"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America is ruled by it like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh, people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come." -- Terence Mann, Field of Dreams

Nora: They are. They are mice. They were on sale. And seemed whimsical at the time.
Constituent C: They are whimsical.
Constituent D: I think I see their noses.
