Faber believed Montag was dead because the audio-capsule stopped working.

Montag said, "I've been a fool all down the line. I can't stay long. I'm on my way God knows where."

"At least you were a fool about the right things," said Faber. "I thought you were dead. The audio-capsule I gave you--"


"I heard the captain talking to you and suddenly there was nothing. I almost came out looking for you."
