    • Krovitch: What are you up to? John Fabian: I am helpless. Oh, I know what you think. You think that she's here in my throat. But no she's not. She's somewhere else. (points to his head) Maybe here. (gestures to his heart) Certainly here. Krovitch: She is not there. John Fabian: No. She hides herself so easily. She waits and watches me. She tells me what to do. I do it. She speaks when I cannot, she's good when I am evil. She is open when I'm closed. She's all around and all about. Sometimes she builds a wall and hides herself and doesn't say a word to me. But sometimes, like tonight, she speaks.
