* BlackComedy: Dick's deadpan, almost nonchalant presentation of the most bizarre and terrifying events. A character tries to commit suicide by washing down a lot of pills with a very expensive bottle of wine. [[spoiler:It may or may not have worked, but either way the character hallucinates that he spends thousands of years having his sins read to him by a bizarre alien. His response is "At least I had the wine."]]
