"I heard he retired."
"Yeah, in pieces."
Silvio and Ben Urich[src]

Silvio and Ben Urich[src]

"This is the city. No one else is on this yet. I'm the only one who sees it."

"It doesn’t sell papers, Ben! Not anymore."

Dialogue

"Do you believe that, what they're saying about me?"

―Ben Urich and Mitchell Ellison[src]
"I've made mistakes in the years since I was a boy. I tried to learn from them but it isn't always enough."

"Alright. Let's hear it."
Wilson Fisk and Ben Urich[src]
"I wrote a lot of stories in my days pushing ink, you know how many times people have threatened me, getting me to keep my mouth shut?"
