  • . HEALTH CARE IS A BUSINESS

    7.0
    This episode shows that nothing much has changed in the American psyche since the 50's when it comes to thinking of health care solely in terms of monetary gain. Certainly, that's what Thalia is trying to teach Dobie. And he's more than willing to comply--but for his incompetence. We get to meet Dobie's foil Zelda in this episode for the first time. Her initial assessment that Dobie's hair will have fallen out by the time he's 30 proved only too true, what with the problems the constant dyeing of Hickman's hair caused him.moreless
