‘You have next to nothing now, but when I’m finished with you won’t even have that!’

‘You’re a cold hearted bitch, Maggie. Yeah, I’m ... we’re bankrupt, but I can start again.’

‘I’ll take whatever you make. I’m going to bleed you dry, Darren. You’ll be on life support.’

‘At least I’ll have a life without you.’

‘One not worth living. You’re going to have to keep me in the life to which I’m accustomed.’

‘That shouldn’t be too difficult, since act like you were born in the gutter.’

‘You’re ... You’re a big nothing!’

‘And half of nothing is?’

Rob - As always, a great story. I really am impressed with the way you use dialogue to give backstory. Well done.
