One of the great joys of working with an artist like Paul is that if you let him go he will surpass your every expectations. So it is with the hanger in Desmond's hand. How does that make the UI work? It's obvious.

Owen: Here's the spec for the preferences screen.
Desmond: That's okay, I took care of it.

Owen: You "took care of..."?
Desmond: The user interface. I designed it myself!

Owen: There's a reason we don't let developers design U.I.
Desmond (holding up a clothes hanger in left hand, typing with right hand, and working the mouse with his foot): But it's so simple! Look how easy it is to enter elevated alternate edit mode!
