Hyacinth (thinking): If I can’t cross the street, I’ll ping him from here.
Hyacinth: Uncle Thorn?
Thorn: Hi there, Hyacinth. What’s up? Are you going to tell me I’m a vampire apologist for doing my job at a party where they’ll be in attendance?
Hyacinth: No! That’s not it! . . . Although they are a privileged economic overclass that Sønheim needs to regulate more closely.
Thorn: They already put in a bunch of regulations after the immortals nearly destroyed their economy . . .
Hyacinth: And now those same immortals are trying to call it “the undeath tax” and get it repealed! Literally, the exact same immortals!
