It’s the only medicine with a lot of S’s and a lot of C’s in the first word. …’ ‘They call back. ‘Did you get it?’ ‘No, I haven’t gone yet.’ They’re wheezing and sneezing and (have a) headache. ‘Here, hang up the phone and go.’ And they still don’t go. Why? ‘Because I don’t know how to pronounce it.’ So it becomes very, very funny and you get frustrated because you know it’s going to work.’” —
