Lady: Quit trying to take my purse, you brigand! I'll have to call the police!

Thief: The police don't have carte blanche, though.

Lady: Don't be so contemptuous!

Thief: Are you trying to start a donnybrook?

Lady: Not without an incantation.

Thief: Would you know the correct nomenclature?

Lady: Yes.

Thief: You don't have to be so nonchalant.

Lady: Witnesses are rife, so I could go to the police about you stealing my purse.

Thief: The jail is so stygian, though.

Lady: That is a vestige of older jails.
