- Jack takes pleasure in the various animals that come with Monsanto's cabin.
- He even puts out a nightly plate of cheese and chocolate for the resident mouse (proclaiming his "days of killing mice are over").
- He takes a moment to catalogue the items in the cabin and out, from the smallest bugs to the largest mountain.
- Jack is so relaxed, he again asks how he could possibly go insane within three weeks. But then he adds: "there are signposts of something wrong."
