    I guess, death is more merciful than a life sentence in a Haitian prison.

    Sounds familiar: .Harry Mudd: [explaining his latest trouble] I, uh… sold the Denebians all the rights to a Vulcan fuel synthesizer.

    Capt. Kirk: And the Denebians contacted the Vulcans.

    Mudd: How’d you know?

    Kirk: That’s what I would have done.

    Mudd: Hmp. Typical police mentality! They’ve got no sense of humour; they arrested me!

    McCoy: Oh, I find that shocking.

    Mudd: Worse than that! Do you know what the penalty for fraud is on Deneb 5?

    Spock: The guilty party has his choice. Death by electrocution, death by gas, death by phaser, death by hanging…

    Mudd: The key word in your entire peroration, Mr. Spock, was… d-d-d-DEATH. Barbarians! Well, of course I… left.

    Kirk: [to the others] He broke jail.

    Mudd: I, ah, borrowed transportation…

    Kirk: He stole a spaceship.

    Mudd: …the patrol reacted in a hostile manner…

    Kirk: They fired at him!

    Mudd: They’ve got no respect for private property – they damaged the bloody spaceship!

    Was he supposed to get ‘’death by quartering’’ or ‘’the ratbox’’?

    It’s a reference to the Star Trek episode “I, Mudd”, with scofflaw Harry Mudd explaining what he was up to since the last time he tangled with Kirk.

    They were originally going to send him to the Democratic National Convention but decided that that would be too cruel and inhumane.

    Ford Prefect: If we’re lucky [the Vogon captain] will throw us out into space [without any space suits].

    Arthur Dent: And if we’re unlucky?

    Ford Prefect: He’ll read us some of his poetry first.

    The Duvalier family was supported in part by the US because they were pure death on drug dealers. Later on the CIA came to realize it was eliminating the competition more than any moral high ground on their part, or the CIA’s.

    Ole Duke COULD have enjoyed the embrace of a Columbian necktie, which is what Honey means by “reduced”.
