Maynard, you have, entirely, a bucket of eels.

E.B.

Emily, whoever took your son never meant to hurt him. They just wanted money. And something went horribly wrong.

Perry

We only kept the females. I mean, when we were havin' litters. Not that we pushed the toms out, mind you. We're right Catholics. Mr. Trotter got a bucket and drown 'em. It's the humane thing to do.

Mrs. Trotter

Della: E.B. will take care of everything. Don't you worry.
Emily: Don't worry. We just went casket shopping for my son.

Do I pay you to answer the phone? Yes. I do.

E.B.

E.B.: We gotta look at what we got. Matthew's a gambler; Emily's a cheat. Do either of you think they killed their kid?
Della: No.
Perry: I don't know. Not intentionally.

Perry: They should've let her see the kid get buried.
E.B.: Well, they said they would, but who tells the truth anymore?

Perry: I don't like it here.
E.B.: We do what we don't like so the greater good gets served. You more than anyone else should know that.

Perry: Do you know how many different types of thread there are in this city?
E.B.: You'll find it, boy-o. That's the kind of thing you're good at.
