“Where is my client?”

“Well, relay a message.”

“Killua. Know your place.”

“I’ll kill you. Right here. And now.”

“Dad, can you let me choose the next butler?”

“Tell him to wire the money to my account as agreed.”

“I find it hard to believe that this was just a coincidence.”

“Amazing! I want this power above all else!!! Nanika is mine!!”

“Okay. I’ve known you a little longer than Chrollo. But it’ll cost you.”

“I’m happy to die to save the rest of the family. Killua will suffer for the rest of his life. I’ll live on forever in his heart!!”

“Amazing. Killua’s orders are risk-free. I could turn Killua into a complete puppet and the pros would still outweigh the cons!!”

“At this rate, Alluka will remain locked away in a room forever. But if you let me manage the two of you I can guarantee you minimal freedom, at least”

“I joined the Spiders on Hisoka’s commission. We had a give-and-take relationship… but we knew one of us would kill the other in the end. And now that’s come to pass.”

“Now I can tell you, that you would not make a good Hunter. Your calling is as an assassin. There’s no fire in you, just darkness. It sustains you, drains you of any desire. Your only joy is in causing death, and even that is fleeting. That is how Dad and I molded you.”
