What is this guy? Crazy? Teeny? Tiny? Invisible?
Now, up to the 20th century, last week I go in to order a burger at this fast-food joint, and the guy drops it on the floor. James, he picks it up, he wipes it off, he hands it to me like it's all OK. "What about the germs?" I say. He says "I don't believe in germs. Germs is a plot made up so they could sell disinfectants and soaps." Now he's crazy, right? See? There's no right, there's no wrong, there's only popular opinion."

"Day after day
Alone on a hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning 'round...

And he never listens to them
He knows that they're the fools
They don't like him"
The Beatles, "The Fool on the Hill"

Kenji: Something on your mind, dude?
Hisao: Just thinking about what it's like to be the last sane man in an insane world.
[Kenji frowns, looking deeply upset]
Kenji: You mean that's you? That can't be, because I'm the last sane man in an insane world. That is my dream; you can't just steal a man's dream. What the hell? There can't be two last sane men. It would invalidate that whole "last" part... and that part is kind of important. There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.
