David finds Primrose for the first time with an egg in her mouth, and isn't scared to be talking with her, and describes a lot about himself.
Are you going to say something? You're dead, aren't you?
My name is David. I'm nine. My mother died too. She hit her head. Her name was Carolyn Sue Limpert. We used to live in Minnesota. That's a state. I have a momento in my pocket, but nobody is allowed to see it.
When Primrose makes a face, and David laugh for the first time in front of his grandma, she is pleased and allowed him to watch Tv. When grandma asked what happened, David says it was on thet Tv.
David! Still awake? Lights on? Tv? Is that the noise I hear?
Ha! Something funny on Tv!
David sees the wagon for the first time with Primrose, and instantly is willing to pull it, which Primrose says of course to, because it is less work for her.
