EXTRACT: Well, you would have thought she'd won the lottery, the change that come over her. She starts singing while she does the housework, she goes for walks, all sorts of things. And then one day, about two months later, I come into the house to turn the radio down, loud enough to wake the dead she used to play it, and what do I see? Cath, lying on the floor with one leg on a chair and a light bulb in her hand, and making this funny little noise. She'd been trying to change a blown bulb the silly bitch.

EXTRACT: Bloody lot of stuff out here in this lake. All sorts of things. Things you wouldn't believe. Remember those kids that went under, the Outward Bound kids? They never found them you know. Ten of them. Kids in canoes. They shouldn't have been on the lake, not at that time of the year. It gets pretty rough out here at times, rougher than people imagine. City people. Ha. They come up here, thinking that they know everything, and they know nothing. They think just because it's inland there isn't anything to worry about. But there is you know, there is.

EXTRACT: The morning wind'll be here soon. Regular as clockwork, just after Sun-up. Happens all of a sudden, when the Sun rises above that peak down there. Floods the place with light and then the wind comes down the valley. You can see it coming towards you. The water changing colour as it ripples up, a dark line moving towards you, spread out right across the lake. She'll see us right, that wind. She'll take us right into shore.
