Mel McGinnis is a cardiologist by profession. The author sought to use his profession to bring out a concept about matters of the heart. Being a cardiologist, we would expect him to be the one who has a lot of insight into matters of the heart. Indeed, he does bring out this aspect in the story. He about love more than the rest and does have the strongest opinions (Carver, 1996).
However, his explanations about love are blurred and do not seem to be making any sense at all. He has got the facts about love, how it is practiced and how meaningful it is, but he cannot explain these facts. He even makes it clear that he has a desire to kill his ex-wife. Thus, the author ironically brings out Mel as a character who, despite being a heart expert, knows totally nothing about the matters of the heart.
