Wesley: "To the pain" means the first thing you lose will be your
feet below the ankles. Then your hands at the wrists, next your
Humperdink: And then my tongue, I suppose, I killed you too quickly
the last time, a mistake I don't mean to duplicate tonight.
Wesley: I wasn't finished! The next thing you lose will be your
left eye, followed by your right.
Humperdink: And then my ears, I understand! Let's get on with it!
Wesley: WRONG! Your ears you keep and I'll tell you why. So that
every shreik of every child at seeing your hideousness will be
yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every
woman who cries out "dear God, what is that thing?" will echo in
your perfect ears. That is what "the pain" means. It means I leave
you in anguish. Wallowing in freakish misery forever.
