    • Oscar Wilde: Have you paid the ransom?
      Paladin: In a manner of speaking. I wanted to be sure you hadn't been harmed first.
      Oscar Wilde: No, I'm much too valuable a piece of merchandise for that. Damaged goods have to be sold at a discount, you know. Oh, the gall of that man Rook. Do you know he wanted to ask only 10,000 for me? And in dollars, not even pounds sterling! Can you imagine the insult if that got out. A measly 10,000 for Oscar Wilde! Naturally I insisted it be raised to 50,000.
