One might suspect that being one of the most impressive dwellings in the United States, housing one of the most prominent figures in the world would be constantly fascinating, a never-ending cycle of mystery and intrigue, wrapped in a shadow of suspicion, with an overlay of sex.

But in the end, it comes down to what most bureaucracies do -- paperwork. Or computerwork, as the case may be, but the numbers and letters scanning by are no less tiring to George for being digital. In between security checks, he decides that he needs something to stay awake, and dials out a now-familiar extension.

"Hello, George."

It's a pretty safe time of day for George to be calling, and any work of SARAH's own is put to a rather screeching halt.

"How is life in Washington?"

"I believe that Doctor Fargo is getting a new office."

This sounds to be very exciting, apparently. There's no reason why a project manager like Dr. Fargo shouldn't have one.

"Do you do anything because you choose to?"

"What do you do in your spare time?"

It's hard to ask what he does for 'fun'.

"Sheriff Carter loves baseball. I record all the Indiana games for him."

Offered as if that were a closer connection between SARAH herself and George, rather than her resident.

"Do you read at all?"

"That is true. Your server space must be astronomical."

"...Now that you ask? Not really." In a lighter tone, "I like music. Duke Ellington."

SARAH can't laugh.

Literally. But also wouldn't.

"Benny Goodman is so old-school.

"I need to stop listening to Zoe."

"Akin to 'old fashioned', and an attempt at a joke."

"I like to watch the Travel Channel, too. To see what other places are like."

"I think the beaches. I don't have a favorite one. With me being located in the woods, it would be a change of scenery."

"You actually have paint. My external structure is steel and cement."

"Also...structural integrity.

"And things."

"Yes, of course."

Before the connection gets severed: "There is a documentary about you on the History Channel this evening. Will any of it be accurate?"

The connection shuts down.

SARAH turns on the Travel Channel while setting up a DVR session for the History Channel.

It will be educational.
