Ah.

[A light clearing of his throat, the sound of a man who thinks highly of his own voice.]

I won’t humor the usual antics, desperately claiming a psychological breakdown -- and one complete with elaborate delusions! This can’t be defined as mild material, in terms of one's mental perception. I'd have to be highly schizophrenic, what the layman might call a raving lunatic -- and we know that isn't the case. I know that isn't the case.

[He clears his throat again, wishing he could wash out the slight whine in his voice.]

Come now, let's be reasonable. I have pressing matters back home -- I'm the Chief of Staff at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. The Baltimore State Hospital! For the Criminally Insane. [A beat.] You do still have a Baltimore here, yes? I've skimmed your preposterous Network albeit briefly, but not many people seem concerned about Maryland. [The next few words he speaks come dryly, as if he comes from a tristate region where his state is routinely ignored:] Hence why it took some persuasion, to believe this was some sort of "novel universe".

[The audible exhale overheard seems strained, as if perhaps he’s adjusting his tie quite unnecessarily.]

If I may continue? Despite your alleged superheroics and the, ah, interesting geographical edits, there are quite a lot of rather uncanny similarities. Between this world and mine, rather. Doesn't that make you wonder -- whose world is the right one? Oh, you know, "right" one, the original. Which of you are derivatives?

Funny thing to ask.
