Arlo: Did you know the key to the Bastille is at Mount Vernon? 
Arlo: The Marques De Lafayette sent it as a token of esteem to President George Washington when the Bastille was demolished in 1789.
Arlo: Made of cast iron and weighing more than a pound, Washington hung it in his central hallway, a place of honor. 
Arlo: Not much remains of the prison in Paris today*, but the key can still be seen at Mount Vernon. 
*Square Henri Galli
Arlo: We should have a cookout tonight, in honor of Bastille Day!
Janis: I wondered where this was leading.
