In the skit, Carol Burnett's character is in a doctor's waiting room. She strikes up a conversation with the man sitting next to her, played by Harvey Korman.
Harvey’s character shares what medicine the doctor prescribed him for his headaches. And while Carol calls out how she is not a doctor, she goes on to talk about all the serious side effects she’s read about associated with the prescribed medicine.
Another patient in the waiting room, Tim Conway, comes over to hear about these side effects. And this is when the comedy really starts!
