Believe me when I tell you this conversation never really happened.

Brown: So, have you been watching Barry?

Orange: Yeah. I like that show.

Brown: Me, too. But can you imagine having your TV show cancelled because of an algorithm?

Orange: Oh, as compared to, say, killing people for a living?

A silent beat later.

Brown: You think they’re suggesting an analogy?

Orange: Either that or a metaphor. Or an allegory. In any case, I’m trying not to think about it.
