Shadow: Best thing, only good thing about being in prison is the relief. You don't worry if they're going to get you when they already got you. Tomorrow can't do anything today hasn't already managed.

Low Key: Even better with a death sentence. Bang. Worst has already happened. You get a few days to let it sink in, and then you're riding the cart on the way to do your dance on nothing. This country went to hell when they stopped hanging folks. No gallows dirt, no gallows deals.

Shadow: No gallows humor.

Low Key: Yeah. Funniest fucking shit in the world.”
