(Quentin Glass watches impassively while three hoodlums beat and kick Micky Duka.)

Quentin Glass:
You sell homegrown pot by the ounce, Micky, not by the barrel. You sell badly-forged fake passports to Haitians. So what inspired you to become the Mr. Universe of international arms dealers? Micky, you should apologize for the death of Mr. Saint's youngest son.

Micky Duka:
Okay, I know how it looks, but Bobby, he buys pot from me. And, and when he found out what I was doing, he insisted on coming in. He put up half the cash. He came of his own free will! (One of the hoodlums kicks him.) If you're gonna kill me, will you leave my face alone - for my mother?

Quentin Glass:
We just made your bail. Now, if I'd wanted to kill you I would have left you in jail, where we have friends, and in a way I can only describe as deeply pornographic, you would have been killed. But you're a small piece of shit, and I don't want the Karma of your death on my conscience. But on the other hand, maybe I don't believe in karma. So, guys-

Micky Duka:
No, no, no! I'll tell you anything you wanna know!

Quentin Glass:
Then this'll be quick. I want to know one thing only: who brokered the deal?

Micky Duka:
His name's Otto Krieg. And if it's any comfort to Mr. Saint, he's dead too.

Howard Saint, (entering):
Well, it's not. It's actually no comfort at all. But what might be comforting to me is watching the slow death of the man who was supposed to be taking care of my son and making sure he did not get into trouble.

Quentin Glass:
Where's Castle? (Dave and Bumpo stare at the floor.) Frank Castle. Who lives here. (to Bumpo) I asked you a question, fat man.

Dave:
Leave him alone.

Quentin Glass:
Then I'll ask you. Where's Castle?

Dave:
He's not here.

Quentin Glass:
Really? Are you sure?

Dave:
(mumbles unintelligibly.)

Quentin Glass:
What did you say? Hmm? I'm having a difficult time hearing you.

Dave:
I said, "I'm not saying shit".

Quentin Glass:
I don't want you to say "shit", I want you to answer me. You don't want to say anything about anything you might know? (He gets a set of pliers from tool cabinet and sits facing Dave.) Well, maybe we should get to know each other better. What's your name?

Dave:
Dave.

Quentin Glass:
You go to school around here? (Dave shakes his head.) You don't go to school?

Dave:
No. No, I dropped out.

Quentin Glass:
You dropped out? You're not doing drugs, are you?

Dave:
Not right now...

Quentin Glass:
And what are you doing with all this stuff? What is that?

Dave:
Piercings.

Quentin Glass:
Piercings. Did it hurt when you did that?

Dave:
Not really.

Quentin Glass:
You like that, when it hurt a little bit?

Dave:
No.

Quentin Glass, (pointing to eyebrow ring):
That's a special one there, isn't it? Is that your favorite? That's hard to get.

Dave:
Yeah.

Quentin Glass, (fiddling with pliers):
Answer my question, please.

Dave:
No.

Quentin Glass:
Come here. (He reaches for Dave's eyebrow ring with pliers.)

Dave:
No... NO! (Quentin pins Dave's head and grabs the ring.)

Quentin Glass:
(to Bumpo) Your friend's about to have a bad day. You can save him by talking. It doesn't have to be this way. (to Dave) You think you know about pain, boy? What do you know about pain? Huh? (He rips out eyebrow ring; Dave screams.) That's okay, that's okay. Dave? Li'l Dave? Are you gonna tell me?
