Doctor Office Skit
You will need 6 people, pregnant woman costume and a nurse costume, or if you have a small group, you can use the variation below this, submitted by Kristi, where only 3 people are involved.
The Young Life version goes like this: The room is set up like a doctor’s office with a nurse-receptionist at the desk. The first person comes in and says that they have an appointment to see the doctor and sits down. The second person comes in sneezing like crazy, says that they have an appointment and then sits down. Gradually the first person starts to sneeze and the second person sneezes less and less, until only the first person is sneezing. The second person notices that he/she isn’t sneezing anymore and then walks out. Another person comes in coughing uncontrollably, says that they have an appointment, and then sits down. Gradually the first person starts to cough (while still sneezing) and the third person coughs less and less, until only the first person is coughing (and sneezing). The third person notices that he/she isn’t coughing anymore and then walks out. The same thing happens with someone who is itching all over, until finally a pregnant woman walks in. The first person screams and runs out of the room.
Variation with script by Kristi:
A nurse-receptionist sits behind a desk; two chairs are off to the side.
A man comes in and walks up to the nurse.
Man: I don’t know why I’m here. I’m in perfect physical condition [exaggerates and flexes muscles].
Nurse: Alright, I'll pencil you in. Have a seat over there [motions to the chairs and man sits down].
Sneezing lady walks up to nurse.
Sneezing lady: [Through sneezes, attempts to say, “I have a cold.” Nurse interprets and waves her off.]
Nurse: Yes, yes, I'll pencil you in. Have a seat over there [motioning to the chairs].
Sneezing lady sits down and starts conversation with the man.
Man: Why are you here? I don’t know why I’m here. I’m in perfect physical condition [flexes muscles and exaggerates].
Sneezing lady: I have a cold [keeps sneezing].
Man nods and sneezes himself, looks confused, and then sneezes again and again. The lady stops, gets up, and approaches the nurse.
Lady: I think I’m all better; go ahead and cancel my appointment [walks off stage].
The lady comes back in, this time hiccupping. Run through the whole thing again, but this time the man, still sneezing, “catches” the hiccups, too!.
The lady leaves again, only to return with the 'twitches'. The man “catches” these, so he has the sneezes, hiccups, and the twitches.
Again, the lady gets better and leaves, and then comes back puking. The man is now sneezing, hiccupping, twitching, and puking all at the same time!
When the lady leaves, she comes back in with a pillow under her shirt, “pregnant”. The man then jumps up and runs out of the room screaming!
