Hazel, what are we doing?

0:00:460:00:49

Making sure we're not late for assembly.

0:00:490:00:52

-But it's 5.30 in the morning.

-I know!

0:00:520:00:57

And you're always late for assembly.

0:00:570:01:00

The old Hazel was always late for assembly,

0:01:000:01:03

whereas the new Hazel is always on time

0:01:030:01:05

and is neither stubborn nor argumentative.

0:01:050:01:08

The new Hazel is rather dull.

0:01:100:01:12

Right. So what happened?

0:01:120:01:15

Miss Sinclair told me I had 37 demerit points

0:01:150:01:19

and she can expel me if I get 40.

0:01:190:01:21

So I have to be quiet and well behaved from now on.

0:01:210:01:24

Which is possible.

0:01:240:01:27

I can do it. It makes me feel neither angry or irritated

0:01:270:01:29

or stubborn at all.

0:01:290:01:31

I did not just do that.

0:01:350:01:37

It is the way he uses such unpretentious language

0:01:370:01:40

and also pulls you so completely into the story.

0:01:400:01:44

Seeing as you got on so well with Hemingway,

0:01:440:01:46

how about we try Farewell To Arms next?

0:01:460:01:48

Yes, please! Anything else by such a modern writer would be amazing!

0:01:480:01:52

A modern writer?

0:01:520:01:54

You can be pretty strange, Sophie.

0:01:540:01:57

But your enthusiasm's great.

0:01:570:01:59

KNOCK AT DOOR

0:01:590:02:01

-Is this the book club?

-Yes!

0:02:010:02:04

It's not exactly oversubscribed, is it?

0:02:040:02:06

I'm afraid, Headmaster,

0:02:060:02:08

that Sophie's the only pupil interested in joining.

0:02:080:02:11

But I love it, it is wonderful!

0:02:110:02:13

We discuss books!

0:02:130:02:16

Well, Mrs Miller, I have some new recruits for you.

0:02:160:02:20

These pupils are all behind on their literacy,

0:02:200:02:23

so I told them they have to join.

0:02:230:02:25

A little more reading and a little less Music-Video TV is the answer.

0:02:250:02:30

Is Music-Video TV the channel where girls perform strange dance moves,

0:02:300:02:35

which include hip gyrating?

0:02:350:02:38

That's the one, but not for these pupils any more. Mrs Miller,

0:02:380:02:44

I'll leave them in your capable hands. Toodle-oo!

0:02:440:02:48

You will love this club, I'm sure of it.

0:02:480:02:51

We will have so much fun discussing literature!

0:02:510:02:54

This after-school project will be an exciting and rewarding activity.

0:02:540:02:59

You'll be involved in establishing our very own hydraulic water pump.

0:02:590:03:04

Water is not exciting. Chocolate milkshakes are exciting!

0:03:040:03:08

May we do a project on chocolate milkshakes instead?

0:03:080:03:12

This pump will need to be large enough

0:03:120:03:14

to generate water for the whole of the school's ten-acre site.

0:03:140:03:18

-Not exactly fascinating!

-Hazel, think carefully.

0:03:180:03:22

Three demerits away from expulsion, remember?

0:03:220:03:25

Sorry, I meant to say, "Goodness, water! How incredibly fascinating."

0:03:250:03:29

I'm glad you feel that way,

0:03:290:03:32

because we will be starting as soon as possible.

0:03:320:03:34

First, we knock down this peppercorn tree to make room for the pump.

0:03:340:03:38

What did you say?!

0:03:380:03:40

-I said we're going to knock down this peppercorn tree.

-You cannot!

0:03:400:03:44

I think you'll find we can.

0:03:440:03:46

And we will.

0:03:460:03:48

Besides, you're hardly in a position to argue, are you?

0:03:480:03:51

Yes, Miss Sinclair.

0:03:510:03:53

GIGGLING

0:03:540:03:56

CRYING

0:03:580:04:01

Hazel! What is wrong?

0:04:050:04:07

Miss Sin...

0:04:070:04:11

I cannot... The stupid, stupid water.

0:04:110:04:17

I do not understand.

0:04:170:04:19

Miss Sinclair is chopping down the peppercorn tree

0:04:190:04:22

and she can't argue in case she is expelled.

0:04:220:04:24

And then she said, "Stupid, stupid water."

0:04:240:04:28

Your peppercorn tree? The one you planted with Mother?

0:04:280:04:33

The day before we...

0:04:330:04:35

The day before we died.

0:04:370:04:40

Stupid water.

0:04:400:04:42

I still do not understand the part about the stupid water.

0:04:420:04:45

She wants to build a hypnotic water pump,

0:04:450:04:49

so she's knocking down my tree for her hypno water and...

0:04:490:04:55

Do not worry.

0:04:570:04:58

We will think of something.

0:04:580:05:00

We must.

0:05:000:05:02

Planting the tree was the last thing Mother and I did together.

0:05:020:05:07

So, Sophie and I have been discussing Hemingway.

0:05:070:05:10

Has anyone else here read The Old Man And The Sea?

0:05:100:05:14

-I thought not.

-Mrs Miller.

-Yes.

0:05:140:05:17

So instead of reading the books,

0:05:170:05:20

couldn't we just, like, watch the DVDs?

0:05:200:05:23

That's hardly the same, Christine.

0:05:230:05:26

-But most films are based on books, aren't they?

-Not all.

0:05:260:05:29

Can you be a bit quieter? I'm trying to read a magazine.

0:05:290:05:32

-Mrs Miller.

-Yes.

-What do you reckon?

0:05:320:05:36

I "reckon" that the point is to read.

0:05:360:05:39

But I have so many DVDs and hardly any books.

0:05:390:05:42

I'm sure we can provide you with books, Christine.

0:05:420:05:45

So I'll just pick one that's based on a film.

0:05:450:05:48

-But Mrs Miller, could you...?

-Make them focus?

0:05:480:05:51

This isn't a lesson, Sophie.

0:05:510:05:53

It's a book club.

0:05:530:05:55

It's for fun.

0:05:550:05:57

It's not fun any more.

0:05:570:05:59

Hey.

0:06:080:06:09

SHE GASPS

0:06:090:06:11

Sorry, didn't mean to frighten you.

0:06:110:06:13

-Are you OK?

-I'm just upset about this tree.

0:06:150:06:20

OK, but how come?

0:06:220:06:24

Um... The reason is...

0:06:240:06:29

that I love all trees and though I may have never mentioned it,

0:06:290:06:32

trees are my...favourite things.

0:06:320:06:35

So are you an environmentalist?

0:06:350:06:38

Uh... No.

0:06:380:06:40

I mean, indeed, yes, I am.

0:06:400:06:42

Will that help?

0:06:420:06:44

Do envi-mental people usually get their way?

0:06:440:06:47

Sometimes.

0:06:470:06:49

They're pretty big on saving trees.

0:06:490:06:51

Then I'm an envi-mental and I have to save this tree!

0:06:510:06:56

Yet somehow I have to do this without getting expelled.

0:06:560:06:59

You could start a campaign.

0:07:000:07:02

I don't think teachers can give demerits for campaigns.

0:07:020:07:05

Not if it's for a good cause.

0:07:050:07:08

-Do you really think so?

-You might.

0:07:080:07:10

Then I shall do that, then. I shall start a campaign.

0:07:100:07:13

You're beyond compare, Matty

0:07:130:07:16

and I'm an envi-mental!

0:07:160:07:17

It's actually environmentalist.

0:07:190:07:21

Jonathan, is there anything you can tell me about envi-mentals?

0:07:250:07:29

I would if I knew what an envi-mental was.

0:07:290:07:33

People who save trees with campaigns.

0:07:330:07:36

They normally wear sandals.

0:07:360:07:38

Wear sandals. Oh!

0:07:380:07:40

What else?

0:07:410:07:44

Erm, sometimes they have dreadlocks too.

0:07:440:07:48

CRASH!

0:07:490:07:51

Oh. I crashed...again.

0:07:510:07:54

Hazel, you can't just make it go off every time you lose!

0:07:560:07:59

Oh!

0:07:590:08:01

So, what are dreadlocks?

0:08:010:08:04

-Dreadlocks are like big, matted bits of hair.

-Oh.

0:08:060:08:12

Is there anything else you can tell me?

0:08:120:08:15

Erm, they usually play a lot of acoustic guitar.

0:08:150:08:19

Mainly issue-based folk songs.

0:08:190:08:21

Jonathan, you are beyond compare and I'm an envi-mental!

0:08:210:08:25

I think you mean an environmentalist.

0:08:250:08:27

Ow!

0:08:290:08:31

Goodness.

0:08:330:08:34

What on earth are you doing?

0:08:340:08:37

I'm making her look like an environmentalist.

0:08:370:08:39

This is how they wear it.

0:08:390:08:41

It looks awful.

0:08:410:08:43

One of you needs to bathe.

0:08:470:08:48

That is me. I cannot bathe any more. It would be a betrayal to my cause.

0:08:480:08:54

Now I'm truly confused.

0:08:540:08:56

I read that environmentalists do not believe in wasting water.

0:08:560:09:00

So there'll be no more bathing for me.

0:09:000:09:03

Also, I'm learning the guitar

0:09:030:09:04

in order to perform some issue-based folk songs.

0:09:040:09:07

So where have YOU been?

0:09:070:09:09

Goodness.

0:09:110:09:12

-What are those? They look terrible!

-I do not care what they look like.

0:09:120:09:17

I am doing this because I care about something.

0:09:170:09:19

What do you care about, Rebecca?

0:09:190:09:21

Looking pretty.

0:09:210:09:23

And the importance of a good manicure.

0:09:230:09:27

So, I care about literature, Hazel is trying to save her tree and you...

0:09:270:09:33

You care about the importance of a good manicure?

0:09:330:09:36

I care about other things also.

0:09:360:09:38

Such as?

0:09:380:09:39

Boys.

0:09:390:09:41

There must be something else.

0:09:430:09:44

Due to be cut down Friday 15th?

0:09:470:09:49

Tomorrow?!

0:09:510:09:53

Well, I...

0:09:530:09:55

I must start my campaign right away!

0:09:550:09:57

# Save my trees

0:09:590:10:01

# But especially the peppercorn tree... #

0:10:010:10:05

Er, Hazel?

0:10:070:10:08

How come you look like a Woodstock throwback?

0:10:080:10:11

Well, I am an environmentalist now.

0:10:110:10:15

-Right.

-Will you sign my petition to save the peppercorn tree?

0:10:150:10:19

-No.

-Why would we care?!

0:10:190:10:22

Headmaster, there must be some other way to improve their literacy.

0:10:240:10:28

Surely the best way to improve literacy is for them to read more.

0:10:280:10:33

But they're not reading.

0:10:330:10:35

I had found a place where... A place where I could simply...

0:10:350:10:40

Be yourself? That's the answer.

0:10:400:10:43

Be yourself. Explain to them why literature means so much to you.

0:10:430:10:47

-Really?

-Yes, really.

0:10:470:10:50

-How did it go?

-Hopefully you'll have better luck than me.

0:10:550:11:00

# Save the trees

0:11:050:11:07

# Save the planet But don't warm the globe

0:11:070:11:09

# Save the tree

0:11:090:11:11

# And all other issues et cetera

0:11:110:11:13

# But especially save the tree Yeah yeah yeah! #

0:11:130:11:16

Here are my petitions in support of my campaign.

0:11:170:11:20

There's only one signature on it. Yours, 100 times.

0:11:200:11:24

Indeed. That simply shows how strongly I feel about it.

0:11:240:11:28

So now you care about this tree because you're an environmentalist?

0:11:280:11:32

That is right.

0:11:320:11:34

Oh, please also note my hair

0:11:340:11:36

and, a-hem, sandals.

0:11:360:11:39

You know, there's always one of you Ainsworth girls

0:11:400:11:43

in here asking for something. The thing is, Hazel,

0:11:430:11:46

that hydraulic water pump is good for the environment.

0:11:460:11:49

In what way is hypnotic water good for anything?

0:11:490:11:53

It's hydraulic. Never mind.

0:11:530:11:56

Water restrictions are increasing,

0:11:560:11:58

therefore it is very important that we produce our own water

0:11:580:12:01

and the school becomes self-reliant.

0:12:010:12:03

Stupid hair.

0:12:100:12:11

Is anyone looking?

0:12:130:12:15

If they are, then just use your appalling level of hygiene.

0:12:150:12:19

Ah! That is better!

0:12:220:12:24

I have found myself a cause to truly care about.

0:12:250:12:29

Animal rights. I love animals. Especially kittens.

0:12:290:12:32

Kittens are adorable!

0:12:320:12:35

I'm an animal righter.

0:12:350:12:36

If it is cruel to animals, then I am against it!

0:12:360:12:40

But Rebecca, you're eating a cheeseburger.

0:12:420:12:45

-You are eating meat.

-But I love cheeseburgers.

0:12:450:12:48

All the same.

0:12:480:12:50

You're right.

0:12:510:12:53

Of course.

0:12:530:12:55

I shall eat no more cheeseburgers.

0:12:550:12:58

Never again will I devour the cruel but very tasty, utterly delicious...

0:12:580:13:04

I'll find another cause to care about.

0:13:050:13:08

Cheeseburgers are simply too good!

0:13:080:13:12

Matty, could you offer me some advice?

0:13:130:13:16

There's a problem with my campaign.

0:13:160:13:18

Sure, I'll help if I can.

0:13:180:13:20

I found out yesterday that... hypno-water object

0:13:200:13:23

is also good for the environment.

0:13:230:13:25

Yeah, that's true.

0:13:250:13:26

There is so little time and I truly love that tree.

0:13:280:13:30

Hazel, what makes this tree so important?

0:13:300:13:33

It's just that it reminds me of a tree that my mother once planted.

0:13:330:13:37

Oh, that's so sweet!

0:13:370:13:40

Maybe if you could get some more pupils involved.

0:13:400:13:45

If you get enough people on your side,

0:13:450:13:47

you could even form a human barricade around the tree!

0:13:470:13:51

Show the headmaster the school cares more about the tree.

0:13:510:13:54

Except they do not. They do not seem to care at all.

0:13:540:13:57

Sophie has been asked by Headmaster Griffiths to talk to you today

0:13:570:14:01

about why she loves to read.

0:14:010:14:02

Whoop de doo!

0:14:020:14:04

I have written down a few things

0:14:040:14:06

that may make you feel more like reading.

0:14:060:14:09

For example, reading a passage from a well-respected novel

0:14:120:14:16

can be a very good way to impress a potential suitor.

0:14:160:14:19

Potential what?

0:14:190:14:21

I know some boys may be shocked if you do something inappropriate,

0:14:210:14:25

so stay away from the controversial yet marvellous Lord Byron.

0:14:250:14:29

Choose something gentle, like a William Wordsworth poem.

0:14:290:14:34

Are you honestly suggesting

0:14:340:14:35

we get a guy's attention by reading him poetry?

0:14:350:14:38

Of course. And reading aloud can be a wonderful party trick.

0:14:380:14:43

Say, for example, you are not musical,

0:14:430:14:45

yet you have been asked to perform at a social gathering.

0:14:450:14:48

Well, a literary recital is just perfect.

0:14:480:14:51

Can we watch the film now?

0:14:510:14:54

Just one more thing.

0:14:540:14:58

A book can take you anywhere.

0:14:580:15:00

Literally anywhere.

0:15:000:15:02

If you are stuck somewhere for a terribly long time,

0:15:020:15:05

then reading can make you feel

0:15:050:15:07

as though you have travelled the entire world.

0:15:070:15:09

Or if you're a normal person you can just take a plane.

0:15:090:15:12

THEY LAUGH

0:15:120:15:14

OK, play.

0:15:160:15:18

SHE MOUTHS

0:15:220:15:25

Oh, again.

0:15:250:15:26

-Too pretty.

-Rebecca, what exactly are you doing?

0:15:260:15:30

Well, I'm giving to the needy.

0:15:300:15:32

I'm going to give all the clothes that I no longer need

0:15:320:15:34

to the poor people in... Um...

0:15:340:15:37

Well, I don't know.

0:15:370:15:39

Wherever it is they need them, because I care about the poor.

0:15:390:15:42

Yet the only thing you have in here is one shoe.

0:15:420:15:46

Well, yes. As it turns out,

0:15:460:15:48

there are very few clothes that I no longer need.

0:15:480:15:50

Rebecca, you have a whole wardrobe of clothes you no longer need.

0:15:500:15:54

They're all 150 years out of date!

0:15:540:15:57

This is so difficult. I cannot find a cause I genuinely care about.

0:15:570:16:03

Do not worry, you will find something.

0:16:030:16:07

Perhaps, you just need a little help to truly care.

0:16:070:16:10

Sophie! That is it! They just need a little help to truly care.

0:16:110:16:15

A little nudge! That is it! Come, quickly!

0:16:150:16:18

I know what to do. I think we can save our tree.

0:16:180:16:21

-IN GHOSTLY VOICE:

-Save my tree, or you will be haunted.

0:16:240:16:28

Woo!

0:16:280:16:30

Woo!

0:16:310:16:34

(Save the peppercorn tree. You must save it.)

0:16:350:16:40

-SHOUTS:

-Save the peppercorn tree!

0:16:410:16:43

-What now?

-Clearly, you are going to have to find

0:16:440:16:47

a different approach to your problems.

0:16:470:16:49

Easy for you to say! It's not you that has to do it.

0:16:490:16:52

So, there I was, hanging with my ghost homies,

0:16:540:16:57

when all of a sudden my bleeper goes off

0:16:570:16:59

saying that you have been misusing your abilities.

0:16:590:17:02

-So now, you need to come with me.

-Um...

0:17:020:17:06

How have I been misusing my abilities?

0:17:060:17:08

Because you are not supposed to use your powers

0:17:080:17:11

to influence other people.

0:17:110:17:13

-Hasn't anyone ever told you that?!

-Um... No.

0:17:130:17:16

Oh, yes. That must have slipped my mind.

0:17:160:17:20

Whoopsie daisy. I'm sure it was on my to-do list,

0:17:200:17:23

but you should have known anyway, so to my office. Now.

0:17:230:17:29

Come on! Skedaddle.

0:17:290:17:31

Pretend that I don't have eternity.

0:17:310:17:34

I'm sorry, Agatha, but I did not know.

0:17:380:17:40

She makes an interesting point.

0:17:400:17:43

After all, what is knowledge, you know?

0:17:430:17:45

What does it truly mean to know anything?

0:17:450:17:47

She should know right from wrong.

0:17:470:17:49

Ah, but what is right and what is wrong?

0:17:490:17:52

Who is the arbiter of our moral compass?

0:17:520:17:55

Is that the inner self? Or society's constraints?

0:17:550:17:58

-Will you please shut up!

-Sorry, Agatha.

0:17:580:18:02

Think about it.

0:18:020:18:04

-Is it really OK to scare people into doing what you want?

-Of course not.

0:18:040:18:09

I just did not know what else to do.

0:18:090:18:11

Please, Agatha, will you help me?

0:18:110:18:13

I'm sorry, not this time.

0:18:130:18:15

You know how the ghost council are.

0:18:150:18:18

I'm waiting for them to text me.

0:18:180:18:21

I have to see what they decide about this whole situation.

0:18:210:18:25

I thought you may like some company.

0:18:280:18:31

Where is Rebecca?

0:18:310:18:33

Another make-up crisis perhaps?

0:18:330:18:35

Again, I do not know.

0:18:350:18:37

She hurried off saying she had something terribly important to do.

0:18:370:18:41

What will you do?

0:18:410:18:43

I wanted to form a barricade,

0:18:430:18:45

but there is just me and a barricade of one isn't very barricading.

0:18:450:18:50

A barricade of two may be slightly better?

0:18:500:18:53

Really? You would come?

0:18:530:18:55

And I'm sure Rebecca will come too and Matty and Jonathan.

0:18:550:18:59

-It may just work.

-And even if it doesn't, we have to try.

0:18:590:19:03

There is something I must try too.

0:19:030:19:05

-Oh!

-Come along.

0:19:050:19:07

Mrs Miller, I have been thinking and thinking

0:19:070:19:10

and I have decided that I'm going to start my own book club.

0:19:100:19:15

I realise I may well be the only member...

0:19:150:19:18

Oh, I understand, Sophie.

0:19:180:19:20

If you ever just want to have a chat with me about books,

0:19:200:19:22

you can always just stay after class.

0:19:220:19:25

Thank you.

0:19:250:19:26

Oh, yes, that's very sweet...

0:19:260:19:29

but you're kind of cold.

0:19:290:19:32

I'm too nervous to eat.

0:19:390:19:40

As am I.

0:19:400:19:42

We should simply head to the tree.

0:19:430:19:45

But Rebecca's not here.

0:19:450:19:48

Perhaps she will come later.

0:19:480:19:49

This actually isn't a bad barricade.

0:19:520:19:54

If they chop the tree down, we're done for, but...

0:19:540:19:57

-It'll be worth it.

-Yes.

0:19:570:19:59

-Mate, you just get started on this bit.

-Easy for you to say.

-Oh, it's...

0:19:590:20:03

Hazel Ainsworth, you are three demerits away from expulsion!

0:20:040:20:08

You should untie yourself.

0:20:080:20:09

You can't give demerits for fighting for a cause.

0:20:090:20:12

She is standing up for what she believes.

0:20:120:20:14

Explain exactly why you think

0:20:140:20:16

this tree is more important than the hydraulic water pump?

0:20:160:20:19

We and my mother...

0:20:190:20:22

What about your mother?

0:20:220:20:23

She... Nothing.

0:20:230:20:26

Well, seeing as that was such an unconvincing argument,

0:20:260:20:30

I think we're back to where we started.

0:20:300:20:32

Hazel, this is your final warning.

0:20:320:20:35

If you do not untie yourself in the next 60 seconds,

0:20:350:20:38

-I will pull you away by force and expel you.

-A-hem!

0:20:380:20:41

For your own safety, of course.

0:20:410:20:44

I think you should do what Miss Sinclair asks.

0:20:440:20:47

-How is it going?

-Aside from the fact I'm about to be expelled,

0:20:500:20:53

I would say it's going really well.

0:20:530:20:55

Not to worry, I can help.

0:20:550:20:57

Miss Sinclair, did you know

0:20:590:21:01

that this tree is protected by covenant on the school's leasehold?

0:21:010:21:05

The document the headmaster is reading explains

0:21:050:21:08

that if you were to cut down this tree,

0:21:080:21:10

the school would be obliged to leave school property immediately.

0:21:100:21:14

Tell me she's talking rubbish.

0:21:140:21:16

No, she's absolutely correct.

0:21:160:21:18

We would have been evicted, but Queen Victoria has saved our skins.

0:21:180:21:22

That was close. Good work, Rebecca.

0:21:220:21:25

Well done.

0:21:250:21:27

My tree is safe! My...

0:21:270:21:30

THEY GROAN

0:21:300:21:33

Rebecca, is something the matter?

0:21:370:21:39

Only you have been very quiet since it all happened.

0:21:390:21:42

Well, I am so pleased Hazel's tree is safe.

0:21:420:21:45

It's just, I still cannot find a cause to care about.

0:21:450:21:50

Rebecca, how long did you spend

0:21:500:21:52

searching through old documents in the library to find that covenant?

0:21:520:21:56

I have been searching for the last few days.

0:21:560:21:59

The idea came to me when Hazel first heard the news.

0:21:590:22:02

I did not want to mention it and get her hopes up

0:22:020:22:05

in case I was unsuccessful.

0:22:050:22:06

The covenant in the lease,

0:22:080:22:11

it was written by Mother

0:22:110:22:13

to protect the tree the two of you planted.

0:22:130:22:15

Rebecca, I think it is perfectly obvious what cause you care about.

0:22:160:22:20

It is?

0:22:200:22:22

Yes.

0:22:220:22:23

You care about us.

0:22:230:22:25

You are right! I do not need another cause - I care about you.

0:22:260:22:31

Oh! And boys. And looking pretty, of course.

0:22:340:22:38

THEY LAUGH

0:22:400:22:44

So, the ghost council finally texted

0:22:450:22:48

and e-mailed

0:22:480:22:50

and sent smoke signals.

0:22:500:22:52

They do get a little bit carried away sometimes.

0:22:520:22:55

They are not impressed

0:22:550:22:56

and they feel that some form of punishment is essential.

0:22:560:23:00

However, they...

0:23:000:23:02

liked your issues-based folk song.

0:23:020:23:06

They felt that the way you blended

0:23:060:23:08

some Bob Dylan with some Beatles was inspired.

0:23:080:23:12

I disagree, but there you go.

0:23:120:23:16

So, for your punishment, they would like you

0:23:160:23:20

to write them a song.

0:23:200:23:23

Oh, thank you, Agatha! Thank goodness!

0:23:230:23:26

What are you doing here?

0:23:300:23:32

-Actually, I'm here for my new book club.

-Welcome.

0:23:320:23:34

I thought we could start with some Plato.

0:23:340:23:37

I thought Kerouac.

0:23:370:23:39

No, let's start with Beowulf.

0:23:390:23:41

I am a fast reader, we may start with all of them.
