Topaz: Tell me, would it make a grave any warmer if you shared it?
Paladin: Well, they could have left me my horse and my food.
Topaz: They probably didn't think you needed the food. And would you leave a horse tied to a tree to starve to death?
Paladin: My horse was saddled and free.
Topaz: Free--to trip on the reins and break its neck!
Paladin: Well, I was particularly impressed with their concern for the welfare of my money. I'm sure they took that to keep it from falling into the wrong hands.
Topaz: Oh, you survived. Leave it alone!
Paladin: I surviv--! Topaz. I survived because the cat that clawed me I shot, and fortunately it died near enough so I had the meat to eat, and a skin to wrap myself up in at night. That's why I survived.
