Plastic trikes in the yards, people out watering the flowers and working on their cars, kids in the driveways shooting hoops, the high-frequency squeal of a TV sweep circuit through a screen door as Doc came up the path of the address he was looking for, to be followed by the more worldly sounds, as he reached the front steps, of The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour. According to Fritz, the sweet frequency was 15,570 cycles per second, and the instant Doc turned thirty, which would be any minute now, he would no longer be able to hear it. So this routine of American house approach had begun to hold for him a particular sadness.
-Thomas Pynchon, from Inherent Vice.
