Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 2, Section 18 Summary
- Weary tells Billy about the Iron Maiden, dum-dums, and his father's Derringer pistol.
- (Incidentally, Weary's dum-dums aren't those tiny lollipop things; they are hollow-tipped, expanding bullets.)
- Weary bets that Billy doesn't even know what a blood gutter is.
- Billy guesses that it's the drain at the bottom of the Iron Maiden.
- Weary says no, it's a groove at the side of a sword or bayonet.
- Weary tells Billy about some tortures he's heard about in movies or invented himself.
