A. Butterfield’s Letter

A. Butterfield’s letter is a symbol of trouble and unrest. This letter summons Peter to the secret service headquarters where he is about to be questioned about Windfall, the very operation that Peter does not want to have to talk about because it was so terrible.

These missing files are symbols of deceptions and hidden truths. Ironic is that the files that Peter and the others hid are not even the ones that tell the truth about Windfall.

Hearing Aids

Peter’s hearing aids are a symbol of age and the associated feebleness. When Peter first meets Bunny, Bunny sees the hearing aids and at first treats Peter with some respect because of his age. Peter plays along with the idea that he is old by pretending that he has forgotten entirely about Windfall and his part in it.
