Actually, Paul is an Innocent who just happens to be staying at the hotel. He has been mistaken for Mr. Braynes, the writer of the purchased-but-never-used TNG script (the Lost Episode). Hence all the bizarre huggermugger and foofaraw makes no sense to him at all...

You could have made that a little clearer . . . I saw the name discrepancy and just chalked it up to him being the actual author using 'Braynes' as a pen-name.
