Sasha: (sees Melanie reading a book) Melanie? Are you well?
Melanie: (still reading) Yes.
Ginny: She fell behind in her summer reading list for school.
Melanie: And the books aren't helping. I'm halfway through this thing, and the stupid whale hasn't even shown up yet.
Sasha: There's no whale in the Great Gatsby.
Melanie: Are you joking? Where the hell is this stinker going if there's no whale?
Sasha: Many's a night F. Scott pondered that very same question.
