  1. Jean-Baptiste Cutting: "Ha ha, I think he wet himself before he left. That was pretty good making up that part about sleeping with Jacob."
    (Jean-Baptiste Cutting's dialogue)
  2. Gloria Van Graff: "Everything. Up until recently, this man was an employee of mine. He's quite handsome, don't you think? I know I did. We became... close. I warned him that I was a very jealous woman, and he said he understood. Apparently he didn't. Last week, I chanced upon him in Gomorrah, being serviced by one of their two-cap whores. I was not pleased."
    (Gloria Van Graff's dialogue)
  3. Jean-Baptiste Cutting: "Damn it, girl, what has mama always said about tipping the help? I thought this was about him stealing money from us."
    Gloria Van Graff: "He was stealing money, though he could have kept it for all I cared. God knows he earned it."
