   After meeting with William Black and finding out about the story of the key, Oskar leaves. When Oskar leaves he screams and runs away.
   Thomas lies to his wife and tells her that he is out of the building during a phone call, when she clearly knows he hasn't escaped. He doesn't lie but tries to assure her that he will get out safely.
   Oskar and his grandfather get Thomas Schell's coffin exhumed so they can bury all the unsent letters the grandfather never sent to his son in the coffin. They don't do this.
   Oskar is joined by a Mr. Black for several of his visits. Mr. Black gets him to take the subway and the ferry instead of walking everywhere. The Renter goes with Oskar and he convinces him to take the Subway because he is too old to walk everywhere.
   The "Renter", Oskar's grandfather followed Oskar on his trips without his knowledge to keep an eye on him. He went with him.
