|NOBODY: "I think that leaving ASAP is even more urgent now than ever. If the guards are maintaining random patrols of the DZ, when they hardly ever came down before, then we can possibly expect the new warden to pull something like early block renewel, especially on people like myself. She is asserting her control too quickly and too damned efficiently. I told you that she is one sharp cookie. I bet she's already figured out that the closer inmates come to their block renewel date, the more desperate they become to get out. Now, that we are still a couple of months out, is the time to move. Otherwise we can expect to end up here another year, at the least.|
NODOBY: And don't assume that she hasn't been studying the dynamics of our group. She was talking to me about some sort of special group for the science types in the inmate population, which means that she has been going over our files very carefully. She probably has a really good idea, or soon will, of which of us to pull early for renewel to block any possible plans."
