Reply to "verb tenses"

Rachel, my two cents about 5 & 6:

5: The speaker/writer feels surprised, at the fact itself.
6: The speaker/writer feels surprised, too, but at the very idea or thought of him doing that.

Tense has rich meanings. There should be some difference, though not yet explicitly known to us, between 5 & 6.
