  • Karl offers to help the kid carry his laundry.
  • On the way to the boy's house, the boy introduces himself as Frank Wheatley.

  • Anyway.
  • Karl says he just got out of the state hospital after killing some folks.
  • Frank asks if Karl is now well.
  • "I reckon I feel all right," Karl says.
