The Stand Scene from page 815 Presented by Hailey Denson
Leading up to this scene there is a community who wants to send spies to a different community because that other community is planning something. Three members of a committee inside of this community have to choose which of the people do they need to send as spies. One of them has chosen Tom Cullen who is mentally retarded. That is Stephen King's description not mine.
What do you like to eat that comes in a bowl with meat and vegetables and gravy?
Nick then hands Ralph a notebook and Ralph reads it out loud.
Stew! You're Stew!
Tom blanks out for a couple seconds then it clicks.
M-O-O-N, that spells Stew, Tom Cullen knows that, everybody knows that!
