    There's no method to my madness. There is, however, madness to my method.

    I understand this to mean, "Even though he APPEARS to be mad, or even IS mad, it is clear to see that there is a definite, sane plan behind his actions."

    The point, Robyn:


    It first glance his actions appear to be madness (chaotic, pointless), but taking a deeper look reveals a coherent plan.
