Robby apparently was also working on some type of illness because he had ketones in his urine that day. As usual, he took his stuffed Elmo along for the visit. His physician asked him if Elmo also had ketones. Robby looked at her very seriously and said, "Elmo can't have ketones". She asked, "Why? Isn't Elmo a diabetic like you?" Robby looked at her as if she was crazy and replied, "Elmo can't have ketones, because Elmo doesn't have a pee-pee!"
