Eve: I'm worried, but my husband insists that Seth's just a slow starter. Could that be all this is? Doctor: No. It's fairly obvious that he's somewhere on the autism spectrum. Eve: ...What? Doctor: Your son presents with significant features of autism. Eve: Autism?! What features? Oh my God!! Doctor: His speech is significantly impaired. He doesn't point or make eye contact. He has limited social skills... Eve: You must have forgotten to say the part where Seth is fine and easily fixed and I'm a worrywart, and I really need to hear that part now. Now, please. Now! Now!!!
