Subject:        Dicky number too

"[...]  Last year we discussed the significance of the number "three,"
....says she.

>"I waited ages for a devil and three came along at once." , says I.

What did I tell you? [...] says she.

Well, this was a glance at the common saying "You wait AGES for bus and
then three come at once" but the Wilderness episode context seemed
appropriate with the judean connection of the original phrase. (Part of
the joke is that my local bus route is number 6.  However, I didn't want
to attract N. E . More complaints about the export of arcane eastern
knowledge to the west.)
