- "I lied about T. Brooks Ellis liking my hair. I do not know T. Brooks Ellis. But I did read one of his books and he seemed like the type of guy that wouldn’t blink twice at a Tennessee top hat."
- —Eugene Porter on T. Brooks Ellis[src]
Ellis was the director of the Human Genome Project. He also authored several books, one of which was read by Eugene Porter.
Ellis' fate is unknown.
Eugene Porter mentions Ellis twice in the episode. The first time he claims that Ellis was his boss at the Human Genome Project and the smartest man he knew. He also states that Ellis said his mullet made him look like "a fun guy." This was later revealed to be a lie, and Eugene admits he never met Ellis, but read one of his books.
