The dialogue in the upper right corner is as follows:
THUG: I heard he pissed off a mob boss what throwed acid in his face. Afterwards.
PREACHER: Lo, he was a lost lamb, a wandering heathen, 'til the light did come unto him and cleanse him of his face. Behold the tender mercies of the Lord.
SAILOR: I posit he is a primitive ancestor of man--a proto-man, if you will--decked out to appear human. He is a clever fellow, you see.
