“The old man is really selling it with the international gesture for ‘cuckoo’ in panel five. ‘As you can see, my wits are no more diminished than my motor skills. Sorry you weren’t cut out for the corporate board room, my boy, but speaking of motor skills I hear there are some job openings down at the bus depot…’ [Begins to wink insistently while combining hand-to-mouth motion with tongue-in-cheek action in a perfectly coordinated fellatio pantomime.]” –Dragnet

“Not that anyone except me cares, but while Dr Bellman may not be an established figure from the comics, Metro-General is; it was the setting of the seventies Night Nurse comic, and did in fact appear in the Netflix Daredevil series as the workplace of Claire Temple.
