Exploitation of paternity. Well, my son, never lose your filial piety, always remember that a father represents all that is sacred. So say, you don't have a few sous to give me, I'm dying of thirst and I'm out of tobacco.
(Exploitation de la Paternité. Ah ! Mon fils, ne perdez jamais la piété filiale, souvenez vous toujours qu’un père est le représentant de la divinité….. Dis donc, tu n’as pas quelques sous à me donner, je meurs de soif et je manque de tabac.)
