You might think that that the new David Cronenburg lm A Dangerous Method was the rst time the birth of psychiatry has been dramatised, but we've dug into the archive to bring you a clip from the little-known 80s sitcom about four student psychoanalysts sharing a house in the early part of the twentieth century. It's The Jung Ones.

You can't leave that lying there.

It is not a lion, it represents the penis and Sabina's latent desire to be dominated by an aggressive male member.

4. SABINA: ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

You're such a bloody hippie Carl, it's only my new patent. The talking cure wasn't quite working so I had to hit her with a spade.

5. SIGMUND:!

The spade is another manifestation of your penis envy.

6. CARL:! ! ! ! ! ! !

Penis, penis, penis. Everything's penis with you Freud. I suspect that this is rooted in your deep introversion and refusal to acknowledge the collective unconscious. What have you got to say to that?

7. SIGMUND:!

Your mother.
