Dr. Richards, 20s
(Lights up on a dentist’s office. Dr. Richards finishes looking in Joe’s mouth.)
JOEWhat’s the verdict, Dr. Richards?
DR. RICHARDSWell, Joe. Tooth Number Two is definitely fractured. Half of the tooth is dead. We have three options. We do a root canal and put a crown on it, which will be about fifteen hundred dollars and no guarantee that it will work.
DR. RICHARDSOption two is we do an extraction for about two hundred dollars.
JOEIs option three the affordable one?
DR. RICHARDSIt is.
JOEI’ll take that one.
(Dr. Richards pulls a hammer out of her lab coat.)
DR. RICHARDSMeet me in the alley. Bring ten bucks.
