“I don’t have to put up with this,” Greg said. “Why should I tolerate this abuse?”

Brigid just smiled. “You need me to talk to,” she said. “I’m the only one who understands you, and you know it.”

“Of course it is! Who else are you going to find who knows what you’re talking about when you say, ‘Godfrey loves me, he put me in the shower?’ That’s not a phrase that’s meaningful in everyday use. Whereas I know not only who said it, and when, but why — and why Godfrey put them in the shower to begin with.”

He stopped and thought about it; she had something of a point, there. You just don’t find specialized knowledge like that without a prolonged search.
