Not everybody would've figured out how to rebalance this thing. You get me?" "Sure!" said Joe. "You three had better look out for yourselves." Mike stared at him and grimaced. "You don't get it," he said brittlely. "All right. I may be crazy, at that." Joe rejoined Sally. The idea of a picnic was brand new to him, but he approved of it completely.

We've got a hell of a thing coming along now just because he wouldn't make the socially acceptable response to having a rich wife and no brains. He rebelled.
