MARVIN: Whizzer, kid, you're looking very good today.
You had to see yourself a few days back,
I had a heart attack!
Jesus'
But today you seem to be
On the way to recovery!
Oh, Whizzer, I want to applaud!
It's days like this I almost believe in God,
Days like this I almost believe
In God.

WHIZZER: (speaking) Hello!

CORDELIA: Hello!

WHIZZER: (laughs) Hey.

CORDELIA: (singing)
Rugelach! Gefilte fish!
It's so good, you'd think it's Italian!
Also a soup made from chicken
That, though un-exotic, is antibiotic!
Why, I'm up to my ass
In a kosher morass!
For aches and croup,
Try my chicken soup!

MARVIN: Whizzer, kid, you're looking very good today.
You had to see yourself a few days back,
I had a heart attack!
Jesus'

CORDELIA: (overlapping)
So let's begin. It's medicine!
It could be we're both going to cure you,
Me with my soup,
She with her medication.
Such elation!

MARVIN & CORDELIA: But today you seem to be
On the way to recovery!
Oh, Whizzer, I want to applaud!
It's days like this we almost believe in God,
Days like this we almost believe
In

CORDELIA: Canadelach! Gefilte fish!

MARVIN: (overlapping) God!

TRINA: He had trouble parking, just like on our second date.

MENDEL: I hyperventilate.
But since I'm parking in the city, I've improved,
Or else the hydrants moved! (Trina laughs)
Yeah, go ahead, be good and pissed.
'How can I help'', says the wiry psychiatrist!

TRINA: He'll make you well!

MENDEL: I'll make you well!

WHIZZER: (speaking) Haha, right.

CHARLOTTE & JASON: (singing) Whizzer, hello!

JASON: Gee, you look awful. I think you need to play some chess.

WHIZZER: Jason, sit down and begin.

JASON: I'll let you win, Whizzer. I'll let you win. I'll let you win.

MARVIN & CHARLOTTE: Whizzer, kid, you're looking very good today.
You had to see yourself a few days back,
I had a heart attack! Jesus'

CORDELIA: (overlapping) Rugelach! Gefilte fish!
It's so good, you'd think it's Italian!
Also a soup made from chicken
That, though un-exotic, is antibiotic!

JASON: (overlapping) Whizzer, hello! Gee, you look awful.
I think you need to play some chess.

MENDEL: (overlapping) I'll make you well! I'll make you well! I'll make you well! I'll make you well!

TRINA: (overlapping) He'll make you well! He'll make you well! He'll make you well!

EVERYONE except WHIZZER:
But today you seem to be
On the way to recovery!
Oh, Whizzer, I want to applaud!
It's days like this we almost believe in God,
Days like this we almost believe in God,
Days like this we almost believe in God,
Days like this we almost believe
In

CORDELIA: Gefilte fish!

MENDEL: I'll make you well!

MARVIN: God!

TRINA: (overlapping) You're looking very good today!

CORDELIA: Canadelach!

EVERYONE except WHIZZER: God!
