Harry knew the feeling only too well. "Won't you introduce us, Doctor?"
"Certainly, Harry. This is Leela," the Doctor obligingly replied, gently lifting one of Benton's eyelids to peer appraisingly into the unconscious eye beneath. "Leela, this is another old friend of mine, Harry Sullivan. Harry, tell me about your patients. How are they?"
