"So many people are. Afraid of firemen, I mean. but you're just a man after all...
"you know, im not afraid of you at all."
"why should you be?"
"Go home and think of your first husband divorced and your second husband killed in a jet and your third husband blowing his brains out, go home and think of the dozen abortions you've had, go home and think of that and your damn Caesarian sections, too, and your children who hate your guts! Go home and think how it all happened and what did you ever do to stop it? Go home, go home!"
"You want to visit my house and `family,' well and good. But I won't come in this fireman's crazy house again in my lifetime! "
"No. The same girl. McClellan. McClellan, Run over by a car. Four days ago. I'm not sure. But I think she's dead. The family moved out any way. I don't know. But I think she's dead."
"Gone?"..."We couldn't be talking about the same girl."
"I meant to tell you. Forgot." ... "I think she's gone."
