    Does this flu strain really exist.

    Good question. Any doctors around here?

    I found a couple of odd things in that episode. First Cliff and Clair are sick but they don't take (or talk about taking) medicine for it. And when they were thirsty, why did Theo bring them water from the bathroom!?!?

    Hi, RC2K5 Why do you think it was strange that Theo brought them water from the bathroom.

    I only drink water that has been on the fridge. Room temperature water just doesn't taste the same and hot water can induce vomiting.

    The Andalusian is a region in Spain, though I doubt a strain of flu would originate there. I'm no doctor, but most strains originate in Asia, including the bird flu that's being talked about so much in the news. For this particular episode, this was probably made up just out of some sort of convenience.

    What was the whole point of naming the flu?  Why couldn't they just say, we have the flu?  Why did they have to come up with some ridiculous flu that no one's ever heard of?  Was that supposed to make it more comical, because it didn't.
