Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 6, Section 2

By Kurt Vonnegut

Chapter 6, Section 2

  • Billy wakes up in his prison hospital.
  • The Englishmen are outside digging themselves a new latrine.
  • Inside the hospital, the Blue Fairy Godmother stops by to check on Paul Lazzaro and his broken arm.
  • Lazzaro says he'll have the Blue Fairy Godmother killed after the war.
  • The Blue Fairy Godmother basically says, not if I kill you first.
  • Lazzaro tells the Godmother, "Why don't you go f*** yourself?"; the Godmother answers, hilariously: "Don't think I haven't tried" (6.2.9).
