Romeo and Juliet were both patients in a mental hospital.
One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool.
Romeo suddenly jumped into the deep end and sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Juliet promptly jumped in, swam to the bottom and pulled him out.
When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Julietís heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.
She went to tell Juliet the news:
Nurse: Juliet, I have good news and bad news.
The good news is youíre being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the
person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.
Juliet: What is the bad news?
Nurse: Romeo hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but heís dead.
Juliet: He didnít hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?...
