This was well written. Hallucinations are certainly bizarre and you captured Reed's addled response to it. The poor Lieutenant...good story. :-)

Oh, that was funny! Loved it!

Grand story-refreshing to see Malcolm suffering from a drug interaction rather than being mortally wounded or being drowned (which in fanfic has to have happened several dozen times over). I like how even in his addled state, he spares a thought to the difficulty Trip will have getting his door unlocked-feels very "in character". And, although your "worst opening line" is marvelous, my favorite part is the following interaction between Malcolm and the taxi:

Cracking one eye open, he gave it his best evil look. “It’s not polite to stare,” he said to the thing. When it gave him a hurt look, he relented. “Well, so long as you stay over there for now, I suppose it’s…,” he yawned, and closed his eyes, “…fine.”

Oh, it was really funny and this struck me as particularly amusing: "the pills he’d taken earlier – he’d forgotten he’d taken those – had clearly been labelled, “Does not cause hallucinations involving taxi cabs,”". (And if such an event should occure, call for the nearest linguist :D).

And that was a part of 'the worst opening line to a story'? (or second worst, I guess)? Huh, odd.

Also, I think Reed was being rather diplomatic saying that food in America tasted odd because, when one's not used to it, it really tastes like paper.

Great story.
