"With the green tie? Yeah. What about him?"
"I bet he's an alien."
"Don't be snarky."
"I'm serious. You see how he's sitting by himself, just eating? He's not even trying to network."
"And that makes him an alien?"
"Sure. Half the point of being here is making connections. It's like wasting the registration fee to not talk to people."
"Maybe he's shy."
"A grown man? Please. Besides, look at how he's eating. He just... eats. First he ate the salad, then the soup, and now he's working his way through the entree."
"How the hell should he eat it? By osmosis?"
"No, I mean he's like a machine. Fork, chew, swallow. Fork, chew, swallow. He doesn't look up, doesn't look around, doesn't talk to anybody, doesn't even try to make eye contact with anyone. It's like he's following a computer program, like he's a robot alien."
"Why are you so obsessed with that guy? Just ignore him."
"I still think he's an alien."
