Book 5: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance — Part I: Hand to Mouth


Kerchak: Fall in, you apes! We're gonna do this riot-mashing thing and we're gonna like it.

Kerchak: Sergeant, I've seen the mercenary-issue goober guns. They're big. Non-regulation big, even.
Redhead UNS Sergeant: Oh?
Kerchak: On cold nights you can fill the barrel with hot water and have yerself a bath.
