Andres: (looking at books on the weird shelf) "What's all this stuff down here? ... Oh, things that are too tall... What's in this cabinet?" (opens cabinet) "Paperbacks! No! Now my alphabetizing job is ruined!"

We comment on the books; where else they might be stored, how very many other hidden deposits of books there are around the house, that sort of thing. I point out that this would be a simpler set of problems if we got rid of some of the books.

Andres: (shocked) "But then how would we insulate our house?"
