That Fit, We Tint"

The Mirror: Overweening ego involvement

Websafe: Hello?
Mirror: Oh, you forgot to capitalize your Ego!
W: Some performers capitalize on their egos.
M: You didn't order this.
W: I'm trying to get away from overweening ego involvement.
M: It's sad.
W: It's sad when it gets in the way of developing character.
M: There are a lot of very commonplace names for emotions.
W: "Sad" is one of them.
M: Do machines need "encouragement" to make their gears turn?
W: I would guess that machines would respond better to encouragement than to sadness.
M: It costs a fair amount to eat eels.
W: Machines do not eat, unless you count fuel oil or electricity.
M: You noticed, or at least you decided to notice.
