As Vic reads through a lodge catalog, Russel and Sade enter. Russel is fascinated by the idea of the telescope that Vic is considering, but the storm is about to blow in. Sade is immediately skeptical of the waste of good money to support the lodge, and the things they push in the pages of the catalog. Will Russel’s input on the merits of learning astronomy be enough to sell Sade on the telescope?
Can Vic defend his position by pulling out the lodge manuals to quote from the pages? The Exalted Big Dipper ought to know something about the stars, shouldn’t he? Sade may not be the smartest person when it comes to math, but she can’t let any more money be spent above the regalia and other lodge trinkets that Vic has already filled her house with.
When she swipes Vic’s catalog, and refuses to give it back, he has to resort to quoting Latin at her.
