If it is... Ba-Boom! Another jolt is applied. Experts say unconsciousness occurs before pain has time to register. They agree that electrocution does not hurt. But it does. Unimaginably... Believe me... I... don't expect a call from the governor. Any last words... Captain?

Why do you think she was lookin' around? You're nothing, Corvis. Less than nothing! You can't do this to me, you little fucks! You hear me? You understand? I'll be back! Just like you! A big, fucking, shit-spewing bird! And guess which little bitch I'm taking out first!

    Book Lady: These books were alive; they spoke to me!

  • The Captain: Listen to me, Montag. Once to each fireman, at least once in his career, he just itches to know what these books are all about. He just aches to know. Isn't that so?
