  • Quotes

    • (A woman has requested that Paladin search for her missing brother.)
      Paladin: You suspect violence.
      Arthur: Mmmph. With brother Courtney the victim? It's hardly likely.
      Beatrice: How can you say that?
      Arthur: Because I've encountered hundreds like him. This nation has produced a bumper crop. The Bad Check Fraternity. Brotherhood of the I.O.U.
      Beatrice: That's not being fair--
      Arthur: I'm being honest. That's what Mr. Paladin needs, honesty at this end. If not at the other. The quick smile, the empty promise, the moist handshake, that's what you look for. And when you feel the sudden thrust of a knife between your shoulders, that's when you know you've found Courtney Burgess.
      Beatrice: My husband's merchant's mind fails to acknowledge that--some men are born special. Destined for more than...keeping ledgers.
