    (On the train, Blake explains why he is traveling)
    Blake:"Well, I received a letter from the people at Dickinson's Metal Works assuring me of a job."
    Fireman:"Is that so?"
    Blake:"Yes. I'm an accountant."
    Fireman:"I wouldn't know because I don't read, but I'll tell you one thing for sure: I wouldn't trust no words written down on no piece of paper especially from no Dickinson out in the town of Machine. You're just as likely to find your own grave."

    Nobody:"I will take you to the bridge made of waters-- the mirror. Then you will be taken up to the next level of the world, the place where William Blake is from, where his spirit belongs. I must make sure that you pass back through the mirror at the place where the sea meets the sky."
