ADALAI FOULE: It seems that the Boss poured a portion of his own power into the creation of Binky… and now that the paperclip is no longer here, the Boss has been harmed by its absence.
ALICE: You’re kidding me.
ADALAI FOULE: I’m afraid not. His psyche is compensating for the loss by slowly turning him into a cheerful, winking paperclip.
ALICE: He’s turning into Binky?
ADALAI FOULE: In a manner of speaking.
ADALAI FOULE: When you imbue an object with a piece of your own essence, there are often unintended side-effects. Especially if, as in the case of Binky, the object has a will of its own.
VIKTOR SCHRECK: So what are we supposed to do now? Throw Binky into the heart of a volcano or something?
ADALAI FOULE: Only if you want the Boss to act like Binky on a permanent basis.
VIKTOR SCHRECK: …right. Sorry. For a moment I forgot we were the villains.
ADALAI FOULE: I blame Postmodernism for that.
