Crito first argued that if Socrates did not escape, then he would hurt Crito both by making him lose a good friend, and would also ruin Crito's reputation by making people think that it had been possible for him to get Socrates out, but did not because he did not want to spend his money, which would thereby attach a reputation for caring more for money than for friendship. He said, “For if you die I shall not only lose a friend who can never be replaced, but there is another evil: people who do not know you and me will believe that I might have saved you if I had been willing to give money, but that I did not care” (Jowett, 2009, line 28).
