A memory the Loser has is of seeing a girl, older, with short hair, walking toward the Loser to talk to his oldest brother, who was 14. The girl is singing the song Reach Out of the Darkness, by Friend & Lover. "I think it's so groovy now, that people are trying to get together, think it's wonderful to know that people are finally getting together." The song was current then, meaning that the year was 1968. The Loser never spoke to the girl and he misheard the song and for decades would think it's, "It's the one who buys the house, where people are finally getting together," which of course makes no sense.
