. . . So Are the Days of Our Therapy Lives.
Previously on Days:
Ernie pushed for the hiring of his Occupational Therapy mentor Bert. Once taken on, Ernie and Bert were inseparable, until (dah dah dah) Bert insulted Ernie's wife and his friend. Weeks of silence and seething anger ensued. Bert, at his wit's end, resorted to a candle lit dinner and a romantic movie. Ernie was swayed back into his arms.
Bert comes in to find that Ernie has not made the lemonade he prefers, but has instead made a green tea blend. He furrows his brow, but remains silent. Refusing to admit something is amiss.
Ernie, obviously put off by something, stomps heavily around the therapy office until his wife can take no more:
Wife: "Alright, Ernie, enough. What's the deal, pickle?"
Ernie: "What are you talking about?"
Wife: "You're stomping around like an elephant and biting everyone's head off. What bee is buzzing around your bonnet?"
Bert looks up from his desk, stares in their direction, then realizes he shouldn't look interested. He shuffles papers on his desk and makes notes in margins, trying vainly to look disinterested and otherwise occupied. However, his ears remain perked up like dogs'.
Ernie: "SOMEONE said they would call last night with the information on LP. But I guess SOMEONE had more important things to do than his or her actual job."
The wife turns her head to look at Bert. Always the peacekeeper she attempts to repair the rift.
Wife: "Bert, did you forget to give Ernie the billing information for LP last night?"
Bert, still trying to seem like he's not been eavesdropping, replies: "Hunh? Did you ask me something?"
Corey gets a disgusted look on his face and practically screams: "Don't play stupid, Bert! You heard her! If this job means so little to you that you can't carry out the simplest of tasks, maybe you should work elsewhere."
*Did anyone else mishear that last sentence as "If this relationship means so little to you, maybe I should forget the whole affair, return to my female wife and banish you from this office FOREVER." Or is that just me?*
