    Caramon! What did they do? Was… was it the rack? The Wheel, maybe? Thumbscrews? What? What did you say? Cali – cali – what? I didn’t catch that. I never heard of a torture called cali-something. I wonder what it could be. Cali – cali – calisthenics! Calisthenics? That’s not torture! That’s exercises, you big baby! Do you mean I’ve been waiting here, worried sick, imagining all sorts of horrible things, and you’ve been out doing exercises!
