If you had been taking large groups of school children to ski resorts in
cold weather then you would find very mundane reasons for a roll call
before you come back again.  If it is two children and you know both of
them then probably you don't need a roll call but if it is twenty or
thirty then people who are experienced in this sort of business seem to
think that a roll call is really the most practical way of simply finding
out who is there for sure (and we're going to do it a thousand millions of
times over and get it right every time). 

Ralph Cinque:

Stop making excuses. These weren't children. And if Shelley and Truly said nothing about conducting a roll call, then why should we believe Frazier? And it wasn't even true what Frazier said about everyone except Lee Oswald being present. Charles Givens wasn't there. So, why didn't they suspect him of being the killer and putting out an APB on him?  

I tell you... you people. How long do you think you can keep this up? Don't you know your boat is sinking?
