Bianca: Patrick! What was–Where were–Are you hurt?

Patrick: (OOF) Yes.

Bianca: Is this my fault? Did I make you lose?

Reseda: Mmm . . . Bitten. Nothing a week of rest won’t cure.

Reseda: How?

Timothy: I was hoping you could tell me.

Sparrow: What? Nobody!

Sparrow: . . . You’re not going to tell me I smell good now, are you?
