Quotes: Conveniently an Orphan
Samuel.: For he is an orphan boy!
Chorus.: He is! Hurrah for the orphan boy!
General: And it sometimes is a useful thing
To be an orphan boy.
Chorus.: It is! Hurrah for the orphan boy!
Hurrah for the orphan boy!

"Dete's taking Heidi to live with her grandfather since her parents died of a tragic case of not-explained-in-the-slightest."
Obscurus Lupa, Heidi 4 Paws review

Vesper:...and since your first thought about me ran to orphan, that's what I'd say you are.
Bond: (just smiles)
Vesper: Oh, you are? Hm. I like this poker thing - and that makes perfect sense, since MI6 looks for maladjusted young men who give little thought to sacrificing others in order to protect Queen and country.

"Orphans always make the best recruits."
M, Skyfall
