Character error 

In the opening bit of dialogue, one of the old ladies points out that there is an "accent grave" over the final e in a character's name, meaning it would be pronounced "Sous-AY", not "Souse". In fact, it's an accent aigu (or acute accent), in both pronunciation and painted on the mailbox she's looking at.
