On I95 north of Boston, there's a billboard for Citizen's Bank which says:

We never forget it's your money.

That's about as low as a bank can possibly set the bar: "C'mon, give us your money, and we won't steal it!" Any lower, and they're not so much a bank as a gang of thieves with business cards. It's like a hospital advertising, "We never rip out your kidneys and sell them on eBay".

If they actually ripped them out, they might damage them! Must take 'em out carefully!

Nah

Nah. If they're gonna sell them on eBay, they can get away with lower quality.

Re: Nah

Oh, yeah. Except that, in this case, it's illegal to buy organs. Ethan would've been arrested when he arrived at Kline Station, and would've saved himself all that trouble. A much less interesting story. :-)
