A Retired Teacher Says He'll Starve Until Mayor Charlie Hales Reforms the Police Bureau
Matt Davis hangs up the phone after a tense conversation with a dental assistant.
MATT DAVIS: In Britain, I go to the dentist once a year and they don’t fuckin’ touch me. Here it’s, ‘Oh, you need to have a tooth filled.’ No I don’t! They try to fuckin’ rape you for money!
SARAH MIRK: You’re mad because you have a cavity?
MD: Look, I don’t have a cavity. And I’ll tell you one thing, dental standards are not objective. They’re cultural.
SM: Is this the part where the guy with stereotypically bad English teeth gets mad at American dentists for trying to fix them?
MD: I have stereotypically GREAT English teeth and my dentist is a Republican with a picture of Nixon on his wall!
PATRICK: Why would you let anyone with a picture of Nixon on their wall get into your mouth?
MD: I need to fuckin' change dentists, mate.
