    Mrs. Kate Collingwood: [laughing] Well... what do you want from me?

    Jebediah Nightlinger: Madam, you know young boys... they dream of golden skin and unbound hair. Even if I could lock them up they would find a way of getting here.

    Mrs. Kate Collingwood: There is very little I could do about that.
