Ray Bradbury connection? (SPOILER)

I've always wondered whether the ending was inspired by (or lifted from) a chapter in Ray Bradbury's "The Martian Chronicles." There's an episode in which one of the travelers to Mars can't get any of the Martians he encounters to believe he's from Earth. Finally, someone brings him to what he's told is a room full of his fellow Earthlings, even though they all look like Martians. It's only when they start talking about Earth and get all the details wrong that he realizes he's in an insane asylum.
