>you have his comment at the end that for a lot of money he might have set
her free. Claiming that Sam is moral after reading that admission is beyond me. <

Is it required to take that statement of Sam's at face value?

I can imagine a character who would say such a thing and be -- what -- blustering? bluffing? kidding himself? trying to keep himself from acknowledging what his real limits are?
