"Mad Men"
PEGGY: Why didn't you tell me you had a family? Your father's nice.
GINSBERG: He's not my real father. (Beat.) People don't understand.
PEGGY: Are you adopted?
GINSBERG: Actually, I'm from Mars.
(PEGGY laughs.)
GINSBERG: It's fine if you don't believe me, but that's where I'm from. I'm a full-blooded Martian.
(PEGGY laughs again.)
GINSBERG: Don't worry, there's no plot to take over Earth. I'm just displaced.
PEGGY: Okay.
GINSBERG: I can tell you don't believe me. That's okay. We're a big secret. They even tried to hide it from me. That man -- my "father" -- told me a story I was born in a concentration camp, but you know that's impossible.
(PEGGY's brow furrows.)
GINSBERG: And I never met my mother 'cause she supposedly died there -- THAT'S convenient. Next thing I know, "Morris" there finds me in a Swedish orphanage. I was five; I remember it.
PEGGY: That's incredible.
GINSBERG: Yeah. And then I got this one communication. Simple order: "Stay where you are."
PEGGY: Are there others like you?
GINSBERG (serious): I don't know. I haven't been able to find any.
(PEGGY is nonplussed. She returns to typing.)
