RANDOM BACKGROUND CHARACTER APPRECIATION!!!

I have worked with this movie (Sinbad; The Legend of the Seven Seas) at so many occasions, and every time I do I stop for a moment at this scene to appreciate this poor bastard. Just look at his puppy dog eyes!!! This wanker pirate comes along and steals his drink, but when he notices that the dude is accompanied by the prince himself there is no way he could say anything without getting into trouble. 

Someone give this guy a new drink and fast. :,3

PS: Best inner dialog suggestion will get a cookie! :D

- You ended up shooting some poor slob who had the decency to give you a ride.
- Yeah, except for the decency part.
- When did you decide to rob him? Was it before or after you shot him?
- Look, that perv owed me for pain and sufferin’, so yeah, I took his money.
- Why didn’t you turn him in?
- I wanted to. But he kept sayin’ it would be his word against mine, and that he’d get off and I would go to foster care again. And aside from that, I knew if I let him go, he would go kill another girl. And that would’ve been my fault. And I couldn’t have lived with that. Never.

When I was in high school, I went out with a guy whose father was a normal salaryman. Then suddenly, I got a marriage proposal from the son of a hotel owner. At that time, my mother wanted to expand into the hotel business. I put up a lot of resistance, but in the end, she threatened to cut off business ties with his dad’s company. That’s how it all ended. It’s not something that simply made me angry–I truly despised my mother. But my husband truly cherised me, so even now, from the bottom of my heart, I am glad that I married him. But I sometimes wonder how my life would be right now if I had married my boyfriend, who I loved so much, back then. If we had wanted to run away together, we should have been able to. I should have been able to leave this family like Shizuka-chan. In the end, though, I didn’t have the courage to leave this kind of lifestyle.”

You might think it upset me that Paul Metzler had decided to run against me, but nothing could be further from the truth. He was no competition for me. It was like apples and oranges. I had to work a little harder, that’s all. You see, I believe in the voters. They understand that elections aren’t just popularity contests. They know this country was built by people just like me who work very hard and don’t have everything handed to them on a silver spoon. Not like some rich kids who everybody likes because their fathers own Metzler Cement and give them trucks on their 16th birthday and throw them big parties all the time. No. They don’t ever have to work for anything. They think they can just, all of a sudden, one day out of the blue waltz right in with no qualifications whatsoever and try to take away what other people have worked for very, very hard their entire lives! No! Didn’t bother me at all!”

“Good? Honest is more what I mean. Not law-type honest – I’d rob a grave, I’d steal two-bits off a dead man’s eyes if I thought it would contribute to the day’s enjoyment – but unto-thyself-type honest. Be anything but a coward, a pretender, an emotional crook, a whore: I’d rather have cancer than a dishonest heart. Which isn’t being pious. Just practical.”
