Scan across the table, set with random cutlerly, glasses, plates, etc, and over to the buffet of food. First across the alcohols. Rum (apple juice), Wine (grape juice), Vodka (water), Tea, and Punch are in abundance. The food is old and cheap – black bread, Kut’ya (cran-apple mixture), blinis (pancakes), grits, and jellied meat (Spam? Orange chicken?).

Did I ever tell you about Karl from the pharmacy? he was an acquaintance of mine and had been taking a cab somewhere one nigh. The cab man tried to kill him and Karl begged him very very much not to kill him, and cried and begged with folded hands, and was so very very frightened that his fear broke his heart.

Supply clerk
Pe-e-ermit me to inquire what you are getting at, ma'am. That is to say, on whose noble account... you were so good just now as to... But oh, never mind! It's just nonsense. A widow! A widow woman! I forgive her... Passe!

Yes, ma'am, much was the tugging of the locks, much was the tugging thereof.

Katerina
I expect you're like all the rest, and think I was too strict with him. But you know, it's not true! He respected me, he respected me very, very much! The man had a good kind soul! And how sorry I used to feel for him sometimes! He used to sit looking at me from a corner, and I'd feel so sorry for him, I'd want to put my arms round him but then I'd think to myself: 'If you do that, he'll go and get drunk again,' and it was only by being strict that I could do anything to restrain him.

Katerina
I suppose it would be odd for a man as respected and of such social standing as Pyotr Petrovich to fall in with such unusual company, in spit of all his devotion to my family and his earlier friendship with my father. That is why I am particularly grateful to you Rodion Romanovich, for not having shunned my hospitality, even in surroundings such as these. However I am certain it was only your special friendship with my poor deceased husband that prompted you to keep your word.

Sonya
(explains why she's late. Honestly I have no idea what to type here since the book doesn't exactly say, and I'm tired. So Sarah... be creative.)

Katerina (CONT'D)
You see, I gave her the most subtle task, one might say, of inviting the lady and her daughter – you know who I’m talking about don’t you? Well, she needed to do it in the most delicate manner possible, to employ all her tact and skill, but she went about it in such a way that that country goosecap, that over weening frump, that worthless provincial slathern just because she’s the wodow of some major or other and has come to plead for a pension and wear out her skirt-hems on the doorsteps of the government offices, because at fifty-five she dies her hair with antimony and uses powder and roughe… that even a frump like that did not see fit to come – not only that, but she didn’t even sent her excuses for not attending, as the most ordinary rules of politeness demand! Also I can’t understand why Pytor Petrovich hasn’t come either! And where’s Sonya? Where’s she got to?
