The "Lady Luck..." bit is worth holding onto, maybe out of gambler's or chef's mouth. Too bad "phrenology" got cut, it is a great piece of history and a way to show how what is accepted as true changes over time.

I actually tried to work the Lady Luck line into THE BLACK DOVE -- I think it was even in an early draft. And then it got cut again! Maybe the third time's the charm.

As for phrenology, I'm sure that'll make a comeback, too, at some point. I love the idea of a supposedly brilliant detective -- a CSI guy of his time -- raving away about how the murderer couldn't have done it because his brow ridge isn't pronounced enough....
