Doctor In The House (1946)

Grimsdyke did not immediately realize the full significance of this, and had begun his first year's study at St Swithin's before it dawned on him that he had an excellent opportunity to spend the rest of his life in London on a comfortable allowance without the tedium of doing any work. He therefore took great pains always to fail his examinations. He came to the hospital once or twice a week, paid his fees promptly, and behaved himself, which was sufficient for St Swithin's. He had a flat in Knightsbridge, an old two-seater car (known as The Ulcer, because it was always breaking down), a large number of friends, and plenty of spare time. `I sometimes think,' he would admit to his cronies, `I have discovered the secret of graceful living.'
About the time that I joined the medical school Grimsdyke's spacious days became limited. He had fallen in love with a girl and proposed to her, but she was a shrewd young woman and not only discovered the secret of his existence but refused to accept him unless he altered it.
`An embryo doctor, yes,' Grimsdyke would explain sadly, `but a chronic hanger-on in a medical school, no. I was obliged to go out and buy some books. The power of women, my dear old boy. It is for them that men climb mountains, fight wars, go to work, and such unpleasant things.'
She must have had the personality of a Barbary slavemaster, for he thenceforward applied himself to his studies as enthusiastically as anyone else in the hospital.
