While Harold is using a clawhammer to mutilate the bodies (destroying their teeth so the police can't identify them), Ward shows up, having been summoned by Harold to dump the bodies.
-->'''Harold Meachum:''' ''[cheerfully]'' Oh, Ward! It's about time! ''[Ward quickly grabs the nearest wastepaper basket so he can retch, only to freeze up when he sees Harold's severed finger at the bottom, leaving him reduced to dry-heaving]'' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint You okay, son? You look a little green.]] Hey, what happened to your hands?
