Emeraldstar09 : This is such a genius sketch, lol

Stefan Travis : Plot twist: There are no real psychiatrists in the world.

ANKIT YADAV : Intelligent comedy is so rare these days

Irina Va : So I think it would be useful if we started by your telling me something about your state of mind at the moment. How would you describe it? Would you say you were happy or depressed? Confident or unsure of yourself? What words would you use to describe your mood, would you say? Take your time. Fascinating. Absolutely fascinating. Your problem seems to centre around the delusion that you are a psychiatrist and that everyone you speak to is a patient of some sort. This is a rare but not unheard of syndrome. I think perhaps it would be helpful now if we talked a little bit about your mother. What are your feelings towards your mother? Extraordinary, really. Very intriguing. Now why mother? Was your mother affectionate towards you when you were small? Affection? Affection, that's interesting. I wonder why you chose that word particularly. I think it will be helpful if you told me at this point, if you can remember, whether or not you were breastfed as an infant. Already, you see, we're focusing in on breasts. Good, good. Now, how do you feel about breasts now? Do they Do they frighten you? Because, again, this is quite common. Breasts and fear. Ah, now, that is very interesting, breasts and fear. Fascinating association. Where do you think your father fits into that association? Right, right. Absolutely classic. Father, father All right, so let's imagine a line, shall we? We have fear at one end, breasts at the other. Now, where would you place your father on that line? Lines. Lines. Now that is That is interesting. Line I may ask you to draw those lines in a minute in something we call a Bender-Gestalt test, which can be very revealing. But lines, let's explore those for a moment. They're very penetrative, aren't they? Very, very thrusting, very male, very masculine. - They urge onwards, don't they? Right, right. So now at last the layers are beginning to unpeel. This is very important. So we have We have breasts. We have fear. We have male thrusting, penetrative, urging, some sort of psychiatric jargon you've picked up from the Reader's Digest. How often would you say you masturbated? Now, I'm gonna be really quite firm now, all right? - I'm the doctor. You are the patient. Yes, that's right. Now, I'm sorry, I want to hear you say it. I want to hear you say, "I am the patient. " - What was that? "I am the patient." Good, good. That's a breakthrough. Now that you can say that, now that you can admit it, we can proceed. Excellent. You are the patient. I am, you are. Perhaps we're all patients. No, I am not a patient. Now, now, please remain calm, Mr Windrush. Dr Windrush. Now, you realise that I only have to lift this phone, you will be restrained. Yes, hello? - Yes, it's all right, Rebecca, I'm in a session - Don't worry, thank you, Rebecca. - He's just a patient. Don't worry about it. - There's nothing to worry about. Now, look, I can't help you unless you stop playing this ridiculous game. Extraordinary. I don't think I've ever come across a more deeply embedded illusion. It is not an illusion. Your last doctor tried you on a course of Lentizol, I believe. Did you find that helped at all? All right, let's go right back to the beginning, shall we? If you are, as you think, a doctor Well, I'm sorry, that's the full hour, Mr Windrush. Shall we say same time next week? Er, yes, I think I can fit you in same time next week.

Rahul Khamamkar : Who thinks up such crazy scenarios? It's brilliant.

? : Both are mentally ill, right...?

Timotej Bernat : "Bender Gestalt" genius

Deke DaSilva : I was 12 when I first saw this sketch and when Hugh said "masturbate", my brother told me NEVER to use that word, not even to ask my dad (who was a doctor himself) what it meant.

Nopperabou : The sketch falls apart a bit because Fry is a much more convincing Psychiatrist.

listerone : ...some sort of jargon you picked up in the Reader's Digest...

1 of 8 billion : psycho psychiatrist? Hannibal Lecter.

mvolestrangler : surely it's delusion not illusion?

Vivianne O : Plot twist: even the lady "psychiatrist" was one of them. You see their problem seems to revolve on the delusion that they're psychiatrists 😅

Ken Pudsey : Superb💯

sam : All i hear is Jeeves and Wooster

celtic barbarian : They are the masters along with john Cleese and simon pegg .

Bladerxdxi : WE have fear on one end and breasts in the other. Where would you place your father in that line?

dumbo7429 : Many a true word spaken in jest...... Shakespere


Lightspeed Learning : There's an Australia version of this The Eleven O'Clock (with Josh Lawson)

Jay Remi : British comedy is so good.

Arse Robinson : 3:38 LOL.

Edwin Frerichs : I saw this coming, still gave me a smile. I also thought it was two psychologists who got mixed up for a in house vist.

Lago Brian : Which one was the patient?

Shane Wright : Golden years - before Laurie discovered he was a proper actor and Fry discovered he was a boring, windy old wanker.

01 : Thomas Szasz was right.

FIDIRONU : Interesting, but tedious, and only mildly amusing. Bring back Benny Hill! Edit: Due to feedback from our beloved patrons, the first sentence should read: _"Interesting idea, but tedious execution, and only mildly amusing."_

Simon Finch : fry superb, laurie got by on his coat tails

Joe Francis : Hugely English. It's lazy in concept, both actors are phoning it in and the whole thing is padded out with long, "educated" words that obviously came from a Google search, but English people always get off on stuff like this when it's a couple of Oxbridge types feeding them the tripe. It's the modern equivalent of the peasant doffing his cap. The Pythons were an earlier version of the same thing. Not in the least funny, but accorded legendary status because of their snooty accents. Very English.

WolfgangLMclain : Stephen, I'm afraid you have described a ray, and I'm surprised at you.

Martin Mitchell : Being a bit slow, I was wondering which of Fry and Laurie would prove to be the real psychiatrist. But of course the only way to resolve it was that neither of them were. Perfect finish.

Martin Mitchell : Lovely. Classic Fry and Laurie.

Haochi Zhang : Nice video of three psychiatrists having a conversation!

celtic barbarian : Pretty dry boring people that need a life that dislike this comedy master piece.

414rl : love it

i Ded : extraordinary!

loodlebop : This is clever I love it

Martingoldfire : Pure genius.

Henry : Clever

INTRO Sting : This is so funny

fatma Shah : Hahaha

The Mijonju Show : Google deepmind AI simulation.

DTOM : Has my money on Laurie as the real one. Good twist! Makes the whole bit even funnier.

George A : Made me go crazy with laughter

greenstingray77 : house in the early stages lol

Klaatu barada nikto : Yep

Angel Kid : Biggest plot twist

Sharon Combs : Truth!

Duncie Punkie : What a delight.

Sajan Nair : Ha ha
