From The Rapist:
"I was framed," I said, playing.
"Okay," I countered, "what do you think, then?"
"I think," he started, and then paused, furrowing his brow into wavy lines,
"that you're some kind of genius that doesn't belong anywhere. I'd say you're like movies I've seen sometimes where the main guy has been miscast. Like a comedy that isn't funny because the hero isn't. I mean, the line are funny, you can see that, but you don't laugh because the actor doesn't say them right. It's like he's in a different movie than the others."
