* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: A comedic and extremely weird example in "The Diff" when a geek is split in half vertically, one half being a macho alpha while the other retains his original meek demeanor, and the two go on to live their own lives, both utterly paranoid that the other half is having a better life. They eventually find peace within Eban's cross-eyed gaze, that makes it look like they're together again in his vision.
