Scene: Mother talking to a doctor about her son, obviously worried... she's just described the symptoms...

Doctor: Oh dear...
Mother: Is that bad?

Doctor: I'm afraid your son has "the knack".
Mother: "The knack"?
Doctor: The Knack. It's a rare condition characterized
by an extreme intuition about all things

Mother: Can he lead a normal life?
Doctor: No. He'll be an engineer.
Mother: Oh, no! [starts crying]
Doctor: There, there. Don't blame yourself.
