frightening Dr. Sayer starts asking a man for some information and he starts yelling the information to him and is seemingly very mad but it is just the effects of his condition. Dr. Sayer starts talking to a mentally handicapped women and at first she is friendly but then starts screaming in fear for no apparent reason at all.
