Dolores:
I remember wrenching the steering wheel to the right and slapping my foot against the brake petal. I wasn't the driver anymore. The bus was like this huge wave about to break over us. Bear Otto, the Lambston kids, the Hamiltons, the Prescotts, the teenaged boys and girls from Bartlett Hill Road, Pete, Suzy, Laura, Rick, Sean Walker, Nicole Burnell, Billy Ansel's twins, Jessica and Mason... all the children of my town.


[begins sobbing]



Mitchell Stephens:

Mary:
(Speaking of a new computer, a gift) From Mr. Stephens... That was him on the phone just now. He was calling to see how you were.



Nicole:
Who's Mr. Stephens?



Sam:
Uh, he's a lawyer. He's our lawyer.



Nicole:
You and Mom have a lawyer?



Sam:
Well, yes. He's your lawyer, too.



Nicole:
My lawyer. Why do I need a lawyer?



Mary:
Well maybe we shouldn't be talking about this just now, with you barely home. Aren't you hungry, honey? You want me to fix you something?



Nicole:
No. What's this lawyer business?

Mason:
Nicole, did the Pied Piper take the children away because he was mad that the town didn't pay him?



Nicole:
That's right.



Mason:
Well, if he knew magic, if he could get the kids into the mountain, why couldn't he use his magic pipe to make the people pay him for getting rid of the rats?



Nicole:
Because... he wanted them to be punished.



Mason:
So he was mean?



Nicole:
No, not mean, just... very angry.

[phone ringing]



Mitchell Stephens:
That's my daughter. Or it may be the police to tell me they've found her dead. She's a drug addict.



Billy Ansell:
Why are you telling me this?



Mitchell Stephens:
Why am I telling you this, Mr. Ansel? Because we've all lost our children. They're dead to us.
