Or, after drinking orange juice sample the previous day:

You join in, hooting and gibbering along. The doctors seem awkward, as though you're the one babbling nonsense.

Eventually, slowly, their words start to make sense to you. By the time the conversation is over, you feel you have a firmer grasp on humanity. Almost as though you've watched the first stirrings of language among ancient man.

Kill them all

The scientists stand their ground as you charge in. Perhaps that wasn't the best idea.

Avoid the crazy people

You leave the crazy people to their ravings and head further into the building. Several minutes later, you find yourself staring into an operating room.

Unfortunately, the crazies seem to have followed you, forcing you to wander ever further to get away from them. You begin peering around corners and sneaking down hallways until you finally escape the last vestiges of their presence.
