The Magic Doctor's Chair

Pay close attention here.

Need: 5 scouts (1 as doctor, 4 patients). Two chairs.

Scene begins with doctor sitting on one of the chairs.

First patient enters twitching their left arm.

DOCTOR: "And what's wrong with you sir?"

Patient 1: "As you can see doctor I have this terrible twitch"

DOCTOR: "Just sit on my magic chair and you'll get better"

The patient sits on the chair and stops twitching, but the doctor's left arm starts twitching.

Patient 1: "Oh thank you doctor. you cured me"

The patient leaves, the doctor still twitching calls for the next patient.

DOCTOR: " Next "...... "And what's wrong with you sir?"

This patient has the hiccups. The process of sitting in the chair is repeated. The doctor now has a twitch and the hiccups.

The third patient is called in, both his legs keep flicking in the air. The process is again repeated so that the doctor now has a twitching arm the hiccups and both legs flicking in the air.

The doctor now calls patient four. This patient looks quite normal, enters and sits in the magic chair.

DOCTOR: "And what may I ask is wrong with you sir?"

Patient 4: "I've got a terrible case of the runs doctor"

The doctor runs off the stage holding his stomach.
