- let me guess. you're from texas or utah, someplace dried-out and barren, right? i heard about water witching before, but but it doesn't make sense. i mean, it's just an ordinary branch.
- it's a dowsing rod.
- ow!
- and i don't like being stalked, not by psycho nerds or their cats!
- he's not really my cat. he's kind of feral. you know, wild. of course, i do feed him every night, and sometimes he'll come to my window and bring me little dead things.
- look, i'm from pontiac.
- huh?
- michigan. and if i'm a water witch, then where's the secret well?
- you stomp too hard and you'll fall in it.
- oh!

- 哈?
- 密 歇根的啦。如果我真是探水女巫的话,秘密水井又在哪儿咧?
- 跺脚太猛了,你会掉下去的。
- 哦。
