“Mister Wilson? I’m Doctor Peterson. The nurse tells me you believe you may have contracted a parasite of some kind?”

“Of some kind? What are you, blind? Look at me!”

“There’s no call for rudeness sir, nor for ventriloquism. I can only help you if you can tell me what’s wrong… though I must say I see no outward signs of any parasite. Is it under the johnny?”

“Under the… look Doc, that’s not my name but I guess you could say it’s under me. It won’t let me do anything, go anywhere I want to go. I’m only here because it wouldn’t go where I told it to. And I can hear it trying to think—a task for which it is tremendously ill-equipped I might add.”

“I… I don’t follow you, Mister Wilson. Why don’t you just lay down and let me take a look at you, hmm?”

“Listen, Doc, I’m trying to tell you, it won’t obey my commands. I’ve been trying to get this lummox to turn around and walk me back to my ship for days but it won’t cooperate. When I realized it had brought me to this primitive medical facility I was terrified—I’ve seen your species’ movies—but now I understand you may be my only hope of getting free of this body and going home.”
