Planned Parenthood and the Two Bobs

Remember that scene from Office Space with the two Bobs? (If not, you can watch it on YouTube here.)  I like to imagine it would be that same way with Planned Parenthood.*

I can see the two Bobs sitting across the table from a PP representative:



BOB: So what you do is you make referrals and you send the women down to real healthcare providers?

PP: That -- that's right.

BOB: Well, then I gotta ask, then why can't women just go directly to the healthcare providers, huh?

PP: Well, uh, uh, uh, because, uh, doctors are not good at dealing with women.

BOB: You physically take the mammograms from the women?

PP: Well, no, my, my preferred clinic does that, or, or the hospital.

BOB: Ah.
BOB: Then you must physically bring them to the clinic.

PP: Well...no. Yeah, I mean, sometimes.

Bob: Well, what would you say… you do here?

PP: Well, look, I already told you. I deal with the goddamn women so the healthcare professionals don't have to!! I have people skills!! I am good at dealing with women!!! Can't you understand that?!? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!!!!!!!
