Dialogue[edit]

Doctor: Good God, you should not have amputated!
Dr. Ferris: What?
Doctor: You have mangled this child for life!

Barbara Ferris: How do you happen to know so much about Art?
Blizzard: My father, who shall be nameless, was a distinguished man. But he detested little boys with their legs clipped off. So at fifteen I hobbled out of his life.

Barbara Ferris: Why do you live in the underworld?
Blizzard: When Satan fell from Heaven he looked for power in Hell.
