Here’s a An Examination by Dr. Good script excerpt:
NOTE: A puppet makes a great Dr. Good character.
(child enters and takes a seat; doctor starts examination)
Dr. Good: (loudly to patient) Hey!
Child: (startled & jumps in chair) What?
Dr. Good: (loud whisper to child) Can you hear me?
Child: (loud whisper back) Yes I can.
Dr. Good: (to camera) It is good!
Narrator: These ears will hear the big sounds and the gentle sounds that are a part of God’s world. (pause) The next part of Dr. Good’s examination is the nose and mouth.
(child opens mouth & Dr. Good peeks into mouth & then looks up nose)
Child: (sneezes while Dr. Good is looking up nose) Achoo! Achoo!
(Dr. Good leaves & returns with a tissue for child; Dr. Good wipes nose & hands child the tissue)
Child: Thank you, Dr. Good.
Dr. Good: (to child) You are welcome. (to camera) Nose and mouth. It is good!
Narrator: Great to hear that the mouth and nose are good because they will be used to talk and smile and smell and sneeze in the coming week. And about that sneeze, Dr. Good. You showed us a good heart when your patient sneezed and you stopped what you were doing to help out with a tissue.
Dr. Good: It is good?
Narrator: It is good! A good heart that seeks to serve is always good!
