Oh, you know which part...
Yikes, Jerry. I hope you recover alright.
It seems a piece of chicken became lodged on his throat? Maybe?
Either way a doctor being an asshole doesn't make a stressful situation any easier.
More likely this is reference to dot matrix printers, The Matrix, and the dots pacman eats. The character Dot Matrix is also a reference to the printers.
These techniques worked in a severe case I had. Afterward, I had another procedure in which a long rubber cone is used to expand the esophagus a bit which seemed to help me.
"Choke" is probably inaccurate in this case since breathing is not affected. What does happen is that the body turns on saliva production to full in an attempt to flush down the obstruction. If it doesn't work however, the saliva just builds up. This is possibly why Jerry was spitting up constantly instead of swallowing.
