Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part I: Primate Principio


Reverend Theo: Sergeant, how do you feel about our employer?
Schlock: He pays well.
Reverend Theo: Don't you worry about his motives?
Schlock: My combat bonus from the Spear boarding is already earning interest at 11%.
Reverend Theo: Sergeant, you're helping him wage an unprovoked war on an entire star system. Doesn't that worry you in the least?
Schlock: When my shares in the plunder finally vest I'll be able to buy the circus.
Reverend Theo: It always comes back to monkeys somehow.
