Overheard in the Ravenswood Hospital lobby:

Three well-dressed men who look a lot like doctors are discussing a case. Man number one says, "He's not going to make it. And he's a nice guy too." Man number two says, "Oh, I don't know. Maybe he'll come around." Man number one says, "Nope. I'll bet on it." Man number two says, "How much?" Man number three now speaks up. "I'll hold the stakes."
