Safe (dialogue transcript), 1995

"I really don’t see anything wrong with you, Carol. I mean, outside of a slight rash and some congestion. I’ll give you some ointment… and some decongestant, but… I don’t know what else to do. Are you… well, what?"

"I guess I’m just a little stressed out lately…and just tired from it.
"Well, that’s not uncommon. Are you doing drugs?"
"I don’t take drugs or drink. I don’t even… like coffee very much. I’m just a total ‘milkaholic,’ actually. I mean, before the fruit thing."
"Well, stop the fruit diet. You need protein. And while you’re at it… try staying off dairy. Dairy’s very hard on your digestion and hard on yourintestines. I’ll see you in a couple weeks. You’ll be fine."
