    Must be the 40s – or earlier – if doctors were still making house calls!

    Jeff’s moustache grew back.
    My old dentist used to charge $5 to pull ’em and $4 to fill ’em. Or was it the other way around?

    Benny – Rodchester, where’s the eggs? Rodchester- They are in the refrigerator, Mr. Benny. Benny- Rodchester, these eggs are hot. Rodchester- You’ve got your hand on the light bulb, Mr. Benny. I know, I spelled Rodchester wrong…..

    Actually, it could be later than that. I was born in the mid 50’s, and I remember house calls.

    Doctor looks like Mutt. Honeymooners joke. Ed told Ralph about a great doctor. The doctor had told Ed’s friend the man had only 6 months to live. When the man said he couldn’t pay for the care given by the doctor, the doc gave him an additional 6 months to live.

    From the most famous doctor skit of all time. Dr. Kronkheit and His Only Living Patient, from Smith and Dale. After the exam the doctor hands the patient a bill for $25. The
    patient says, “What’s that for?” The doc answers, “My advice.” The patient hands him $2 and says, “Take this, that’s my advice.” By the way the doctor’s name was an inside joke. Smith and Dale were both Jewish and Kronkheit is a Yiddish term meaning sickness.

    Sorry, Doc… Time to heave your heavy bones out of your warm comfy bed.

    I had a doctor make a house call just last December.
    (My daughter – an RN – married a doctor and they paid a visit from several states away)

    The Doctor’s pinpoint pupils make him look like he’s on heroin.

    @lamaco

    Re: Mid-50s – I also remember doctors still making house calls i the mid-50s – but we lived in a rural area and we did a LOT of things which were different from folks who lived in the big cities. Don’t know if I would be eager to see a doctor make a house call these days. could be kind of dangerous!~

    I know a neighborhood that is so exclusive even the Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t make house calls.
