In a Psychiatry
Psychiatrist (writing on a note pad) It's clear to me that although you are surrounded by people, you feel isolated.
Pan out, revealing X-017 lying on a crushed couch.
Psychiatrist Let's put you in a situation where real human contact is inevitable, even mandatory! Try volunteering. Say, at a homeless or, better yet, a retirement home.
Cut to Summer Oaks Assisted Living. A member of staff stands in front of a notice board speaking to volunteers.
Staff Member ...and that's pretty much it. Just some conversation and comfort goes a long way.
Close-up of a list on the notice board.
Staff Member Okay, I think we're ready! You've each been assigned a resident.
Just check the list and if you have any questions or concerns, I'm right here.
The staff member walks away as the volunteers look at the notice board.

X-017 looks at the notice board.

The volunteers start helping the elderly as X-017 stands on his own.

An elderly man in a wheelchair looks up at X-017.

Old Man Just a washing machine. Humphf.
Back to the Psychiatry. X-017 is lying down on the crushed couch again.
Psychiatrist Well, he's completely off-base.
You're clearly more of a refrigerator.
