Dans la scène qui suit, je souligne les parties ignorées, la plus importante étant l'allusion au passé de Jupiter/Hannibal:
The Guard scratched his head uncertainly. Jupiter lowered the window on his side and leaned out.
"My good man," he said, and Pete almost jumped, because Jupe was speaking in a rich, English accent he had never used before but must have practised in secret. "My good man, what seems to be the delay?"
"Gleeps!" Pete whispered to himself. He knew that Jupe had been an actor in television when he was just a tiny kid, and he had a real talent for impersonations, but Pete had never seen him do this one before.
By puffing out his cheeks and lips a bit and looking down his nose, Jupe had turned into a dead ringer for Alfred Hitchcock himself! A rather impertinent young Alfred Hitchcock, of course, but nobody could miss the resemblance."
