Montag wants a duplicate copy of the Bible.
"Professor Faber, I have a rather odd question to ask. How many copies of the Bible are left in this country?"
Montag showed her a book. "This is the Old and New Testament, and-"
"Don't start that again!"
"It might be the last copy in this part of the world."
"There's only one thing to do," he said. "Some time before tonight when I give the book to Beatty, I've got to have a duplicate made."
