- It was the nearest hospital.

I was playing with them.

- The doctor... - John?

Christine is still with us.

- Christine's dead, Laura.

Christine's dead.

- I know, of course!

The two ladies in the restaurant,

they were watching us while we ate.

They told me they could see

Christine sitting between us.

This is two people we don't even know!

I don't have any fifties.

Maybe I'll light six.

Thank you, my love.
