Rebecca Femm: They were all godless here. They used to bring their women here - brazen, lolling creatures in silks and satins. They filled the house with laughter and sin, laughter and sin. And if I ever went down among them, my own father and brothers - they would tell me to go away and pray, and I prayed - and left them with their lustful red and white women.

Rebecca Femm: That'll do... I know your mocking, lying tongue.

Horace Femm: ...To thank them for the Health and Prosperity and Happiness granted to this family, for its years of Peace and Plenty, to thank them for having created Rebecca Femm, and Roderick Femm, and Saul...
