In retrospect, maybe they shouldn't have taken the job from Lee R. "Slick" DeSchonko. In retrospect, letting Marvin do the negotiations was a bad idea.

He looked downtrodden and ashamed and... one good cry away from the state he was in when they ungently removed him from that vagabond gang he'd fallen in with. "...'m sorry I was dumb an' didn't get it right," he mumbled. Then he cringed in anticipation of a blow to the head.
