Added DiffLines:

* AgonyBeam: There's a MindRape machine that looks like a sun lamp shining on a hair-salon chair. And Kirk isn't even strapped in. He '''could''' just stand up and walk off, but apparently it's so intense that he only sit there writhing in pain as a sort of post-hypnotic suggestion is used on him.

The crazy old man is at first believed to be an escaped inmate from Tantalus, but it's discover that he's actually Simon Van Gelder, one of the doctors. Dr. Adams tells Kirk that Dr. Van Gelder pulled a ProfessorGuineaPig while working on a device called the Neural Neutralizer, losing his mind in the process. And would he kindly return him? Bones tells Kirk he smells a rat. Kirk gives Adams some B.S. about how they can't due to some red tape. Adams good naturedly accepts this and cordially invites Kirk down for a visit. Kirk takes him up on this. Bones suggests Kirk take a psychological expert with him. He recommends Dr. Noel. It seems Kirk and Dr. ''Helen'' Noel have met before. Apparently, even in the future office Christmas parties can get out of hand....

* FreakOut: Dr. Van Gelder has the mother of them all! Screaming, raving, crazy eyes, violent outbursts. He shouts "I am not a criminal!" (Yeah, Simon, there was this guy called UsefulNotes/RichardNixon who made the same claim.) Incidentally, the actor needed a four day reprieve after this emotionally taxing role.
