Zalman was lucky. T-boning a 99 year old is a good way to become a killer.

I guess that makes Frances lucky, too.

Did the guy at the bowling alley look behind the desk? That's usually where lost money ends up.

"...failed to yield at a stop sign..."

Yield? Isn't one supposed to stop at a stop sign regardless of whether anyone else is there?

I dropped off the money exactly as per... look, man, I've got certain information, all right? Certain things have come to light. And, you know, has it ever occurred to you, that, instead of, uh, you know, running around, uh, uh, blaming me, you know, given the nature of all this new sh**, you know, I-I-I-I... this could be a-a-a-a lot more, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, complex, I mean, it's not just, it might not be just such a simple... uh, you know?
