He concludes the WORM has no fever or internal injury, but further examination shows SLIMEY as sprained the middle of his body. Dr. Mudd bandages him up & prescribes SLIMEY not do any movement until he’s healed, as well as ordering him not to jump from any more planes. As OSCAR tells SLIMEY he’s "grounded," Maria tells Dr. Mudd to send OSCAR the bill.
