"Drink this tea, Tovarisch; you feel better. There's honey and lemon in it."
The Russian growled, "I would not need tea or to feel better if you knew how to swim! Bozhe moi, bring me another blanket!"
"It's difficult to swim in handcuffs, Partner Mine. Look on the bright side: The Old Man gave me time off to take care of you and you're here in my penthouse instead of that dreary little walk – up or yours."
"This tea tastes very good, Napoleon."
"It should; it's mostly vodka."
"Just what the doctor ordered. Spacibo."
