Alas poor Rotney, I knew him, Spotter ... Minkey.

This is said in the scene when Frank and Spotter speak with the gravedigger (Booters} in the grave yard. Frank is angry with Booters and almost incomprehensibly Greek for making fun of the nature of his menial yet important work. Frank looks around at the dead bodies and picks up a skull. The skull belongs to Rothers .... it is surrounded by pennies, Rothers known by Frank as Rotney a court jester and a now late departed friend of Frank's. This quote represents sorrow that his friend is dead and makes reference to 'the circle of life' theme found in the entire story. It also shows that no matter how insane Frank appears to be, he has human feelings over the loss of someone he knew. It expresses his feelings to Spotto, fetchingly dressed up in a green cloak because Spotter is Frank's best friend and the only other person that Frank trusts.

I've been waiting for the quote facility to be fixed on archive, and now that glorious day is here, I can finally say.... What the fuck is this shit all about?
