    • Avatar: You will forgive me for disserving?
      Paladin: I will?
      Avatar: Well, for one thousand dollars? Payable in advance?
      Paladin: Count it out on the table.
      Avatar: I am Dr. Leopold Avatar. Er, perhaps you've read of me?
      Paladin: Hm. Yes, you are Professor Cesare Lombrosso's disciple, and his theory of criminal identification.
      Avatar: It is good to meet someone in this country who has heard of our work.
      Paladin: Well, I do have a, ah, certain interest in criminology.
      Avatar: Ah! Then, perhaps, you will know what these are for. (Holds up calipers.)
      Paladin: Yes. They are used to measure what Lombrosso has termed the "stigmata of degeneracy". Certain cranial abnormalities, a low sensitivity to pain, primitive instincts found in cannibals, cave dwellers, apes, animals... and habitual murderers, in short, the mark of Cain.
      Avatar: And that is why I have come back to America.
      Paladin: Oh, a shortage of murderers in Europe this year?
