Valentine appears in the garden.

"...meeting the extended family, are we?"

Permalink

Jean glances up at him but doesn't say anything. (Cato's instructions did not include talking.)

Permalink

 

He looks between the two of them.

 

Permalink

 

Jean returns to reading, looking very like Cato as he does so.

Permalink

 

"...Monsieur Dulac."

Permalink

Jean looks up, still with Cato’s attitude — glances apologetically at Cato — extracts himself from the chickens, heads over towards Valentine. 

Permalink

 

"...I appear to have acquired another Cato overnight."

Permalink

“—oh, I’m sorry.”

He drops it all, halfway through the sentence. 

Permalink

"...that's quite impressive, actually."

He looks him up and down.

"How long does it take you to, ah, pick someone up?"

Permalink

“...it usually takes me a few days to see someone in enough different situations to observe the full range of their mannerisms?”

Permalink

Permalink

"And between observation and execution...nothing?"

Permalink

“...yes, Valentine.”

Permalink

"You continue to surprise me."

Permalink

“... I just ... do what they do.”

Permalink

"It's not as easy as all that, for the average person."

Permalink

Cato is, apparently, extremely focused on drawing chickens.

Permalink

“The average person isn’t very good at things.”

Permalink

"A fair point. But it's not as easy as all that for most professionals, either."

Permalink

He shrugs, helplessly. 

Permalink

He opens his mouth – glances aside at Cato.

"...in any case, I'll want to see you demonstrate your talents sometime soon."

Permalink

 

Yes, Valentine,” transcendently delighted. 

Permalink

Cato can hide an impressive amount of himself behind an 8.5"x11" sketchpad.

Permalink

"Cato, your bread is in the oven."

Permalink

"...oh. Okay."

He stands, nudging a bird out of the way.
