Christopher has fallen asleep and when he wakes he sees that Toby is gone from his pocket. He sees him down by the train tracks. Christopher goes down to retrieve him, oblivious to the oncoming train. A man snatches Christopher from the tracks right before a train would have killed him. Christopher, instead of being grateful, screams at the man. He did touch him after all...and we know that's a no-no. Then a woman asks if he needs help and he tells her that he has a knife and it will cut people's fingers off. Understandably, she leaves him alone.
