* P.I. Douglas Reilly in ''PataNoir'' is off of his (unspecified) medication - because he "works better" without it - and therefore has a somewhat more literal view of metaphors than most people. If the text says that a cigarette butt is smoking like the embers of a dying fire, Reilly can (apparently) ''pick up one of the embers'' and use it to warm up a potential client who's been acting coldly toward him.

* Outsider art is, for better or worse, generally considered to be this, since it is usually created by individuals with various mental illnesses, the most common one being paranoid schizophrenia. Drawings and paintings created by individuals with schizophrenia are often interpreted as being representative of their own distorted perception of reality, although historically it's only the most severe cases that are reflected. One outsider artist, August Natterer, had a severe case of paranoid schizophrenia that started with a debilitating hallucination he suffered where he reportedly saw thousands of allegedly prophetic images of Revelations in an hour. All of his paintings after that point were of his various hallucinations.

Life is going good. Oh, okay -- you might be a little stressed out or a little down in the dumps but it's nothing serious. Then things start going wrong. You see a face on the outside of a ten-story window; an impostor seems to be taking your place at home; the same white-eyed man keeps watching you from a distance; a tramp gives you proof that your neighbor is a demon, but the proof disappears soon after (as does the tramp).

You try to gather proof, you try to convince your wife, but she doesn't believe you. None of them believe you. They say you're crazy, but you're not crazy. Not at all. It's ''them'' making everyone think that. And they replaced your wife with one of ''them'', so you had to kill it. You wouldn't kill your wife, would you? Would you? Of course not. It's all real. It has to be, because otherwise you'd be seeing Through the Eyes of Madness.
