The player calls him and they have a conversation, but we only hear Les's side. And he confirms, 'Yes, they do look like little ants.' While looking down on the street. [[spoiler:And the idea is so contagious that Mr Carlson and Andy Travis, holding the phone for Les to talk, and worried sick over his suicide attempt, LOOK DOWN at the street too.]]
