Book 2: The Teraport Wars
Part II: Filling the Tub of Happiness


Narrator:The toughs finish cleaning up after a vicious (though non-lethal) battle.
Schlock:That's the last of 'em.
Elf:Okay. Let's get on with the looting.
Chuk:You guys are ripping us off! We paid you to win!
Petey:We did win. Your competition has been eliminated.
Chuk:So you're gonna let me an' my homeyz go then?
Petey:Nope. That would be breach of contract.
Petey:You see, your competition hired us to eliminate you.By outfitting you all with transceivers, we ensured a complete sweep.
Chuk:Oh, that is just $%ety-#$%!
Gig:You double-crossing #$%@ers are gettin' paid twice!
Petey:Twice? Count again, my delinquent detainees.The local police force paid us to take both of your little gangs out of the picture.
Chuk:Oh, That's low.
Gig:So what are you gonna do with us?
Petey:The merchants association, your neighborhood watch, and the PTA are paying us to haul you to camp Grumplewhine.
Scab:Oh no... Juvie rehab.
Gig:Wait... That means you're gettin' paid four times?!?
Petey:The camp fees are being covered out of the sale of the assorted 'assets' from your dens.There's a big surplus though, so its more like five times.
Petey:Hopefully camp will teach you little thugs that crime does not pay.
Chuba Gangmember1:Obviously it pays for you.
Narrator:Word up on that, homey.
