Vic is worried over an essay that he has to write. It has to be 3000 words long, and he’s afraid that he may go over, or end up with fewer words. Russel enters to try to take part in the troubles, but all he does is become an annoyance to Vic. The essay is on a simple enough topic, the History of Plant 14, the place where Vic works.
As vocal and prolific as he often is, Vic is just stumped with a case of writers block. Maybe a few poetic lines will be inspirational? Or maybe not. Sade and Russel continue to pitch ideas, as Vic writes them down and counts down the words.
- Vic mentions that Plant Number Fourteen is in the county of McClean, Illinois. Indeed, the city of Bloomington is in this county.
- It was in 1910 that Plant Fourteen began to become a reality.
- Edward Puttman is mentioned as a worker at Vic’s job who fell off of a chair and broke his leg.
