Michael Templeton : I just wanted to check on dad. How's he doing?
Elisa Padriera : Well, he's stable but vegetative. Totally unaware of his surroundings.
Douglas Templeton : A man comes at night. He comes to the house and takes me.
Michael Templeton : Dad!
Elisa Padriera : OK, that's surprising.
Douglas Templeton : He wears a suit. His hair is thick, like a Bolshevik commissar. He made me watch a giraffe with the legs of a man!
Michael Templeton : Dad, it's me, Michael.
Douglas Templeton : He gave money to a silver man. He ate a plate of fire!
Michael Templeton : Dad, there's no man.
Douglas Templeton : Yes! He was in prison. But now he owns a railroad!
Michael Templeton : What is going on? Why is he all worked up?
Elisa Padriera : You know, sometimes they watch cartoons, and they think it's real.
