Good on ya, doc.


#3

Can we just let Texas leave please? I have yet to find any reason they need to stay in the US.


#4

Yes. This is how you do this.

Fuck Texas for their bullshit law.


#5

I love this doctor.

#7

She wasn’t required to wear the red letter A? How progressive.


#8

Let me guess: Austin?


#9

One of the chilling thing is that the woman would be committing an offence if she closes her eyes or looks away from the ultrasound screen, conjuring up wonderfully horrific A Clockwork Orange images. Yay Land of the Free.


#10

As long as there is no way to prove you didn’t look you don’t have to look.
The paperwork however has to be in order.


#11

I wonder where he was born and raised before he moved to Texas. Bravo Doc!


#12

I’m giving this a like because 1) the issue and 2) ST:TNG, even though the Ferengi are creeps.

Edited to add: I “liked” everyone’s above mine. Sigh. Texas.


#13

What, you think saying “HU-MAN FE-MALES” is creepy?

Yeah, I kind of love that gif… And I have a soft spot fro quark, even though you’re right about Ferengi… but it’s Deep Space 9, not TNG, though it’s the TNG universe. /pedantry


#14

My apologies. After TNG, I kind of lost track of the three two spin-offs and Enterprise reboot (although as much as I love me some Scott Bakula). :wink:


#15

Could almost have been written by Garry Trudeau. Bravo


#16

Actually Armin Shimerman also played a Ferengi in the “Next Generation” episode which introduced that species, so I guess it could be either/both.

//double pedantry


#17

Yeah, no need to apologize… I’ve been rewatching all Star Trek series, so I’m all up on series as of now.

Also, BONUS WORF!!!

I knew that!


#18

So at least a single candle burns bright in Texas…


#19

Nah. The law commits the doctor to his recitation. The patient is certainly not in legal danger if she does not listen.


#20

Yay Land of the Free

It is now a capitol offense to use that phrase ironically.
