It's probably a bad sign when the page has to have this note: "The page illustration is not this trope."

2 + Torture = 5 is about using torture to make a person believe a lie. Currently we just have an image of a lie - no torture or believing.

We need a screenshot of Gul Madred with the four lights behind him.

I just pulled the current page image:

Not a good image for this trope... but what a great image! It's real, btw (about half way down the page.)

[up]I know. I was hesitant to mention it because the image is great. (Just not right.)

IIRC this trope used to be called 2 + 2 = 5 and this image is a holdover.

Could something from Picard's torture from 'The Chain of Command' (the 'There are four lights!') episode work?

Here's a pic of Gul Madred with the four lights behind him, but I dunno if this would be enough.

EDIT: Possibly shrunk down and paired with this?

I think that could work...Picard is in pain, and we can have a caption that has a quote from the episode. My recommendation is this exchange.

"I didn't ask you about Minos Korva. I asked how many lights you see." "There are four lights." "I don't understand how you can be so mistaken."

Here's a take on the Madred/Picard scene.

"I asked how many lights you see."
"There are four lights."
"I don't understand how you can be so mistaken."

I dont think "I didn't ask you about Minos Korva." is needed there. (otherwise its good.)

I like that Picard one. Just start with "I asked you..."

The words above are to be read as if they are narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Calling this one. The new pic is up, potholed, tagged, and captioned; if someone can edit the caption to pothole the second line correctly, that'd be great. Hollering for a lock.
