Ace makes some hard bargains when it comes to Petunia, "if you want me to give up my winnings to a man who doesn't deserve it, I'm going to want more than that quick peck." He's quite cocky as well, "if I bring you into my world, you won't be satisfied with any other man." When these two get together I like watching them tease each other:
