Date: Post Vietnam Era
The mental ward of a V.A. hosptial (usually the top floor) were vets go to get medication adjustments, escape from the world, drink coffee and smoke incessantly.
The catch phrase Flight Deck is so popular that it's even begun to spread into civilian nut huts.
John: He's on the flight deck.
Joe: I've wondered where he's been.
2: (Medication time is announced on the ward)
Patient#1: Medication time! Oh boy, CAT one ready to launch!!!
Patient#2: I hope it's not another FOD (Fuckin Over Dose).
Patient#3: Look at John, he's so over medicated that he's drooling and doesn't know where he is, fucking VA!
Patient#4: Yea, he's gear adrift all right.
Patient#5: says to med. nurse, "I'm refusing meds, fuck you!"
(Sound of P/A static on speakers) Med Nurse: Patient 5 has waved off, repeat, Patient 5 has waved off.
