|“||We're sick and tired of your nonsense, Young Rölf. If you really don't care if the zombies eat you, then go make your snowman. By Apollo's fire, I wash my hands of this disobedient boy. He will meet his Maker by early evening. Come, my fellow townsfolk, let us hide behind our sturdy oak barrier. No zombies will get in to eat us, I promise you.||”|
They tell the townsfolk to hide behind a sturdy oak barrier, and argue with Young Rölf and Gerta when they choose not to. They do not seem to care about Young Rölf at all, telling him that "If you really don't care if the zombies eat you, then go make your snowman." They also seem to disregard common sense, telling all the villagers that the wall will keep out the zombies, although Gerta later says that "they already ate through one wall of sturdy oak."
