To 2013...To Our Everests...To Our Norgays

Wrigley: "Who are you looking for?" 
Miles: "Tenzing Norgay." 
Wrigley: "Tenzing Norgay? That's someone she slept with?" 
Miles: "I doubt it. Tenzing Norgay was the Sherpa that helped Edmund Hillary climb Mount Everest."
Wrigley: "And Marilyn knows him?" 
Miles: "No, you idiot. Not THE Tenzing Norgay. HER Tenzing Norgay." 
Wrigley: "I'm not sure that I actually follow that." 
Miles: "Few great accomplishments are achieved single-handedly. Most have their Norgays. Marilyn Rexroth is even now climbing her Everest. I wanna find her Norgay."
