On putting the 'ass' in 'assistant.'

The interesting thing about the end of the whole extended visit is that it's immediately followed by a two-month long arc in which Elly is pressed into service as a dental assistant while John finds someone who'll split half-days with Jean. The interesting thing about this is not that we're going to be dealing with her scaring the crap out of Phil by demonstrating that she's sort of forgotten how all the crazy tools John uses work. This is sort of a bonus that has her use Alan's avatar as a means of punishing all of Rod's patients who dared question her competence.

The interesting thing is also not that she seems to have been placed there for the specific reason of making a cutting remark to a woman she barely knows and regretting offending people who've forgotten the stupidity of a non-entity who doesn't know what she's talking about. What the interesting thing is that Lynn confesses that she stopped assisting Rod because he never once said 'Thank you' to her when she was helping him at his job. According to the Lynnsight, we're going to be told that Rod seemed to be some sort of ogre who took what she did for granted. Given who Lynn is, it could possibly be that most of the reason that we see John being an incompetent dentist is that Lynn's feelings were hurt because he kept things professional and she couldn't take it.
