Not ever. But Pete can't stay away from that place. He can't stay out of trouble even if you tie him in a chair. Marcus: For a while when you were thinking something, Pete, it came true or happened in one way or another. Are you still able to do that, and what is the best thing you ever made happen? Pete: Harriet Hadley's teaching me about how to handle that kind of stuff. I'm getting better. Like, last time I thought about ice cream I didn't get ten gallons all at once. I only got a cone for me and one for Weasel. Pretty cool, huh? But the best thing I ever made happen is still the Hadley Mansion.
I mean who do you know who can call up a great big house out of nowhere?
How does it feel to have other voices floating around in your thoughts? Pete: It takes some getting used to I can tell you that. I mean, sometimes I'm having this "conversation" with Harriet, and then I'll blurt out something to her, and Weasel will go all "What did you say? It's hard.

Sea Cutter: Book I: The Chronicles of Nathaniel Childe
Weasel: Have you ever been up to your neck in swamp water? I mean, there are serious snakes in that water, and snorkeling with alligators takes some getting used to. Of course, being arrested wasn't the best time of my life either, but the sheriff's not as scary as snakes and alligators. Do you have some new adventures coming up? Weasel: Adventures are Pete's department. I'm just looking for another interesting book to read. I've almost finished the one I couldn't get to while Pete was free all the time.
But he's always scheming about how to stir up things in Hadleyville, so once he's done with that special school at Harriet Hadley's place, I know I'm going to be busy figuring out how to get out of trouble. Pete: I'd be a G-normas guy with x-ray vision who could fly. Weasel: Shaking head. I guess I'd just be me, only with the power to hide from the G-normas flying guy with x-ray vision. Fairday, you see what kind of situation I'm in all the time, right?
If you were each granted 3 wishes, what would you wish for? Pete: Jumps to feet. I'd want a MegaPlex movie theater in downtown Hadleyville. And a pizza parlor that delivers. And then one of those great big swimming pools with a high dive. Fairday said 3 wishes. It's my turn. I'd want a bigger library for one thing. Pete groans and Weasel ignores him.

Then I'd ask for more of Aunt Lizzie's pot roast and a lock on my front door that Pete can't unlock. Pete: You'd miss the fun. I know it. Weasel: Not likely.
