Is this it?

- Still believe this is a dream, do you?
- Of course. This has all come from my own mind.
- Which would mean that I'm not real.
- Afraid so. You're just a figment of my imagination. I would dream up someone who's half-mad.
- Yes, yes. But you would have to be half-mad to dream me up.
- I must be, then.

It sounds rather like one of my favourite passages from the books - When Tweedledee and Tweedledum show Alice the sleeping Red King:


`Well, it no use your talking about waking him,' said Tweedledum, `when you're only one of the things in his dream. You know very well you're not real.'
`I am real!' said Alice and began to cry.
`You won't make yourself a bit realler by crying,' Tweedledee remarked: `there's nothing to cry about.'
'If I wasn't real,' Alice said -- half-laughing though her tears, it all seemed so ridiculous -- `I shouldn't be able to cry.'
`I hope you don't suppose those are real tears?' Tweedledum interrupted in a tone of great contempt.
