"Bond had been instructed to make contact and he had arranged to do so, that afternoon at three o'clock, outside (the rendezvous had seemed time appropriate to Bond) the Reptile House at the Central Park Zoo"
"After the scrambled eggs in the Edwardian Room, everything went hopelessly wrong and, instead of the dream programme, there had to be urgent and embarrassing telephone calls with London head- quarters and, and then only by the greatest of good luck, un untidy meeting at midnight beside the skating rink at Rockefeller Center with tears and threats of suicide from English girl. and it was all New York City's fault ! One can hardly credit the deficiency, but there is no Reptile House at the Central Park Zoo."
