Dr. Dan Maynard:
Why don't they lock you up with the rest of us? What have you got, a pipeline direct to the big brass?

Rita King:
Why should they lock me up with a group of people who have been fools enough to let themselves get trapped in China? They had plenty of time to get out. I've always lived at this hotel. It's comfortable. I like comfort. Besides, I'm not a system of the western nations. I was born in Tangiers. And I am a woman of all countries. With no politics.

Dr. Dan Maynard:
No politics?

Rita King:
That's right. I'm not on anybody's team. I'm strictly on my own.

Dr. Dan Maynard:
Are you happy that way?

Rita King:
What difference does it make?

Dr. Dan Maynard:
I don't think you are. I can see in that.

Rita King:
What else can you see?

Dr. Dan Maynard:
I'm not sure. But I think there might be an old dream there.

Rita King:
But it's dying out, is that it?

Dr. Dan Maynard:
It does for all of us.
