  • On the train, Poirot observes Mary Debenham and Colonel Arbuthnot chatting in an empressement fashion, even though they are supposed to have only just met. There was a calamity in the dining car which resulted in a small delay which upsets Miss Debenham greatly.
  • At the Tokatlian Hotel, Poirot surreptitiously observes Mr. Ratchett and Mr. MacQueen eating in the restaurant. He does not like Mr. Ratchett because he gives off a savage impression. Poirot also runs into his old friend M. Bouc and begins talking jovially with hum.
  • On the Orient Express, there is only one second class sleeping berth left on the whole train whih Poirot shares with Hector MacQueen. MaQueen deferentially asks Poirot if he has made a mistake but the conductor told him that this was the only bed left.
  • Mr. Ratchett peremptorily asks Poirot if he will help him. He believes that he has enemies that are going to try and hurt him while on the train.
