Paladin: Very few damsels in distress are so charming.
Michelle: It's for someone very dear to me.
Michelle: My nephew. He ran away from home and I have a wire that he's in a little trouble in Filito. He's Pierre Deverell. He wears trouble like a...boutonierre. He's disinheirit by his father, a strong and wealthy man. He will not permit the boy's mother, my sister, to help their son. So she talk to me, and I talk to you.
Paladin: Well, I'm delighted you have.
Michelle: M'sieu Deverell gives my sister very little, and I have, uh, not much.
Paladin: Well, money is one of the lesser endowments.
Michelle: I have some, very fine old...cognac.
Paladin: That's an excellent beginning.
