The pay-off owed

“If I were to advise new writers, I would advise like this: Tell me no pointless jokes; I will laugh at your refusal to allow me laughter. Build me no tension toward tears and refuse my lamentations; I will go find me better wailing walls. Do not clench my fists for me and hide the target; I might strike you, instead. Above all, sicken me not unless you show me to the ship’s rail.”
— Ray Bradbury
