Have you ever watched this American sitcom? It was on from 1998 to 2004 (6 seasons, 129 episodes).
I´d lke to share one of my favourite episodes with you.
But first read the Storyline in case you´ve never heard of it:
Misanthropic Dr. John Becker runs a clinic in New York City. He is assisted by super-capable Margaret Wyborn and less-than-capable Linda, who's only kept on because no one else can stand the doctor. Becker's best (some would say only) friend is the blind Jake Malinak, who runs a newsstand in the diner across the street. The diner is run by Reggie Kostas, an ex model who inherited it from his late father. The diner is also frequented by Robert Benito, who is universally known as Bob and is the super ( caretaker in British English) at Becker's apartment (much to the doctor's regret).
This is "The rumour", second season, episode 14 and this is its plot:
A rumor spreads through the office and diner that John is dying when he suddenly begins eating healthy food and tries to control his temper.
