Larissa tells Jonas about the event earlier in the morning when they celebrated Roberto's release and told his whole life's story. Unlike Edna, who had been a Birthmother before working in Food Production and who had never had a family unit, Roberto had lived a very interesting life as an Instructor of Elevens and as a member of the Planning Committee. Larissa explains that a celebration of release entails the telling of his life, a toast, the chanting of the anthem, his good-bye speech, and a few more speeches. Afterward, the excited Roberto bowed and walked into the Releasing Room. No one but the committee knows what occurs in the Releasing Room, and children are not allowed to attend.
