The title reads "Hooligan redeems things from the Municipal pawnbrokers and sells them. Purchase and sale of all sorts of merchandise." The conversation between the conniver and his victim goes as follows: "I have obtained your watch here. I give you 5 francs for it." "Five francs! I'd rather leave it in pawn." "As you like, but in that case you owe me 10 francs for my travel and commission."
