Courtney: "Easy, mon. Don't go spreading accusations at King Courtney when you don't know the deal. Yes, it was my men who went to the bartender's pad to collect some money owed to me but they're no murderers. When they got there, they found the man dead and came back here. Rest easy, mon, and tell me who you are."
Mike: "The name's Mike. Now tell me more so I can believe you."
Courtney: "I want to find the bastards as much as you do. Whatever money the bartender has was stolen. That's my money, and I want it back. Do some favors for me and I'll help you track down the murderer."
