  1. Teddy said that Sammie never had a wife, so Sammie wasn’t completely made up. I thought there was an interesting ‘dance’ with the fact that he had damned a man with the same condition he had. I don’t think Sammie was completely made up, I think Leonard finished Sammies story to fit his own guilt. Where Sammie just got fired or whatever, Leonard’s condition led him to killing his wife. I don’t think Teddy was lying to Leonard at the end, what would be the point? He knows he’d forget about it in 15 mins. I bet Teddy is actually incredibly honest with Leonard at points – but unless he writes it down, doesn’t matter what he tells him or not.
