- You're the talker.
- Old men and little girls. Little boys. Walking hand and hand down the street. Romantic couples. 100,000 prostitutes in this one town alone.
- It's a lifestyle choice. That's what everyone says here.
- What do you say, pornographer?
- The girls choose prostitution over starvation.
- And you got rich from it. Rich men like you made the world that gave them such good choices.
- I'm ready to do something about it. Are you?
