Quote #13

Dorian walked to the door with a look of pain in his face. As he drew the curtain aside, a hideous laugh broke from the painted lips of the woman who had taken his money. "There goes the devil's bargain!" she hiccoughed, in a hoarse voice.

"Curse you!" he answered, "don't call me that."

She snapped her fingers. "Prince Charming is what you like to be called, ain't it?" she yelled after him. (16.22-23)

This reminder of Dorian's fatal choice to go from "Prince Charming" to "devil's bargain" is the last thing he needs right now – a reminder of the grotesque mess he's made of his life.
