As one of the doctors at Bethlem Asylum, he interviews a sickly girl, Alice, over her previous claims of traveling to another world and falling in love with a genie. As he converses with her, Alice repeatedly lapses into a daze and doesn't respond. Though she does make weak admissions to those recollections as lies, Dr. Lydgate does not believe it because Alice still calls out for her lost love in her sleep. Instead, he offers her a medical solution that will take away all the pain. After she gives her consent to the procedure, Dr. Lydgate begins making preparations for it and encounters Alice in the hallway as she is escaping. Hastily, he tries to stop her from going, but is stunned into silence upon seeing a talking rabbit. Recalling his disbelief in her "delusions", Alice asks him if he, too, is seeing things. ("Down the Rabbit Hole")
