Tom Carey: As usual, Mr. Brawley's out of step with everybody.
Paladin: Not everybody, Tom. Now I don't want you to bother her again.
Tom Carey: You're asking me, of course.
Paladin: I'll start with that. I'm asking you not to bother this girl again.
Tom Carey: And if asking me to turn from what I figure is right costs us about the last drop of friendship we got?
Paladin: That's a stiff price. But if you force me to it... I'll pay it.
Jenkins: But it all happened so gradual...
Paladin: You knew, mister. Every one of you knew. First thing you gave up was a piece of your backbone. You didn't feel it, you should have known something was wrong when you tried to walk and you could do was crawl.
