And then, suddenly, it was all too much. Something snapped inside Betty,
and she threw her head back and screamed.
"Clark Kent" looked around in apparent nervous confusion, and "Scully" came running up. "Are you all right, ma'am?" she said.
Betty started laughing in a somewhat unhealthy-sounding manner. "No. No, I am not all right... Scully." She spat the name with precision. "I have always prided myself on having a clear concept of the line between fiction and reality." She giggled again. "And right now, this very minute, I'm standing here talking to Superman!"
Kent looked extremely taken aback. "What are you talking about?" he said, not entirely convincingly.
"Mulder and Scully," contintued Betty, oblivious, "and Superman and that Nightstalker guy... Who else?" She looked around, as if searching for more fictional characters among the radiotelescopes. "Mr. Spock and Captain Kirk? Avon, you here? Doctor?"
"I think maybe you should sit down for a minute, Miss," said Clark.
Betty paid him no heed. "Maybe you could get Sherlock Holmes to assist you with your case!" she told Scully.
