Transcript

Tagon:So, what do we call you when we need to talk to you?
Petey:For all purposes, I am the ship, and the ship has been re-christened The Post-Dated Check Loan.
Tagon:Post-dated check loan is a little unwieldy. How about 'Posty?'
Petey:No.
Tagon:'Checky?'
Petey:No.
Tagon:'Loany?'
Petey:No.
Ennesby:I just realized that if you abbreviate the name as P.D.C.L, and then say it aloud, you can get 'petey.'
Petey:Ooh. That could work.
Tagon:Great. I'll call you 'Petey' from here on out.
Petey:I don't suppose you could use my full name once in a while? Like maybe when you're angry?
