Charles: Are the children asleep?
Caroline: All but Laura. How much longer, Charles?
Charles: I don't know.
Caroline: We crossed into Kansas days ago. What are you looking for?
Charles: I'll know it when I see it.
Caroline: But the children are tired, and the life seems to have gone out of all of us.
Charles: It'll pass, Caroline. We had no future where we were. It was a hand-to-mouth existence at best. I want more than that for you and the children.
