'This is the moment"

Jekyll & Hyde on Broadway -

Robert Louis Stevenson wrote the first draft of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in a white heat after waking from a dream. It made a tremendous impression when it was published and has remained firmly embedded in modern consciousness ever since.

The 'Jekyll and Hyde' is a person who has vastly different actions and responses depending on what he needs and desires and thinks at the moment. Who is unhappier - the Jekyll and Hyde character or the person who encounters him?
