Emily: I think Jackson is depressed.

Shivan: How can you tell?

Emily: Well, he’s been suffering from a loss of appetite and is generally lethargic.

Shivan: Have you noticed any other symptoms?

Emily: He seems to have trouble concentrating and has insomnia.

Shivan: Um, really?

Emily: Yes, and I’m afraid he’s having suicidal thoughts. He seems distant and distracted, staring off into space. He’s not his usual self.

Shivan: How can you tell?

Emily: What do you mean?

Shivan: I mean, he looks the same to me. He just swims back and forth in the fish tank.

Emily: Just look at him. He’s on the edge of mental collapse!

Shivan: Somebody is.
