A Dialogue

PERSON A: You have Asperger’s.

PERSON B: You’re an idiot. (beat) We are playing a game, right? One in which we state something obvious about the other person?

PERSON A: No . . .

PERSON B: No you’re not an idiot or no we’re not playing a game? I really require specificity to thrive. Oh! We could play “Idiot, Not an Idiot.” (pointing to PERSON A) Idiot. (pointing to self) Not an idiot. (beat) We need more people.

I sort of see this as happening between Anderson and Sherlock, though I’m not sure what the circumstances would have to be to prompt such a conversation . . . Though I’ve actually participated in this dialogue myself (as Person B).
