Lucky Seven -- Caught Napping
Early exposure to the exotic dancers and burlesque performers that his mother worked with had certainly given him an appreciation for a gilded lily but she was something else, a pitcher plant maybe.

Sonia was arguably more passive about it. She was also way too smart for her own good. His too, come to that.
