“The Nose Knows”
Participants: Mary (Michael), Vicki (Lawrence), Ron (Olivia), Cathy (Shynla), and Gail (William).
Vic’s note: This transcript was done differently, as it was typed directly from the audio recording rather than watching the video and handwriting it first. Therefore, there will probably be less noticing and indication of visual information. Any feedback as to any differences noticed will be welcomed and appreciated.
Elias arrives at 7:05 PM. (Time was twenty seconds.)
ELIAS: Good evening. (Pause) This evening, I shall allow for your questions within your engagement of probabilities, and we shall then on to our game! (Pause)
VICKI: I’ve been thinking about your description of the message in consciousness, of the less separation between man and nature, and I don’t really understand, because when I listen to people talk about, for example, the fires, it seems like there is more separation. Presently, there is a battling between man and nature, and it just doesn’t really ... I don’t really understand.
ELIAS: Throughout our discussion of probabilities, I have been instructing you to be noticing, and also to be allowing a widening of your perception. In this, you present a prime example. Notice your own movement within probabilities, moving through belief systems. Notice your own individual actions. As you engage new, or what you perceive to be new perceptions, moving through belief systems, you engage what action? (Pause, staring at Vicki, who is clueless) Battling! I have expressed that your individual expressions and also your mass events mirror each other; therefore the action is the same. Within the initiation of the probabilities and the movement within consciousness into the area desired, you also, en masse, engage belief systems. Therefore, you display what you view initially to be “opposite of the end product,” in your terms. These are areas which are instructional for you to be noticing and widening your understanding of. You view, within your selectivity of attention, a probability being actualized and displaying an “instant” result. You do not allow for the understanding of all of the actions and probabilities that are simultaneously occurring, within a given desire. (Pause)
VICKI: Okay, I’ll think about that. (Pause)
RON: I’d like to know if Michael and I are on the right track, as far as our little pyramid visualization the other night.
ELIAS: (Smiling) I shall be acknowledging of this connection within understanding, although you do not quite understand what you understand, but you have begun. You have begun to view the multidimensionality of consciousness, and of yourselves. This allows you the opportunity to also be understanding of the idea of less or no separation within consciousness. I have expressed to you, the birth has occurred. The movement has been initiated. Now you begin to notice the movement that you engage. (Pause) Very good! (Pause)
I shall be acknowledging also to Olivia, within recognition and the allowance of energy exchange. Many times, as you have observed, within Michael’s stubbornness, he allows information from other sources, so to speak, more willingly. He will be accepting of information, to be helpful within movement, of other essences more readily than Elias, at times.
VICKI: So would this be part of the reason for his suggestion that we play with that darn board the other day? (Referring to the Ouija board, which we have never played with together because we view it lightly, and also because it just won’t work with Mary. It won’t even work for other people if she’s in the same house!)
ELIAS: We have been discussing probabilities. I have expressed that you view only one line of probabilities. You engage, automatically, many probabilities that you do not recognize, within many layers of consciousness. You may physically engage in an action and believe, within your thought process, that you engage this action for one reason; this being one actualization of one probability. Simultaneously, many probabilities are being actualized. You think in terms of probabilities being actualized simultaneously within only other dimensions. In actuality, you actualize many probabilities and set into motion many probabilities simultaneously, within this dimension and time period, within different layers of consciousness. You only do not realize what you are doing.
I have expressed many times, the desire is great. Michael is aware of this desire. He is unaware of how he actualizes many of his probabilities, as are you all unaware objectively, for you think selectively. (Pause) Your desires will be actualized. If you engage probabilities and you move to what you view to be the farthest point that you may actualize, you will creatively, within consciousness, seek out other probabilities to move through. What you view to be a “block point,” in actuality serves to be your motivation point; this being why I expressed to you of your structure and your blocks as not being blocks, for in actuality, they are elements of your structure. They are probabilities. They do not, in actuality, realistically, block you from “something,” although you perceive this to be the case. They serve as motivation for your creativity. (Pause) You become inventive if you believe yourself to be blocked. You allow a greater expression of creativity. (Pause)
CATHY: I can’t even formulate a question! It just seems like with all these probable selves and probabilities, how the hell do we create our own reality then, if we’re all connected? (Laughing)
ELIAS: (Smiling) This being why I have expressed to you that within this discussion of probabilities, there is an element that may be confusing, and what you view to be threatening to your personal identity. I express to you, these elements of information offered shall serve to be helpful in widening your perception. Presently, if you are experiencing confusion of self, do not concern yourself with probable selves; for be remembering, you are the center.
CATHY: Of the probable selves, with the line that goes through. It’s all connected up with everything else, right? (Laughing)
ELIAS: Correct! (Grinning)
CATHY: That’s what I thought you were going to say! Okay.
ELIAS: But you, as you perceive yourself to be, are the creating center. You create your reality; this probable self, Catherine. (Pause, smiling)
VICKI: I do have some questions from our new friends, if that’s acceptable to everybody. (Everybody agrees) From Linda, in response to your response to her original question: “When I’m working on a problem and trusting my inner voice to guide me through it, how do I know I’m going to reach my goal if I can’t figure out which voice is leading me in the quote “right” unquote direction? Right in the terms of the outcome I expect or want to have.”
ELIAS: As we have been discussing, there are many layers of consciousness and probabilities being engaged simultaneously. Therefore, what you perceive to be the right outcome, or what you wish to be the right outcome, is only one probability within one layer. My expression to this question shall be seeming to be a non-answer, although it is ultimately the answer; to be accepting of all of the probabilities, to be accepting of self within this trusting.
Many individuals express that they are trusting of their inner voice. Simultaneously, they are not accepting themselves, or their probabilities, or the actualization of their probabilities. If you are accepting of self, you shall not be incorporating an expectation of only one line of probabilities.
What you actualize presently is partially an influence of desire, mixed with a few cups of belief systems and three parts expectation, and a dash of wishing, baked for quite a while! (Affectionately, with a pinch of humor!) Then, you are expecting to view a rising of a nice fluffy probability, which looks quite tasty and appealing!
I express to you all that presently, you engage a movement within consciousness that you have chosen. Therefore, what you are “used to” is not always what you will actualize presently, for you are engaging belief systems and familiarity. You are beginning the allowance of subjective expression to bleed through into your objective expression. Therefore, you view a changing. In this, you experience confusion, for you experience yourselves not holding the ability, seemingly, any longer, to be “counting on” your old familiar inner voice; for your old familiar inner voice is not necessarily always your subjective voice. It is a softer, objective voice.
Acceptance is what you would term your starting point, as my dear friend has expressed already. You only do not understand quite how to be accepting, but you are learning. Incorporate your trustfulness that you are learning, which in turn, in your terms, will be reinforcing of your acceptance. Be remembering, acceptance does not incorporate expectation. If you are truly wishing, wishing, to be actualizing certain probabilities, you hold the creativity to actualize these singular probabilities.
You are inventive, creative beings. You will discover a method to actualize what you wish, but if your desire is engaged within a movement to be trusting and accepting of self, you do not always allow for only one line of probabilities. You allow for other probabilities to be actualized. In this, you may view that you surprise yourselves! In reality, you are allowing yourselves the opportunity to view more choices being actualized; but within this process, as you view it to be a process, you become confused, for you do not completely understand the process that you have engaged. Therefore, it is unfamiliar. In this, you ask yourself, “What may I expect? What will I create?” You will create what is the most efficient for your learning process.
VICKI: Are you sure? (Much laughter)
ELIAS: Quite! This is not to say that you always choose the most comfortable probability. This is also not to say that you always choose the most “wished for” probability. It is to say that you will actualize the probability that will be expressing your most efficiency, within the moment, for your learning and attention. Then, you move to your “next step,” so to speak, of interpreting what you have created, and in your method of thinking, why you have created; although this “why” is not completely of consequence, for you have already offered yourself the answer to the all-encompassing “Why?.” You actualize all of your probabilities for your noticing, for your learning, for your connecting, and for your experience.
VICKI: Okay. From Bruce: “Are Mary and Linda’s impressions, of their visit and dream respectively, indeed correct? Am I projecting on an unconscious level?”
ELIAS: I shall address to the second question first. There is no unconscious level! (Smiling) There are areas that you do not allow your objective expression to be noticing, but no area is “un” to you. In addressing the first question, I shall express affirmative. I shall also add that both of these individuals, as do you all, inquire with questions that if you were accepting and trusting, you may very obviously answer for yourselves.
VICKI: But we’re not, completely! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Quite! This being why you speak with me! (Chuckling)
VICKI: Okay. Finally, two comments from two people here. We’ve been discussing tolerance and intolerance, I have been, with our new friends. Martha is wondering what your views are on the subject of tolerating intolerance. She was quite honest about how she feels regarding outright cruelty and murder, expressing that she becomes very angry and can feel the hate in herself. She comments that she just can’t completely repress these feelings, but also can’t act them out. And Bruce’s comment is, just in a nutshell, how can we be tolerant of cruelty to humans?
ELIAS: Quite interesting that your focus this evening surrounds one subject matter, that being acceptance; acceptance of self, acceptance of belief systems. As you accept belief systems, not throw them out, but in an acceptance of belief systems, the natural by-product is tolerance, for you eliminate your attention on your base belief system of right and wrong. Therefore, you need not express judgments. If you are not viewing right and wrong, you have no reasoning for creating judgments. (Grinning widely, and you can hear the human sounds of not quite laughter, but of “confused chuckling”)
This also we have expressed within our discussion of probabilities. In your selectivity of attention, you view only certain probabilities within only certain limited time periods. In this, you do not offer yourselves all of your available information. Therefore, you see no benefit within certain actions. At other times, in your terms, you may not actually ever, in your perception, see the probabilities of benefiting, although you also do not view the entirety of the painting. You are unaware of the agreements and the probabilities and the actions and actualizations that other individuals choose. These are all choices. Within an acceptance of the idea that you create your reality, and also, as has been expressed to Kasha, all other individuals and consciousness creates their own reality, you may allow yourself to move into an area of accepting less right and wrong; therefore allowing yourself the ability to not be placing judgment. If you find that this is seemingly impossible for you to be experiencing, then you may be focusing upon your small sapling story, and not concerning yourself with other’s creation of their reality.
This is not to say that inaction, or non-expression, is an expression of essence, although this is dependent upon your desire within your individual, particular focus; for within your particular focus, you may choose inaction, to be perpetuating and aligning with established and accepted belief systems within your experience. If this be not your desire, or if you are moving through belief systems and rearranging your perception and allowing a widening of perception, then you may be engaging belief systems. As I have expressed, if you are not expressing, you are lending your consciousness, in agreement, to the accepted belief system. Therefore, within your physical everyday examples, if you are witnessing what you view to be a cruelty or hurtfulness to another consciousness, you may choose to be incorporating action, although be evaluating of the motivation of this action; for if you are expressing based upon connecting belief systems, you are perpetuating the existing action.
Do not think to yourselves that individuals that engage within what you view to be violent acts do not think in terms of right and wrong, for they do. They hold the same belief systems. They actualize action differently, but their belief systems are the same. Your intolerance and expression is the same, within an expressed action, as their action of what you view to be violence.
CATHY: Question. If you view this cruelty to another consciousness and you do not react, only you think it’s horrible and rotten in your belief systems, are you saying it’s okay if you do nothing, same as if you react?
ELIAS: If you are witnessing what you view to be a cruelty, a violence, and you do not respond purposefully, you are lending your consciousness to the perpetuation of the existing, accepted belief system.
CATHY: So the same as if you do react.
ELIAS: Incorrect. If you are responding within an expression of essence, you are not lending your consciousness to the existing belief system. If you are responding in like manner, you are essentially creating the same action as you would be creating if you were not responding actively at all. You place value judgments upon other individuals for their action. You place value judgments upon all that you view to be living things within their actions. Even within nature, or what you perceive to be nature, as separate from yourselves, you place value judgments upon natural actions. You accept, partially, certain actions, but you also “peoplize” them and place them into the category of violent acts, which you place a belief system of right and wrong upon. But you also do this selectively, do you not?
ELIAS: Very! You shall view a lioness attacking the young of an antelope and view a violent act, which you shall partially accept as the violence of nature, but you shall partially not accept as being unacceptable behavior for it is violent, and within your “peoplizing” of elements, this creates an adverse feeling within you. You do not view a giraffe to be maiming a tree! You place no judgment upon this.
VICKI: Okay. Physical example: If you see a mother causing extreme hurtfulness to her child, what would an expression of essence be?
ELIAS: An expression of essence would be to intercede without judgment, and within an expression of helpfulness.
VICKI: So within the concept of choices and agreements, you have drawn that situation to yourself.
VICKI: In giving yourself an opportunity to express from essence.
VICKI: If you can figure it out!
ELIAS: Yes. You also must be realizing that your expression may not be accepted within the reality that these other individuals are creating. In this, you have expressed. You have not lent yourself, within consciousness, to the action of hurtfulness. You have been expressing; and within the action of acceptance of each person’s creation of their own reality, you, within your expression of your own small sapling, will withdraw, in acceptance of their creation without value judgment.
VICKI: I think the value judgment is the really hard part.
ELIAS: (Smiling) For you hold very deep, base belief systems of right and wrong. (Intently) For you view that you would hold no control within your physical expression if you did not incorporate the ideas and the belief systems of right and wrong to gauge your actions; for you hold the duplicity of self, and you do not trust. These are the belief systems that you presently are moving through. Therefore, you present yourselves with these examples. (Pause)
We shall break, and we shall continue with your questions, and engage our game; and William shall engage not being such a little mouse this evening!
BREAK 8:02 PM.
ELIAS: We continue. (Grinning at Cathy and chuckling, as she seemed startled at his quick arrival) You may proceed with your questions.
RON: Okay, I have a really good one! (Laughter)
ELIAS: In contrast to a really bad one? (Grinning)
RON: Yeah! You said that in the shift, everyone will incorporate trauma. Does trauma have to be bad? Could ecstatic joyfulness be considered trauma?
ELIAS: Within your definition of trauma, you would not define this as ecstatic joy, although this would be a by-product of the action of the trauma; the trauma being initial, and the by-product of this being the joy. In this, there are variances of trauma, for each individual will experience and express this differently. Some may outwardly experience this, in what you view to be physical trauma that you may all witness. Others may experience inner trauma, being expressed in confusion. We would not be placing this trauma in the definition that you hold of negative; only to be either an expression of great confusion, or conflict.
RON: But we would consider that negative.
ELIAS: But there is no negative! (Playfully)
RON: I know! That’s why I’m wondering if ecstatic joyfulness could be trauma as well, because I was under the impression that trauma just means something extreme, an extreme reaction.
ELIAS: If this expression is what the individual perceives to be completely foreign and conflicting to what they are familiar with within their focus, yes, you may incorporate this expression also; but this would also be an expression of conflict!
RON: Well, I’m doing that then! (Laughter)
ELIAS: (Grinning) Good choice!
RON: Thank you!
ELIAS: Presently, within your choices of probabilities, each of you are already experiencing your trauma; this being an example to differentiate what you view to be sudden, impacting trauma, for you experience increments of trauma in moving through belief systems presently, although you do not experience one event of great traumatic proportion; this being what we express in the difference that each individual shall incorporate within the experience of trauma, as related to the shift; this being your choice, as with all things.
You may choose to be moving through belief systems and engaging the action of the event of your shift and allowing yourselves less trauma, or you may be choosing to engage a single action of great proportion, which may be expressed within what you physically view to be traumatic, or what you view to be confusion. Not all individuals shall experience what you think of as hurtfulness or distress. Some individuals shall experience great confusion within a lack of understanding of the event. Some may experience a mixture of joyfulness, related to presently held belief systems religiously that they view to be being actualized, but also simultaneously experiencing fearfulness. Therefore, yes, they may be experiencing joy, but within a lack of understanding of the event, they shall also experience conflict.
RON: So winning fifty million dollars in the lottery wouldn’t be considered trauma?
ELIAS: (Grinning) It is dependent upon your perception!
RON: Okay, that’s what I’m doing then! I can handle that trauma! (Laughter) Was the earthquake an expression of trauma associated with the shift?
ELIAS: No. These are, as we have expressed previously, natural occurrences of your expressions collectively. These are unexpressed emotional elements which seek expression physically within your physical element, for this is how you express within this dimension; physically. Therefore, you express all things physically. This extends collectively to your creations of natural occurrences.
We express to you that you are not separate from nature. This is an example to you of your non-separation from what you view to be nature or natural occurrences, just as your floods and tornadoes and hurricanes are also expressions of yourselves, en masse, collectively being expressed for your benefit.
RON: What about fires?
ELIAS: These also.
RON: But are they really expressions of nature if they were caused by man?
ELIAS: Which is nature! (Laughter) There is no separation!
VICKI: We go there so easily!
ELIAS: Automatically! (Pause)
GAIL: I have a question about probabilities, if I can figure out how to ask it. Because I have myself divided into three parts, and the youngest part experienced, say this one-and-a-half to two-year-old experienced an action, and in this present time I see the same experience happen to someone else, and I connect the two and resolve it for my present self and my child self, does it change the probabilities? Or can you do it yourself, even though past, present, and future is now?
ELIAS: Within your expression of your individual future, as you view it to be, yes.
GAIL: And I wanted to thank you for teaching me how to blow away pain with a dandelion.
ELIAS: Another “coincidental connection” with Michael! (Directing the word “connection” to Vicki, who has an issue with it)
VICKI: Okay. I’d be curious as to your comments on this nagging thought that I have that nobody is more or less “connected” than anybody else. They just express differently.
VICKI: This is correct?
VICKI: I’m not gonna think about that anymore. I’ll just accept it.
ELIAS: (Grinning) Shall we on to our game?
RON: Twylah, explorers, Lewis and Clark.
ELIAS: One point.
RON: Ayla, habits, overindulgence.
RON: Tomkin, sports, track.
RON: Twylah, architecture, Southwestern.
ELIAS: I shall express to Olivia to be specific.
RON: Okay. Specifically, Spanish.
ELIAS: Within the idea that you are attempting to express, I shall accept this.
RON: Otha, children’s stories, The Little Engine That Could.
ELIAS: Re-evaluate your colors!
RON: Okay. Red.
ELIAS: One point!
CATHY: Okay. Quotes, Ordin, “Seize the day.”
CATHY: Quotes, Ayla, “The opposite of fear is trust.”
ELIAS: Less probable. (Grinning)
CATHY: Okay, I’m done! (Laughter)
GAIL: Places, the city, Sumafi.
ELIAS: Very good! One point.
GAIL: Birds, Phoebe, Rose.
GAIL: Fabric, Sumari, tweed.
GAIL: With the last baby’s name, I believe we have all of them but one, I keep getting Lee, and either James or Robert or a combination of the three, and I don’t know which order they go in. Is that correct for the baby’s name?
ELIAS: Lee is a portion.
GAIL: James and Robert is not in it?
GAIL: (Sighing) Is it Switzerland?
ELIAS: Less probable.
GAIL: (Sighing) I’d like to try to complete the one on creation. I think it is the nature of the infinite universe.
ELIAS: Be connecting subjectively. (Smiling)
GAIL: Alright. (Sighing) Physical pleasures, touch, Sumafi.
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Investigate your colors.
GAIL: Alright. It’s probably Rose, then.
ELIAS: Investigate your colors!
GAIL: Alright, I will! (Laughter) Vegetable, cabbage, (pause) I’m gonna say Rose, but I think it’s something else. Go ahead! (Laughter)
ELIAS: And your impression, Michael? (Chuckling)
ELIAS: One point! (Laughter)
VICKI: Okay. Children’s stories, the Ilda family, Peter Pan.
ELIAS: One point. (Grinning at Ron)
VICKI: Sculptures, Sumari, The Venus De Milo.
ELIAS: Hua fua! (Laughter)
VICKI: Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, songs, the Ilda family.
ELIAS: Very heavy! Acceptable.
VICKI: Fables, The City Mouse And The Country Mouse, Milumet.
ELIAS: One point.
VICKI: For Michael; Source Events, the translation of black hole energy exchange to individual physical focus. This is a continuation, I believe, of William’s energy connection.
ELIAS: And I shall express, one point; as a by-product of the understanding acquired between Olivia and Michael as to your pyramid discussion. Very good.
RON: It’s actually a continuation of my question.
ELIAS: Very good connecting!
VICKI: Sculptures, Gramada, Pieta.
ELIAS: Pieta. (Correcting pronunciation) Acceptable.
VICKI: Essence family connections, artists, Gramada and Sumari with Picasso. Pissarro! Excuse me. Pissarro.
ELIAS: Considerable difference! One point.
VICKI: Aspect personalities, Sumari, Picasso.
ELIAS: One point. (Pause, looking at everybody) Very good! (Pause) Are you wishing of more questions this evening ... as you are not engaging your impulse game! (Laughter)
CATHY: I had one, but I forgot it!
ELIAS: Very good! (Laughter)
CATHY: Why is it that psychics can’t give readings to some people?
ELIAS: This, in actually, is an interesting question. In what you view to be a “psychic reader,” as you interpret this, we have explained that these individuals access information directly related to you, within your particular choice of your individual pool of probabilities and actualizations. You view this to be somewhat telepathic in action. I have expressed to you that they access a connection with you within energy, in information that you allow to be presented. At times, individuals may choose to hold to their individual energy field, which is that energy that you recognize as surrounding or encompassing your physical expression. In this, you deliver a message within consciousness. The message is a non-acceptance of movement into your field of probabilities. The message is projected as a feeling of intrusion. Within the acceptance of this message by the individual that you perceive to be the psychic, they respond and are non-intrusive. Therefore, their outward or objective response shall be “I seem to not hold the ability to be reading you.” They do not understand, objectively, the exchange that has occurred. Therefore, they translate into what they do accept and understand, within their own limitations. They do not attempt to evaluate the exchange. Therefore, they express only an inability to offer information. In actuality, an agreement has been accomplished.
At times, an individual feels, within themselves, a need to be holding to their individual privacy, as they view this and interpret this. Be understanding that each of you within physical focus accepts certain ideas of self. You hold the idea that you may incorporate privacy, in your definition. You hold the idea that you possess individual control, also in your definition. In this, you all collectively agree upon these belief systems. Therefore, within an expression of essence, you manifest, outwardly, acknowledgments of these belief systems. In actuality, as has been stated, there are no secrets. You are all open to each other. You are all connected, but you do not view this within your perception, within physical focus. You do manipulate energy to express your wishes in alignment with your feelings. These are connected with by other individuals, just as you may feel certain emotions and not physically, verbally be expressing to another individual of these feelings. Regardless of your communication verbally, the other individual will receive the energy that you emit through the expression of your feelings. They may not objectively interpret these feelings and this energy projection, but they will subjectively connect with this expression, and know. Therefore, the action is the same with this type of situation. You choose, within your feelings, to be not violated, in what you perceive to be a violation of your privacy, in a lack of understanding that there is no element unknown to all other essences. Within an action of respectfulness of this expression, there is an automatic response subjectively. Therefore, the psychic withdraws.
CATHY: So even though the person objectively thinks they’re going there to be read, their subconscious is saying, “Not this time, not right at this moment.”
ELIAS: In your terms, yes.
CATHY: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
GAIL: I have a question. A friend of mine and I were talking, and she was describing an incident that happened to her when she was a child and she couldn’t remember what happened to her, and in her describing what happened to her sister at the same time, I picked up on what happened to her. So was she allowing me to view what happened to her?
ELIAS: This would be a similar type of action as this previous question. Yes. An individual must be allowing for your objective knowing.
GAIL: So she wanted me to tell her, ultimately, what I saw.
ELIAS: Not necessarily.
GAIL: Oh, okay. But if she allowed it to be there for me to see ...
ELIAS: This is not necessarily always an action in expectation of verbal feedback, in the respect of explaining the action to the individual which is projecting the image to you. It is an allowance for your understanding.
GAIL: So it’s always important to ask the person if they want to hear what I saw?
ELIAS: Within an expression of essence and non-intrusiveness, yes; for as we speak of probabilities, you do not always understand what you view. All probabilities hold many more actions, and what you would perceive to be ramifications, than the limited selective elements that you perceive; this being why you experiment presently, with your noticing and your connecting, to allow yourselves information, differentiation, and understanding of what you perceive, and an allowance to be perceiving more. (Pause)
VICKI: Well, I have something. I would like to verbalize the existence of “The Adventure Tours” in the new city.
ELIAS: Very good. (Pause) Are you wishing of more questions this evening? (Pause) Very well. I shall engage with you soon, and lovingly bid you au revoir.
Elias departs at 9:19 PM., and pops back in at 9:25 PM.
As usual, the pop-in begins mid-sentence.
ELIAS: ... being of connection! (Laughter) Completely physically focused, in your terms. The connection recognized, of Michael and William, is only in a physical expression of the ball, the object upon the nose! (We all crack up)
RON: I knew that!
GAIL: You did? Why didn’t you say something?
RON: I just figured everybody figured it out!
VICKI: I didn’t notice!
ELIAS: An Elias joke; noticing! Adieu! (He leaves ‘em laughing!)
Elias departs at 9:26 PM.
Vic’s note: In explanation, Gail had been asking us if we knew why Elias referred to her as Michael. (See page 12) We were seriously exploring the various reasons when Elias popped in. She had been speaking to him holding her necklace up on her nose, which is something that Mary does whenever she’s trying to concentrate. This may not seem very funny to those of you who have never seen Mary with her necklace on her nose, but we split a gut! One of those “You had to be there” things!
