  • "Have I ever lied to you?"

  • "I wish I could say no, but I'm not sure."

  • "How can you say that?"

  • "Easily. You parse words. You will give me important information but only if I ask the right questions. You leave out items. You may not lie, but you deceive. I don't have time for evasions."

  • "But I'm much more cooperative than Carol."

  • "You are more pleasant. Carol is direct and she can be tough to deal with, but she doesn't play games. I know where she stands. In fact, she is more cooperative than you are because I never have to worry about her commitments. When she says 'Yes,' she doesn't mean 'Perhaps' or 'No.'"

  • "I think you are being unfair."

  • "Do you really? That's odd. Even now I'm not sure if I should believe you."
