What happens when you strip the dialogue from an intense episode of Dr. Phil? You end up with a gloriously awkward and hilarious staring match!

In this video from YouTube user Bill Smith, an episode of Phil McGraw's daytime talk show starts off completely normal, but once the family in crisis takes the stage, no one can get a word out. If you can sit through the entire thing without cracking up or cringing, we commend you.

Check out the video below. (Note: The first 15 seconds contain dialogue introducing the day's guests.)
