Book 8: The Sharp End of the Stick — Part IV: Do You Mind if I Rewind?


Ennesby: Captain, no battle-plan survives contact with the enemy.
Captain Tagon: I know that.
Ennesby: So. . . What are you going to do if they're ready for us?
Captain Tagon: Aren't you the one who was telling me that they wouldn't be?
Ennesby: Well, yeah, but I've been known to make a mistake or two.
Captain Tagon: Assuming we survive the Charlie Foxtrot your mistake presents us with, I'll probably poke out one of your eyes while we all run like cheap paint.
Ennesby: Oh, good. You DO have a backup plan.
