[SHIELD IN HOUSE SURVEILLANCE FILES: 02232017]
Loc: NYC SAFEHOUSE Maddison/59th
Maria: So what do you think of things around here so far, Agent?
Peggy: Oh, do call me Peggy, please. We’ve worked together long enough, there’s no need for formality. Pass the crisps please, would you, Maria? <takes the bag> So many incredible changes in this time. The food is quite better. I never did learn to cook. Out in the field, I had a horrible tendency to burn my rations. Dugan and the others never let me live it down. <smiles softly, remembering> Steve never laughed. He always shared his, which were as undercooked as mine was burnt.
Maria: <shifting the conversation> I see the new clothes I brought you fit.
Peggy: Oh yes, indeed. Thank you! These fabrics are quite light and comfortable. I imagine they’re much less cumbersome in a fight. And the undergarments! It takes me a fraction of the time to dress in the morning!
Maria: <snickers> I never thought I’d be talking about bras with the great Peggy Carter. <grabs a chip>
