‘The Carol Burnett Show’ Season 4, Episode 10 featured a funny skit about a doctor who makes a surprise home visit. Carol enters the living room looking horrible, and Vickie Lawrence asks if she’s okay. Carol says she’s fine, but Vicki says she will call a doctor. Carol refuses because she has something against doctors and dentists. Carol says she’s going to take a nap, and she goes into her room.
Harvey runs in the front door with a friend who happens to be a doctor. Harvey’s been so worried about Carol that he decides to fake that his doctor is his friend. Carol comes out, and she shakes the doctor’s hands. The doctor, played by Ross O’Connor, holds onto Carol’s wrist to check her pulse. She stares at him confused, and asks for her hand back so she can go to sleep.
Carol says, “Can I have my hand back? I like to have it when I sleep.” Then Harvey offers coffee, and they all convince Carol to stay. Carol enjoys her time with Harvey’s friend, and he tells her to watch a trick. He hits her knee to check her reflexes and catches her leg to examine it. Carol looks confused. They continue talking as he continues doing small things to further examine her, like shining lights in her eyes and ears.
Carol enters the kitchen to find Harvey, telling him she thinks his friend is weird, but Harvey defends him. Harvey walks out with Carol, and they sit down, but Carol tries to get on the opposite side of Harvey, away from the weird friend.
The doctor comes to the other side, leaving his head on Carol’s chest. Eventually, Carol yells at the friend and says she knows what he’s been up to. He thinks she knows he’s a doctor, but she thinks he’s trying to steal her. The friend says, “Well, look, as long as you know, why don’t you go into the next room, take off your clothes, and call me when you’re ready.”
Carol grabs Harvey, and he clears everything up and asks if she will be okay. The doctor says physically she’s fine, but mentally she is not. The doctor leaves and accidentally hits Carol in the head with the door. Harvey catches her, and Carol says, “I think I need a doctor.”
