Picture Segment Description
2630 streetstory 1
SCENE 1
OSCAR THE GROUCH is distraught, as his niece IRVINE won't say "bleah". Bob doesn't think anything is wrong with her: she is smiling & laughing, & she gives him a kiss. He suggests that she just doesn't feel like being GROUCHY--maybe she woke up on the right side of the bed. Oscar, however, recognizes the symptoms of the Grouch Flu. He calls Dr. Kvetch, who says she should rest, drink fluids, & stay away from nice people. Oscar tells Bob to get lost.
