Winston and Julia are fucking and all of a sudden, a rat comes crawling out of it's hole and Julia grabs a shoe and throws it at the rat. The rat decides to crawl back to it's hole. Now, Winston gets up in reaction to see that there's rats everywhere he sees and walks. Julia tells him that it's common to see rats in the apartment and she goes and lays down on the bed.
A rat. I saw him stick his beastly nose out of the wainscoting. There's a hole down there. I gave him a good fright, anyway.
Rats! In this room!!
They're all over the place. We've even got them in the kitchen at the hostel. Some parts of London are swarming with them.
