    Now, that's impressive. Good show!
    Fortunately, they weren't Blood Diamonds.
    I wonder how much those guys' taxes will be.

    I just love diamonds! I surely do.
    Mostly, I enjoy old ones, from Golconda, but they're all good.
    The Orlov is my favourite.

    I don't care for that Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. What the world needs is more diamonds–just all we can get.
    Thank you, Mr. Rhodes.
