  • Toby: I'm a social worker on wheels.
  • Oz: The point of this whole venture is to use your ability to make a fortune. You're not thinking long-term. You could be a legend; a con man for the ages.
    Toby: Not my style.
    Oz: So what; you're like a telepathic Robin Hood? Stealing from the unjustly rich, giving to the unfairly poor?
