It's really a pleasure for me and I hope I'll make it a pleasure for you too. Tell me where were you born and when? Do you remember? You wouldn't remember being born.

Frank: No I don't.

Bill: You told me over lunch. Where are you from?

Frank: Um.

Bill: No? Nothing at all?

Frank: Nope.

Bill: Is your earliest memory here at Selinsgrove?

Frank: Yep.

Bill: Can you tell me what it is? What do you remember... the first thing you remember about Selinsgrove?

Frank: All the other buildings.

Bill: The buildings?

Frank: Yeah.

Bill: And how old were you when you came here?

Frank: 11.

Bill: 11? So you were just a boy.

Frank: Yep.

Bill: And what happened the day you came here? Do you remember that? The very first day that you came to Selinsgrove? Were you happy about it?
