- Hippy:Tell me something, Lieutenant. Just tell me where the gold is.

“How could something occur to him that had never been in his mind before? It had to have been there before—otherwise, it wouldn’t have popped up—but it must have been hiding someplace. Where was that someplace in the mind where all that stuff hid? Was that what people meant when they said ‘the mind of God’? But then, that meant God’s mind was inside him someplace—and [he] got a little scared at where his mind was taking him.”
