Receptionist: Hello. Dr. Spock’s office. How can I help you?
Kirk: Hi. I’d like to see the dentist.
Receptionist: Okay. Can you tell me what’s wrong?
Kirk: I broke a tooth. It really hurts.
Receptionist: You’d better get here soon. Can you make it tonight?
Kirk: No. I’m out of town.
Receptionist: How is tomorrow for you?
Kirk: That would be great. What time is available?
Receptionist: Is 7:30 okay for you?
Kirk: That’s a little late.
Receptionist: No. 7:30 in the morning.
Kirk: 7:30 am? You’re open that early?
Receptionist: Yes. That will be okay, won’t it?
Kirk: That’d be great.
Receptionist: Can I get your name?
Kirk: It’s Jim. Jim Kirk. K-I-R-K.
Receptionist: Okay Mr. Kirk. We’ll see you tomorrow.
Kirk: I’ll see you bright and early. Bye.
At the dentist
Dr. Spock: Hello, How are you feeling?
Kirk: Okay. It really hurts though.
Dr. Spock: Well, it’s broken almost in half.
Kirk: Can you save the tooth?
Dr. Spock: I’m not sure. I’ll have to look at the x-ray. Oh oh.
Kirk: Is it really that bad?
Dr. Spock: I’m sorry, but I’ll have to remove the tooth.
Kirk: Is there no way to save it?
Dr. Spock: No. You’d be in constant pain.
Kirk: Okay. How much will it cost?
Dr. Spock: About 200 dollars. Do you have insurance?
Kirk: No, I just changed jobs so I’m not covered yet.
Dr. Spock: Sorry. I’ll give you a shot to freeze you. It may hurt.
Kirk: Ow, ow, ow!!! That really hurts!
Dr. Spock: I haven’t given you the shot yet.
Kirk: You’re standing on my foot.
Dr. Spock: Oh, sorry.
Kirk: Me too.
