“That’s a big building.”

“Haven’t you ever been here before?”

“That was a neat trick, walking through a door and ending up here,” he said, his eyes wide.

“It’s called a shortcut.”

“Is that how we’re going back?”

“If we go back, that’s how we’ll do it. Now PLEASE BE QUIET, so I can think.”

“You’re good at this.”
