(Over lunch in the care, Paul and Marie argue about newspapers.)
Paul: Look at this. The paper says that a tornado carried a woman for 33 miles, and she lived to tell about it.
Marie: I’m not sure if you know this, but that story isn’t true.
Paul: It’s in the paper. It must be true.
Marie: That paper is trash. I can’t believe you’re reading it.
Paul: What do you mean?
Marie: It’s fiction, not news. Nothing in there is true. If you want real news, you have to read this paper.
Paul: That paper is boring. This one’s much more interesting.
Marie: “Woman Gives Birth to Cow!” “Man Builds House from Bread!” “Baby with Two Heads!” Come one. This is offensive.
Paul: “Storm Kills 100 in Texas.” “Train Accident Kills Five, Injures More.” “Man Kills Wife and Son.” I’m sorry, but all that death and destruction is pretty offensive to me.
Marie: I know that these things happened. And I know that those didn’t.
Paul: You don’t know that. You just assume that it’s true.
Marie: Let’s ask Bob and Mr. Evans what paper they read. Never mind. Let’s just read.
Paul: That sounds good to me. Look at this! “A Man with Four Legs!”
