[Clarisse] That? That's a rocking chair. People used to sit outside their houses on warm evenings and rock backwards and forwards.

[Montag] Oh, really?

[Clarisse] Talking to anyone passing by. Just talking. We'll have to go away from here. I know a place. My uncle told me what to do if ever he was --

If ever he was taken. You follow the river upstream 'til you come to the old steam railway line. Then you go on and you go on until you get to where the Book people live.

[Montag] The good people?

[Clarisse] No, Book. The Book people. You've not heard of them?

[Montag] No.

[Clarisse] People who vanished. Some were arrested and managed to escape. Others were released. Some didn't wait to be arrested. They just hid themselves away. Up in the farm country; the woods and the hills. They live there in little groups. And the law can't touch them. They live quite peaceably and do nothing that's forbidden. Though, if they came into the city, they might not last long.

[Montag] But how can you call them Book people if they don't do anything against the law?
