Note: For those of you who have not read Schlock Mercenary from the beginning, Kevyn is making reference to the time Schlock poured beer on his plasgun with catastrophic results.

Kevyn:Brad, We're going to 'port back into a distant orbit, and then make a normal approach to the spaceport.
Kevyn:DoytHaban, detach the tank unit before we leave. I want them secured outside the city perimeter in case my team needs armored extraction.
Kevyn:Once we land, Brad and my team are going in to do some fieldwork.
Schlock:Oooh! In a tavern?
Kevyn:If you blow this one up, I promise you'll never see beer, pretzels, or barmaids again for as long as you live.
