When the winner collects his money, Otto approaches the man and asks him to change a hundred-dollar bill.

Episode Quotes
Ben: Those macaws are noisy critters, aren't they, Mr. Justin?
Otto Justin: Ah, but fascinating, Mr. Fraser, fascinating. You know, they can intimate almost any sound a human can make. Even to accents. And they can speak whole sentences.
Ben: They keep up that screaming all the way to St. Louis, they're going to hear some sentences they've never heard before in Africa.
Otto Justin: Macaws are from South America, Mr. Fraser.

Otto Justin: I trust being in the midst of a crowd will not cause you to be filled with senseless courage, my dear. One can be just as dead with people around as alone.
