Quotes

Swiftnick: [reading the writing on the wall] His hands are weak, his bellies' large, his word ain't worth a button. A nasty, twisting, oily rogue, that human dungheap, Glutton.
[all laugh]
Dick Turpin: There's the dog, immortalized in verse! Is there one about Spiker then?
Swiftnick: Yeah, but not one I can say aloud.
[Spiker stops laughing as Dick glances at the wall]
Dick Turpin: And it doesn't rhyme either.
