Maybe, but it's mostly uttered in more of a "You'll be sorry when Frost gets his hands on you!" manner. Leastways, it seems like Quinn knows something (planned) that Blade doesn't, and he feels he'll have the last laugh. FWIW, it seems to fluctuate between "nabo" and "mabo", but the guy's spitting blood at the time, so it's hard to tell what's deliberate. --- Pb "There's only one thing worse than not knowing, and that's not guessing."
