is half full and chuck you insist it is half empty.now both of you are right. You will have to envision the truth from different perspective. You both agree there is water in the glass, correct?
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : (stroking his greying beard) ah, so we all agree.Now if you guys stop living in the seventies and start seeing things as they are in the 21st century, we will be able to be happy.
Charlie: you the man, doc!
Beverlyhillslasikdoc:for starters, both of you have to loose these visual crutches from the previous century- glasses. You need clear sparkling vision, with no glasses either for distance or near.
Chuk:is this even possible? Even in Jetsons they wear glasses.
Beverlyhillslasikdoc: that proves Ruth is better than fiction, or medicin is advancing faster than what Hollywood can concot.
Charlie: cool man.
Beverlyhillslasikdoc: have you seen Butch Patrick from the munsters wear glasses? Surely you remember him as the kid with funny mark on his forehead. He got his mark before Harry potter was even conceived.
Chuck and Charlie: no (in unison)- but I am afraid!
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : (scratching his bald head) fear is the key!-as Alister Maclean Nicely put it. Fear stems from ignorance.no. Ignorance is not bliss. And fear stems from not having the power to replace things we currently enjoy. Charlie, you are fearful that after 2 and 1/2 men you may not be able to deliver another hit! You have poured your entire life story into this one sitcom. Where are you going to get another life story from?
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : chuck, you are scared that, that golden spooned Charlie may suddenly jump back to movies, or disappear leaving you stranded with no show. So in your mind you are already living that truth and moved to m&m.
Chuck: that’s insightful
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : and in your minds each is thinking I can do better than the other. Chuck, u feel you could have enacted charlie’s role and sheen you believe you can write these shows.
Beverlyhillslasikdoc : so we will work out a plan where we address your fears about life, vision correction and tv shows.
See you tomorrow.
This hasn’t happened, yet!
