Nothing all that odd for him really... pretenses toward high culture and lengthy bubble baths. The latter's where Mark Shaw busted him for a parole violation. Seeing him taken into custody wearing nothing but his top hat's a life-scarring moment. \:\)

And it should be noted that the scene also references the Max Allan Collins Annual #11 story.
