Dr. Long:Very well, let's go ahead and get started. Why don't you relax, sit down and tell me why you are here.
Bruce:Dr. Long, I just don't feel adequate anymore. I don't think I'm as important as in the past.
Dr. Long:When did this start Mr. Wayne?
Bruce:It started when I realized that in comparison to others in my field, I fell way short of the mark.
Dr. Long:And just what field are we talking about?
Dr. Long:Oh, are you a police officer Bruce? Is it ok if I call you Bruce?
Bruce:That's fine. No, I'm not a cop.
Dr. Long:An attorney? A judge? What?
Bruce:A super hero.
Dr. Long:(laughing) Bruce, if we are ever to make any progress then we must stay on task.
Bruce:Dr. Long, I'm telling the truth. I discovered a cave with bats. Perhaps you've heard of me? I'm...
Dr. Long:(interrupting) BRUCE!
Dr. Long:We only have a 50 minute hour so really, let's try to stay focused. When did it all start?
Bruce: My first feelings of inadequacy began two years ago when I had a hardened criminal cornered at the end of an alley.
He kept laughing at me and joking. I became enraged and attacked. Right when I nearly had him in my hands, he flew into
the air and disappeared. It seems he was wearing some sort of jet pack under his purple suit.
Dr. Long:(doubtful) Ok, then what happened?
Bruce:Nothing. That was it. I couldn't do anything about it.
Dr. Long:But Bruce I thought you were a super hero? Why didn't you just take flight and go after him? Why Bruce?
Bruce:Because I can't. I am Ba...
Dr. Long:(interrupting) BRUCE! You couldn't because you are not a super hero. Stand up Bruce and I will show you. Great.
Now fly over my head, land behind me and put me in a choke hold. Go.
Dr. Long:Exactly. Now, sit back down.
Dr. Long:Quiet! Can we try a little reality for a moment. What is your relationship like with your mother?
Bruce:Doc, that has nothing to do with this. My mother is dead.
Dr. Long:(Taking notes, to self) Infatuated with dead mother....
Bruce:I didn't say that!
Dr. Long:(Taking notes, to self) In a depressed state of denial.....
Bruce:(standing) I didn't say that either!
Dr. Long:(Taking notes, to self) Repeats self, could be schizophrenic....
Bruce:Hey stop it! I'm WARNING YOU!
Dr. Long:(looking up) What are you going to do Bruce? Melt me with your laser eyes?
Bruce:(discouraged) I can't.
Dr Long:Twist me into a pretzel with you awesome strength?
Bruce:(even more dejected) Can't.
Dr. Long:Cloud my mind with evil thoughts.
Bruce:(almost silent) Can't
Dr. Long:Sit down Bruce.
Dr. Long:Now, Bruce what else has occurred that has brought you to this point of such self doubt?
Bruce:Well, another incident that really sticks out in my mind is when I had a great opportunity to make a good impression
with a certain female feline .
Dr. Long:(Taking notes, to self) Confused sexual identity...
Bruce:(Starts to protest) I.... (But then just continues) Anyway, I was supposed to meet her downtown at midnight. I
show up in my mobile. And I must mention my mobile is awesome.
Dr. Long:You mean car? Right?
Bruce:What else? Anyway, I see her waiting for me and so like a gentleman I hop out to open her door. But, as I do my
utility belt gets hooked on the streering wheel and comes off my waist. It all happened so fast it's a blur. The next thing
I know the door shuts with my belt on the navigation chair and the anti-intruder, laser activated, shutdown program initiated.
Dr. Long:(Taking notes, to self) Key chain on front seat with doors locked. (To Bruce) What next?
Bruce:Well, without my belt I couldn't do anything. That's the point! A superhero and I couldn't get into the mobile!
Dr. Long:Let's not be too hard on yourself.
