The Dawn of the Giraffe
Francine Parker: "The Giraffe is still here."

The Arrival of the Quantum Deer
Kasper Gutman: "You're a close-mouthed deer?"
Deer: "Nah, I like to talk."
Kasper Gutman: "Better and better. I distrust a close-mouthed deer. He generally picks the wrong time to talk and says the wrong things. Talking's something you can't do judiciously, unless you keep in practice."
Kasper Gutman: "Now, deer. We'll talk, if you like. I'll tell you right out, I am a man who likes talking to a deer who likes to talk."
Deer: "Swell. Will we talk about the yellow wall?"

Gentleman: "He's not wrong."
Giraffe: "The one who followed me on the subway, he's our biggest problem."
Gentleman: "Let me handle him."
Giraffe: "There'll be others."

There was a Zebra of mine on murder
And the judge's gavel fell
Jury found it guilty
Gave the Zebra sixteen years in hell
The Zebra said "I ain't spending my life here
I ain't living alone
Ain't breaking no rocks on the chain gang
I'm breakin' out and headin' home
Gonna make a jailbreak
Got to be free
Jailbreak, let me out of here
Jailbreak, sixteen years
Jailbreak, had more than I can take
