The man who has nothing to boast of but his illustrious ancestry is like the potato - the best part underground. - Thomas Overbury
Catherine Rather like you’re family, Nathan.
Nathan Now, that was rude!
Cristov I’d hardly call Nathan’s family illustrious, and the best part of them is certainly not underground.
Nathan Oh, they were illustrious, alright; illustrious for their notoriety.
Cristov Come now Nathan, there were a few good eggs in there. Your grandfather was a good man, and your mother was truly an angel of a woman.
Nathan That’s true. And I’ve read family records that indicated that Nathaniel Rowan was a decent sort of chap, if a bit austere. But the rest of them, we’re well rid of ‘em.
Arinda They couldn’t have been too awful, Nathan. They produced you.
Nathan Aw! Why can’t there be more people like you in my life, Rinda? There’s actually a tear in my eye.
Simon There’s a tear in my eye, too… due to the stench of that steaming pile of bull…
Nathan I’d be happy to bring tears to your eyes for an entirely different reason.
Cristov That’s enough, you two.
