“Are you sure? A man’s task is to die with honour, but a woman’s task is to endure.”
Remittance Girl, Gaijin

“You scare me, Sebastian. You're so good looking, and so clever, and so damn charming. Hell, you're even sporting a monster dick - not that I go for that sort of thing, but a lot of women do. Sebastian, if someone had to design a death trap for stupid women, you'd be it.”
Remittance Girl, Beautiful Losers
