Does not have a job
Does not have a place to stay
Has plenty of money
Looks for entertainment
He sees a dachshund lying in front of the fireplace
He imagines they serve watery cabbage
He sees the landlady drinking a cup of tea
He doesn't see a greedy landlady
He is transfixed by the sign that says "Bed and Breakfast"
The landlady opens the door and invites him in
A passerby tells him the Bell and Dragon isn't very nice
He is too tired to keep walking
There is only one room available
Of the war
She is very particular and choosy
She can't stand too much commotion
Slightly dotty and off her rocker
Lots of fun
Old and feeble
He knows each of the previous guests
All the the names on the guest list are men
He is sure he has read the names in the newspaper
He thinks that the guests were famous politicians
By asking Billy about his job
By pointing out her stuffed animals
By flirting with Billy
By serving him tea with milk and sugar
The suspense in a story
Giving away a story's ending
Clues that hint at what happened before the story began
Clues that hint at what will happen later in the story
"The air was deadly cold and the wind was like a flat blade of ice..."
"There were no shops on this wide street that he was walking along"
"Each word [on the sign] was like a large black eye staring at him through the glass"
"There wasn't a blemish on [Mulholland's] body...His skin was like a baby's
Gray and foggy
Very hot and humid
Warm and sunny
Feels a flicker of hope but remains silent
Expresses strong disapproval
Is so stunned that he leaves the village
Old Man Warner
Gets a sum of money
Is awarded a new house
"I will get my revenge"
"I always knew it would be me"
"It isn't fair, it isn't right"
The oldest member of the community
The male heads of households
The boys who have just turned sixteen
The breadwinner of each family
