Book 5: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance
Part III: Handle With Care


Elf:Captain, we've located the nursery. Between the hatchlings and the pre-juvies, we'll have about 650 passengers.
Tagon:Ennesby, run the math for me. Is that a lot or a little?
Ennesby:With the racks, the hatchlings will all fit in stowage aft.
Ennesby:The pre-juvies take up more space, but they'll all fit in the wardroom and the company mess.
Ennesby:That leaves the main hold free for the adults. I think we can get them all in.
Tagon:I meant "Are we getting paid a lot or a little?"
Ennesby:What, I'm a cash register now? That's not 'math' that's 'menial multiplication.'
