Sam states that he feels like Talbot is reading his mind. Sam goes on to add that Talbot found the coordinates that he had written down, and that he revealed to Talbot that he got them from the Maxwell Group, and that Talbot just smiled and said that he doesn't know who he's dealing with. Sam states that he doesn't know who the Maxwell Group is and why they're contacting him; he mentions the latest e-mail sent him with a message saying "Love you madly", which is a phrase that he and Sonya used to say all the time. He begins to wonder if they're doing it to remind him of her, to which he says he doesn't need any help, as she is all he thinks of. Sam then becomes determined to find the Black Rock as it may get him what he wants.
I cannot pin Talbot down. One minute I'm way ahead of the guy, and the next it's like he's reading my mind. I checked out those coordinates and sure enough they're within the search grid. But then Talbot found the piece of paper that I'd written on and then he wanted to know where I got them. I told him, The Maxwell Group. He just smiled. He said you don't know what you're dealing with. Well, he's got that right, I have absolutely no idea. I don't know who this Maxwell Group is. I don't know what they do, why they do it and who they do it to. Oh, and their last email; you see, now they're just toying with me. This time they used a different code, and when you decipher it, it says "Love you madly". Sonya and I would say that all the time. Why send it? Is it supposed to help? Make me feel better? Of course not, it's supposed to mess with my head. I dunno, I dunno. Maybe it's supposed to spur me on, make me remember Sonya. Well thank you very much, but I don't need any help. She's all that I think about. In a couple of days it'll be our eighth anniversary. So, I know it's crazy, I know I can't trust these people, but if they want me to find Black Rock, then that's what I'm gonna do. I have to get to those coordinates. And if I do, maybe they'll get me what I what.
