Later, as he's putting up the puppet theater, a hard rain begins to fall. A little boy walks up to him and he looks so much like Henry that it can't have been a casting coincidence. "Wow, puppets!" the boy exclaims. "What a great job you have!" Jiminy just sulks in silence and continues about his work. "You don't like it?" the boy asks. "No, no, I don't," says Jiminy. "Same shows, same fairs every year." The boy asks, quite logically, why he doesn't do something else, then. Jiminy sighs and tells him, "This is just who I am." Before he can depress the child too much, Jiminy changes the subject and the two of them talk about the crickets they hear chirping in the background. Jiminy gets all wistful. The boy sweetly gives Jiminy his umbrella before running home. People keep giving him umbrellas. It's almost as if they'd read ahead in the script. Jiminy stands there for a while in the rain, listening to the chirping and looking sad.
In the real world, Archie is deep in the middle of some scowling in his office when Marco pops in for a visit. Archie's surprised to see him, having forgotten about their lunch date. Archie makes his apologies, but he has another patient coming. And there he is now! Moppet-about-town Henry comes in. After Marco leaves, Henry asks, "Are you recruiting Geppetto for Operation Cobra?" This is the first Archie's heard of Marco being Geppetto, so Henry explains that Jiminy and Geppetto are best friends, the same as Archie and Marco. Archie looks irritated and paces the office a bit. He's just about to broach the subject of Henry's new "treatment plan" when Henry starts showing him all the stuff in his backpack. He's going to find proof and to help him he's packed flashlights and candy bars. Archie gets a little panicky. "Henry, you do not want to go down there." Sure, he does! Kids love doing stupid, dangerous things. "Emma's here and stuff's happening," Henry says, all bright eyes and ruddy little cheeks of happiness. Archie takes him by the shoulders and has him sit down on the couch. "All of this is a delusion," he says. "It's something that's not real, and not healthy [...] and now it's turned into a psychosis." The whole time Archie's talking, Henry's face goes from curious to stony to furious. Archie desperately tells Henry he needs to stop before he gets himself locked away. For a few seconds, Henry gets this intense look like he's going to go firestarter on Archie, but he just storms out of the office. Archie watches him go, then breaks down crying. Destroying a child's dreams isn't all fun and games.
