- Why doesn't Samuel trust the connection between the Golden Man and Cathy? How does this act as evidence for Cathy's superiority as Evil?
- Good ol' Liza. She hasn't even been to "the Sanchez place" and already she'll never smell anything but pigs. Wondrous how a person of conviction, with the Lord eternally at her side (whether He likes it or not), is always right, even when she's wrong.
- And I'm sure Liza would condemn gossip in all around her, but never be able to see it in herself, even if her distant judgments of Cathy aren't so far off the mark.
- I expect that Liza enjoys being miserable and wouldn't have it any other way, even if contentedness is knocking at her door.
- Yet despite his strange eccentricities, somehow she and Samuel make a beautiful--and beautifully balance--couple.
