“My condolences, then.”

The waiter chooses this moment to come by and take their orders!

Permalink

Warren, Damien, Lincoln, and Zeke all order ramen and a few different sides and appetizers; Edna asks for a small salad and a glass of tea and nothing else. 

Permalink

Rebecca wants ramen! She agrees to split tempura with Beth and John, and threatens to steal edamame from her mom.

"I have gained five pounds already," she says, when the waiter's gone. "Real food is AMAZING. I'm switching to more of a like, actual workout routine with a gym and everything, instead of just planking constantly, so hopefully that'll level out in a bit."

Permalink

“We should work out together! Or, like, in the same gym, next to each other. Real gyms are so good! - also also ALSO, I listened to playlists from a ton of theater things that are open right now, and I thought that you’d like Jesus Christ Superstar and I got tickets for after dinner if you wanna! Also we still need to go to a church so god doesn’t think New York reneges on deals or whatever but that can happen later probably!”

"Oh wow you got tickets for tonight? Amazing!!!" she squeals.

"Did you get everybody one?" asks Beth.

Permalink

“I wanted to get us box seats and stuff, and there were only, like, two seats in a box, but if the rest of you wanna come and see if there are tickets left you totally can!”

Permalink

"Oooh, a box," coos Rebecca.

Permalink

“It’ll be so cool!”

Permalink

"Yeah! We'll be in town for a while so maybe we can see some stuff that came out recently that I haven't even heard of too."

Permalink

“We can see ALL of the stuff!”

Permalink

"It is SO GOOD to be OUT."

"They should fix that school," mutters Mrs. Dillard, "so it doesn't take children unexpectedly - we had no idea, for a year -"

Permalink

“Terrible business, that,” says Warren.

“Rest assured that the incident was investigated to the greatest possible extent,” says Damien, darkly.

Permalink

"What did they find out, I haven't heard anything."

Permalink

“Chicago janitor wanted a slot for her kid, figured she would kill an entire enclave for it. She’s been handled.”

Permalink

"Jesus!"

Permalink

“Enclaves are supposed to be safe.”

Permalink

"Yeah, no kidding. Who's her kid, anybody we'd know?"

Permalink

“Eliza Godfrey.”

Permalink

"Oh... I think I met her once but that's all." Also Rebecca is pretty sure she's dead but she's trying not to clarify the death rate to her family.

The waiter chooses this moment to arrive with appetizers!

Zeke tentatively picks at his tempura, without really eating much of it at all, in a way that strikes anyone who’s ever seen him eat before as being extremely uncharacteristic.

Permalink

"...saving room for ramen?" wonders Rebecca softly.

Permalink

“... uh. Yeah?” says Zeke, quietly and unconvincingly.

Permalink

"Are you sick or something -"

Permalink

“I’m, like - I don’t super wanna talk about it right now?”
