Doctor Doctor

From the unofficial Duke TIP Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Doctor Doctor is a fourth year skit that traditionally closes the talent portion of the talent show on the last night.

Traditionally, there are five roles: daughter, mother, doctor, mortician, and director. In addition, there can be any number of makeup girls, who hit the cast with pillows in between scenes.

TIPsters play actors who are shooting a scene in which a daughter complains of a pain. After determining the location of the pain, the mother calls the doctor. After they talk on the phone, the doctor comes and discovers the daughter is dead- dead as a doornail. The doctor then calls Mort's Mortuary. Each time, the director calls cut, and demands that the scene be done in a different way. (Harry Potter, Kung-Fu, with more Emotion, etc..) Make up is called for, and the make up girls, wearing pajamas, come on stage and hit the actors with pillows. The intent of Doctor Doctor is to be mildly offensive, while staying TiPpropriate.

"Doctor Doctor" has been a tradition at the East Term 1 talent show since at least 1992.

Below, all known cast lists are posted. Additionally, you'll find styles, and, when available, links to the scripts.

Script

2010

Term 1

In 2010, the fourth years were determined to bring humor to Doctor, Doctor, as they remembered being shocked and excited as second years. Rather than just appointing cast members, all fourth years were invited to a fourth-years only planning session, where roles were determined through a series of auditions and votes. Then they got down to writing the scripts.

The styles: Classic Style, Dirty Durham, ADF, Spanish Telenovela, Staff, Adult Film, Quadfest, TIP

Cast:

  • Daughter - Tara Schulz
  • Mother - Nettie Finn
  • Doctor - Hannah Weaver
  • Mortician - Spencer Davis
  • Director - Jordan R.
  • Makeup - nearly every fourth year girl, Evan Stone, Cam Williamson
The Controversy

As soon as the slideshow was over, the OSC got on the mike and asked participants in "the skit" to meet her in the Brown Common room immediately. They got yelled at and had to make apologies to the inhabitants of both Brown and Alspaugh. Apologies were not accepted.

Term 2

Themes: Traditional, Hipster, Nickelback, TIP

Cast:

2011

Term 1

Due to the numerous fourth years who wanted to participate, several casts were used. The styles were Classic, Mean Girls, SWAT Team!, Hipster, Adult Film, and TIP.

Cast:

  • Maddi Hill as director
  • Michael Liu as Mortician (except in TIP style, in which Maddi stepped in)
  • Makeup: Any fourth year who felt like it

Classic:

  • Daughter - Trish and Alex Sullivan
  • Mother - Julianna Laseter
  • Doctor - Haley Sheehan

Mean Girls:

  • Daughter(Regina) - Kristen Bagley
  • Mother(Karen) - Eliza Scruton
  • Doctor(Regina's mom) - Ava Chen

SWAT Team!:

  • Son - Russell Gray
  • Father - Harrison Bidwell
  • Doctor - Jackson Myers
  • Other roles played by miscellaneous members of the Bromance

Hipster

  • Daughter - Kate Westman
  • Mother - Alison Lui
  • Doctor - Amar Reddy

Adult Film

  • Daughter - Kristen Bagely
  • Mother - Eliza Scruton
  • Doctor - Ava Chen
  • A note on Adult Film style: Maddi introduced Adult Film style in precisely the same way Jordan had the year before. Many RC's, 3rd years, and unknowing 4th years squirmed in their seats, looks of horror crossing their faces, as they remembered the previous year's controversially explicit Adult Film style. However, what happened was precisely the opposite. The mother and daughter were both clad in comically conservative outfits, and both their style of speech and the things they said contrasted sharply with the previous year's explicit themes.

TIP

  • Daughter - Alex Sullivan
  • Mother - Julianna Laseter
  • Doctor - Haley Sheehan

2012

Term 1

An unprecedented amount of enthusiasm was garnered for the 2012 Term 1 Doctor Doctor. Thus, there was 11 styles, with a cast of 35 members. Including pillow girls, the total number of participants topped out at around 55 people, making for a very interesting back stage scramble at Paige Auditorium (where Talent Show was held that year, due to Baldwin being under construction). Danielle Williamson, Pink Stilletos holder, coordinated the event.

Duke West

2007

Term 1

At West Term 1 2007, the styles were Traditional, Prep, Stoner, Ebonics, and 1337 (Leet). There was also an ongoing style, Tony Time, which played off of RC Tony Manela's expectations concerning earliness. In between each style, Tony's RAG would run onstage, calling for Tony, and would then be shooed off by the Director.

2009

Term 1

Styles were: Original, Billy Mays, Swine Flu (led to a racist joke), Jock, and Chinese Delivery (one long racist joke)

Term 2

The styles were: Original, Spanish soap opera, Harry Potter, "Illness", Monty Python, and TIP-propriate. The staff would not allow a swine flu style because of the touchiness of the subject with the main office after closing East. The reason for not allowing Swine Flu may also come from that fact that during Term 1 at West it was done and due to the unfourtunate forgetfulness of a certain Tipster, a line read "Dead as a Mexican dead?" instead of "Dead as a Mexican Pig dead?" The illness style involved a student telling her TA that she has a pain, and the TA rattling off the list of symptoms that the TAs were required to ask about every day, to prevent swine flu. After this style, the entire cast was rushed off the stage by the make-up "hazmat" crew so as not to "infect the audience", and a new cast was brought in.

The cast was:

  • Daughter- Alora Clark, Jess DeAngelo;
  • Mother- Audrey Kidwell, Xan Belzley;
  • Doctor- Nora Munger, Joyce Wang;
  • Director- Walker Argendelli, Peter Yom;
  • Mort- Trevor Walker;
  • Makeup Crew/Hazmat- Kyle Dzwonkowski, David Adler, Zulu Force

One of the final punch lines during the TIP-propriate variation, "Dead as a rave without a strobe light dead?", aroused the loudest response from the audience, especially from the Zulu Force.

Let it also be known that the staff responded to the tipropriate and illness versions by making their own doctor doctor skit after the end of the student version. The staff version ridiculed the students for their complaints in the doctor doctor skits, even though that is one primary reason for doctor doctor, and insulted the students for making a petition. This less enjoyed skit had Overlord Lisa in it.

2010

Term 1

The fourth year skits had to be thrown together last minute this term. After the last dance, the fourth years met in O commons to decide the themes and the actors. Because so many people wanted to participate, it was decided that the director would fire the cast after each theme. The themes were Original, World Cup, Hipster, and TIP.

The cast was as follows:

  • Director (same for all four skits): Ty

Original:

  • Daughter/Son - Matt
  • Mother
  • Father
  • Doctor
  • Mortician

World Cup:

  • Daughter/Son - Kasia

  • Father - Taylor
  • Doctor - Brandon
  • Mortician - Robbie

Term 2

Script

During the second weekend, the fourth years of term 2 were informed of the occurrence of Term 1 fourth year's last minute planning and were advised against entering the same scenario. Therefore, the fourth years started meeting as early as Tuesday of the last week in preparation for the fourth year skits. They were able to plan for four skits, including Doctor Doctor, Doctor's Office, Is it Time yet?, and the question/answer monster. The themes were Original, Ninja, Not TIPpropriate, Rad Bromance, The BP Oil Spill, Spanish Soap Opera, and Rave (which made references to Zulu Force and Overlord Lisa). The skit was almost shut down due to staff sensitivity issues during Rave and NTP.
