Jack：Are turtles real?
Joey：Yeah. They're totally real. I had a turtle as a pet.
Jack：Crocodiles and sharks?
Joey：Yeah, they're all real.
Joey：Sort of. So, these are real people, but they're playing dress-up. They're pretending that they're people from hundreds of years ago.
Joey：You're getting it.
Jack：When Old Nick comes back, I'm gonna kick him in the butt.
Joey：Let me tell you something. You know, one time, I tried to kick Old Nick in the butt. I hid behind the door, and I was holding the lid from the toilet tank. There used to be a lid on it. It was the heaviest thing in Room. When he came in, I smashed it on his head, but I messed up. He shoved the door closed, and he grabbed me by the wrist. That's why it's sore now.
Jack：We could wait 'til he's asleep and kill him dead.
Joey：Yeah, we could, but... then what? We'd run out of food and we don't know the code to the door.
Jack：Hey, the Grandma and the Grandpa could come.
Joey：Jack, they don't know where we are. Room's not on any map. Jack, listen to me. Now, we've got a chance. We've nearly missed it, but we've got our chance. So you're gonna help me. You're gonna help me trick Old Nick.
Jack：I don't get it.
Joey：I'm going to make your face so hot, that Old Nick will have to take you to the hospital in his truck, and then when you get there, you're gonna say to the doctors, "Help! Police!"
Jack：Well, maybe next year when I'm six.
Joey：Tonight. It has to be tonight, Jack. We'll tell Old Nick that because of the power cut, you got so cold, that you got a fever.
Joey：No. I'm your Ma, so, sometimes, I have to pick for the both of us.
Joey：It's okay. It's okay. You've got to stay floppy. Okay? Stay floppy, and you're not going to move or say a word. You're too weak, okay?
Jack：Ew, what are you doing? What are you doing?
Joey：Sorry. I've just got to make you smell sick. Good. That's good. Show me how... Show you me how you're gonna pull the note out of your pocket. Show me the note. Come on. When you're at the hospital... Show me. What's this? What's that? Oh. You see? You've got a bit of me all the time. Okay. Put it back in your pocket. Okay, good. Okay. And you've got your strong, too. Okay?
Jack：I'm scared. I know. Come on.
