TOMMY: Chrissie and Rod are pretty obsessed with this rumour, aren’t they?

I was thinking that if this rumour was true, it might explain quite a lot. Well – the Gallery for instance.  We never got to the bottom of it, what the Gallery was for.

Pictures, poetry, sculptures. It tells you something about yourself.  That’s the point about art, isn’t it?  It says what’s inside you.

 Your soul. (beat) So suppose that the rumour is true.  A special arrangement has been made for Hailsham students. If they’re in love.  There would have to be a way to judge if couples are telling the truth, and not just lying to put off their donations.

Well that’s what the Gallery would be for.  In the Gallery, they can find out everything about us that they need to know. So if we say we’re in love, they can look into our souls, and they’ll know if it’s real love, or just a lie.
