I had to think about this quite a bit before mentioning it to you.
And why is that, Mr. Rafael?
It wasn’t my idea, and the person who had it – the idea, I mean – is a little old lady who knits and wears lace. She also has a mind like a bacon slicer.
Why didn’t she come to me herself?
She didn’t think you’d take her seriously.
I might have done.
I doubt it. It’s a very good disguise. She even had me fooled for a minute.
Better have her name for the record.
You wouldn’t know if this lady comes from a village in England called St. Mary Mead?
Yeah, yeah! That rings a bell… I think that’s what she said – something like that anyway. How do you know that?
Magnificent! I’ve heard her called the best personality analyst in the world, a ruthless forensic brain – a mind like a bacon slicer would do very well.
I think we just wanted to be part of the lifestyle. The lifestyle that everybody kinda wants.
It’s about distraction. It’s about focus. The brain is slow and it can’t multitask. Tap him here, take from there.
I need your help. I can’t tell you what it is, you can never ask me about it later, and we’re gonna hurt some people.
…Whose car are we gonna’ take?
I never cared who you were…
And you were right.
…but shouldn’t the people know the hero whot saved them?
A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.

We determine who we are by what we do.

Mahoney! Remember, that nobody screws with me.
Well, maybe you’ll meet the right girl and all that will change.
