"I told you he was a sweetie," Rebecca tells her parents.

"There should be a tree in your school. Like at least one tree," says Beth.

“There are, like, magic bonsais and stuff, but they’re not really the same.”

"There are magic bonsais? I didn't see any magic bonsais!" says Rebecca.

“I knew a guy with one, he brought it in for mana storage! It was cool.”

"Oh neat! I still have my shell, I should probably get something else figured out at some point for that now that I'm not just hooked up to Sacramento."

“We have a directory of people who sell that kind of thing, if you want to take a look,” says Zeke’s father. “Doesn’t come up often, handy when it does.”

"Oh, that would be good! A bunch of kids had stuff their parents made out of synthetic gems - the girl I passed Vanya's guitar to wore huge emerald pears everywhere - so I was thinking I'd do something like that if I didn't have a better idea but I'm not really an artificer."

“It’s important to specialize,” Warren/Zeke’s father/Mr. Bannister says, gruffly. “Work with you’ve got. You’re a singer?”

"Yeah, that's my affinity! I'm thinking maybe I will apply to Julliard - not sure about this year but the next at least."

“It’s best not to rush into anything too quickly,” advises Edna. “Take your time, figure out what you want outside of that horrible school, let your hair down a little.”

"That's the plan! But Zeke said I could get Manhattan Prep letters if I want."

“Of course, dear,” says Edna.

"Thanks!"

"That's the school wizards pretend they went to? What if someone tries to find it?" says John.

“We have ways and ways.”

“There’s no need to be so ominous, Damien - if they call that one office that pretends to be seven different offices they’ll find everything in perfect order, their GPS won’t work correctly if they go to the listed address, all that sort of thing,” says Edna.

"What are the other six?" wonders Mr. Dillard.

“Oh, financial this and that, something new for every sort of form or reference, you know,” she says, making a dismissive gesture.

Permalink

"And you have to have a wizard doing that, and not doing magic?"

Permalink

“Not always, but most of the time. There aren’t, really, all that many mundanes who know the whole of everything, and there are always lots of wizards who’d like a good word with New York.”

"I want to know the holy everything," says Judy.

Permalink

“Are you really very sure?”

Permalink

"YES," says Judy. Rebecca pats her on the head.

Permalink

“Well, if you’d like to know one holy everything, if not the holy everything, I expect that you’re going to live a very long and healthy life, with hardly anything wrong with it at all, and that you’ll be very happy with it.”

Permalink

"That is not a holy everything," mutters Judy.
