Messenger: Ah. Well, Iv'e met my share of lowlives...  Lorelei: Really? You?

Messenger: I was born to a single mother--hustled and stole on the streets as a kid. Had a juvenile rapsheet a mile long. Always had a way with words, though. Always...charming.Lorelei: So what happened? Messenger: A 'friend' was working with a columbian drug mob. Using trucks of cattle...as drug mules. Lorelei: Cows're...mules?? Messenger: Slang. Drugs were...inside them. They trusted me...

Messenger: Their mistake. I hijacked a cattle truck...contacted the District Attorney.  I was still a minor--barely.  Collected a considerable reward which funded my college...my law school. Lorelei: Wow.
