"I do. So I'm going to ask you again, why do you look like me?"
"Put the gun down and we can talk about it. Ok, ok, easy. Easy. I don't know what happened. I don't know why I look like you and you look like me."
"That's not a good enough answer."
"Please, please! I didn't do anything! I woke up like looking like you."
"No. You don't look like me. You are I and I'm you. Our bodies anyway. Certainly not intellectually or mentally, but physically, yes. Get up."
"What are you going to do to me?"
"I'm going to get my body back. But I have some questions first, about this world you live in. Sit. What year is it?"
"Two thousand and twelve."
"What place is this?"
"Nanaimo. That's in Canada."
