An excerpt …

(It’s the local counseling service.)

 Counseling Service, Pat Eden speaking. Who? I think you have the wrong number. This is a marriage counseling service. You want Orkin. Yes, they get rid of pests. Oh, your husband? I’ll put you on with my secretary for an appointment. No. No, you can’t spray for that kind of thing. Goodbye. (Eden hangs up) She wanted him exterminated.

(Pat meets with the couple.)

Let’s start with you, Adam. Why are you having trouble relating to Eve? The snake? What snake? The one in the garden. Oh. Have you tried a dog? Two of them? Male and female. But what does a snake have to do with … the apple? I’m sorry, folks. You’ve got me confused here. You say the snake made her eat an apple?  You know Adam, sometimes when the sun gets hot, you’re tired, the plumbing needs fixing and the kids are driving you crazy … well, it’s easy to imagine things.

(The story unfolds …)

I canceled my golf outing. This case is fascinating. Okay, since you had no childhood and neither of you ever had a mother, let’s talk about your fathers, shall we? Adam, you first. What was your father like? I know it’s hard to describe your own father. Let’s start with what he looked like. Just like Eve’s father? Why am I not surprised. Okay, time out. (searching the room) … there’s a hidden camera in here somewhere, right? We’re on one of those cable TV shows … it’s a gag, right?
