Bartholomew shows off his work ethic
Bartholomew: Tell him I'll be with him in an hour.
Waitress: All right.
The pregnant waitress walks off.
Krakatoa: You have waitresses?
Bartholomew: Well, technically, she's a nurse, but for a place where so many of us get sick, they don't get much to do.
Krakatoa: We have monks where I come from...
Bartholomew: Guys in loincloths who pray a lot and eat stale bread and go about being virtuous at people? Maybe getting martyred in gruesome ways?
Krakatoa: Well, yeah.
Bartholomew: Tossers, the lot of them. Come back in a hundred years and they'll be running their own fiefdoms, just like this one. It's how it always works, thank God... until some complete wanker starts up a new, "purer" order like those pillocks on pillars*). Sitting up there in their loincloths and never doing a day's work in their lives...
