- "I'm cat-sitting for a woman I work with. Her brother's sick. She's in Oklahoma."
- ―Claire Temple
Oklahoma is a state located in the south central region of the United States of America.
One of Claire Temple's co-workers at Metro-General Hospital left New York City and traveled to Oklahoma, in order to take care of her brother, who had gotten sick.
As her stay in Oklahoma was going to be relatively long, she asked Temple to cat-sit while she was with her brother, handling her the keys to her apartment.
Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Oklahoma, were the hometowns of two of the Hand's clients that bought their Steel Serpent using the Rand Enterprises' resources.
