Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 5, Section 40 Summary
- Billy eats well out of cans. He also keeps himself fit, as he was taught to in the Army.
- The Tralfamadorians don't know that Billy isn't good-looking by human standards. This does good things for Billy's confidence.
- One of the Tralfamadorians asks Billy (via a speaker in his habitat) if he's happy there.
- Billy answers that he's about as happy on Tralfamadore as he was on Earth.
