Hazel: By yourself, alone? You'll die!

Fiver: [long pause after Violet has been carried off by an attacking hawk, then] Violet's gone.
Fiver: Hazel, look... the field... it's covered with blood!

Hazel: Is it dangerous?
Fiver: It's not exactly danger, it's... oh, I don't know. Something oppressive... like thunder.
Fiver: [in the grip of a vision] So cold... so very cold...
