Kale (thinking): The rest was obviously a cover story, so I hope they haven’t changed it —
Kale: They work at a museum. Met their husband on the job. Have a sister who’s a serious overachiever.
Thorn (thinking): Huh. I know part of that was right, and the rest sounds . . . plausible. Am I misreading this?
Thorn: Listen, I don’t want to interrupt, but can you do me a favor?
Could you and Dex step back from each other for a minute? Just to arm’s length.
Kale: That’s really not necessary . . .
Thorn: Humor me.
