In this paper I shall offer a strategy to bypass a counter-example which Gareth Evans offers against Quine's well-known. Thesis of Referential Inscrutability. The bulk of the paper will be devoted to developing an extension of a proposal that Christopher Hookway offers on behalf of the Quinean which avoids losing its empirical adequacy. I shall argue that Evans' counter-example cannot refute Quine's thesis.
