"Rich folk don't appreciate the value of a dollar." Pierre thought.
When Marie found Fifi's body, Mrs. Winchester had fired her on the spot. Pierre fumed as he drove the dog to Savings and Clone. Marie had just been doing her job, after all.
Pierre had been told to arrange for Fifi's cloning. He carried a check for $100,000 in his pocket.
Pierre knew he could cash that check and nobody would know so long as Mrs. Winchester got Fifi back. He also knew that 'specially here in N'Orleans, there's folk who can do that for lots less than $100,000.
