[Walter has been beaten up by Billy because he owes him money, but he tells Gracie that he was mugged]
Gracie : How could you have got yourself into a mess like this?
Walter : Me? Look, I'm the victim here. Attacked from behind. It's getting rough round these parts. Where are you going?
Gracie : Where do you think? You *have* been paying Doctor Lloyd every month?
Walter : What do you think I am?
[Elizabeth comes in]
Elizabeth : Blood and sand!
Walter : Oh, don't start, woman.
Elizabeth : Oh, look at the state of that. You'll never get that clean. You're gonna lose that arm, I'm telling you now.
Gracie : Keep it clean till I get back.
Elizabeth : Gangrene. That'll be that. And if it gets hold, that's the end of him.
Gracie : He won't get gangrene. He might well die of starvation, though.
Walter : I'll be all right in a few days.
Gracie : You'll be lucky if you're back to work next month. Look at the state of you.
Elizabeth : If you don't end up deformed, I'll eat me hat.
