In the end, they both end up with a reason not to rat on the Leprechauns. Maria because she doesn't want to separate a family, Jean-Marie because he actually can't backstab someone who just went out of his way to help him.
But Jean-Marie can't just admit that. Gratefulness? No, better make excuses than admit he has some decent bones in his body!
Deep down, I think he wants to be a decent man, but keeps getting in the way of his prickly nature.
He mistakes his flaws for virtues, so he hangs on to them even when his conscience and common sense want to question them. That may be his biggest flaw, since it holds all the others together.
