And here are some more I considered noteworthy:

Q20: "Is there a 'Cognac?'"
A: "There might be."
Q47: "Gin did say, 'A job that RUM screwed... I couldn't care less...', Does he dislike Rum?"
Q93: "The 'screwing up' that RUM did during the Haneda Kouji case, was it a major mistake? If that was the case, why wasn't RUM killed (as punishment)?
A: "Because (they're) No. 2."
see Cognac in the future... as well as a new Tequila, and/or a new Pisco, and/or a new Calvados.
It seems that Rum was No. 2 back 17 years ago, and that while Gin may respect Rum's sheer authority as No. 2, he may not exactly care for the guy—probably not as much as he now resents Vermouth and her secretive moves, though.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
“Education never ends... it is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.”
