- Мы должны позвать людей на помощь. Нам обоим грозит опасность. Сьюзан не верила ни единому его слову.
Бринкерхофф не уходил с дороги. - Это тебе велел Фонтейн? - спросила. Бринкерхофф отвернулся.
Ты нужна. Яростная волна гнева захлестнула. Она снова услышала голос Дэвида: Я люблю .

Он относится к ТРАНСТЕКСТУ как к священной корове. Мидж кивнула.
Мидж, ну пожалуйста, успокойся. Ты знаешь, что я не могу… Она фыркнула и снова повернулась к клавиатуре.
