  • Mal: Painter girl seemed pretty at home in the house.
    Jake: Yeah, she knew exactly where to find that hammer, eh? You don't think that maybe, eh... you don't think that maybe there might have been something going on between her and Pete?
    Mal: Never under-estimate the appeal of a virile older man.
  • Jake: You pay for this?
    Christian: No.
    Jake: How many times've I got to tell you? No free pints to anyone!
    Mal: Do a father's heart proud.
    Christian: It's just a couple of pints; relax, Jake.
    Jake: A couple of... look, it all adds up, Christian, all right? And if you're giving free pints to this one, he'll drink us to the ground, trust me.
