    Spig Wead: I’ve been thinking what a heel I’ve been about you and about my own kids. I don’t know, when I do something, I go all the way. Living. Gambling. Flying. I tap myself out. I guess that’s the way I want it to be. Maybe even the way I am.
    Minne Wead: Star-spangled Spig. Damn the martinis, full speed ahead and don’t give up the ship.
