"No, it is definitely not a good thing."
"Here's my card, Mr. Adams. Please call within the next forty-eight hours to set up an appointment when all your family members will be present and we can come by. We will need up to two hours to do our job."

"By the way, Mr. Meriwether, have you ever read a book called 1984 by George Orwell or perhaps Brave New World by Aldous Huxley?"
"No sir, I haven't."
"Do you ever read anything, Mr. Meriwether?"
"Only what I'm given and pertains to my job."
"So I guessed."
"Good day, Mr. Adams."
"It was a good day up until you showed up."

"Who were those men you were talking to?"
"The Thought Police."
