**Gerald was about to say something to Plant Man before Utonium and Whistler spoke up about his 'inner demon' issue**
Gerald: "It's a possibility but...I wonder why I keep losing consciousness & having violent flashbacks if it really is just a split personality? Also, when I came to Equestria, this issue didn't crop up for the first several months. Only started flaring shortly after I went back home due to storming out the cafe...and speaking of that"
**Gerald took a deep breath**
Gerald: "Whistler...I'm sorry for shouting like that at the start of the day. I shouldn't have let my bias about one universe's company be applied to all other related ones. For all I know, in the reality where you come from, Futuretech may not even be into that sort of heinous science or severe crimes against humanity" **Lowers head in shame** "I shouldn't have judged you so harshly...and I feel like I've almost paid the price for it" **Tears flow out as he remembers his actions nearly cost them their lives**
