Dermot stands near Rufus’ jail cell lost in thought for a moment.
Dermot: I can never remember the name of my office assistant!
Dermot: Isn’t it Basil?
Rufus: Huh, for sure it is one of those names with vowels and concordances around the vowels.
Dermot: Concordance around the vowels?
Rufus: Kevin, Basil, Jerry, Bill, you know.
Dermot: Do all of those have concordance?
Rufus: Jer-ry, Bil-ll, Ba-sil, Ke-vin.
Dermot: Oh, yes, I see, Bi-ll, I see, yes. Lots of concordance there.
Rufus: Concordance, vowel, concordance, vowel, and then another concordance at the end.
Dermot: I concord with you, Rufus.
Rufus: When I was a little boy, I thought it was bowel, not vowel. Haha!
Dermot: A bowel concordance; this explains a lot.
Rufus: I was so embarrassed when I learned the truth! It was years after my German nanny taught me the word, too. Years! But, how could I know?
Dermot: How could you?
Rufus: “Vonderful,” she would say, “Vonderful vee vee, Rufus.”
Dermot: “Vee vee?”
Rufus: Well, um, yes, you see, vee vee was–
Dermot: No; don’t tell me. I need to call him, whomever his name is, and ask him about the printer in the office.
Rufus: Call who?
Dermot: The Kevin-Basil person.
Rufus: Oh, the assistant. Nigel?
Dermot: Nigel! The administration supposedly sent over a new printer to the office.
Rufus: Subposebly they sent one, yeah.
Dermot: But did they? And is it new-new or just new to me? And, above all, does it work?
Rufus: Bictor? Is the office assistant’s name Bictor? Bictor was the name of my nanny’s son. He played with me a lot when I was little.
Dermot: Bictor? “Bictor played with me a lot when I was little.” “Bictor played with me a lot when I was little.”
Dermot stands lost in thought for a long moment.
