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


Captain Tagon:Are your troops subject to the same death sentence you are? Perhaps you can be persuaded to surrender for their sake.
Commodore Shufgar:We are Patriots, not mercenaries. Our lives belong to the Great Cause Of Democracy.
Captain Tagon:Well, we are mercenaries, not patriots, our lives belong to us.
Captain Tagon:And right now so do your lives. We'd like to be able to convert them into currency, rather than ash.
Commodore Shufgar:In that case you are going to have to spend money in order to make money.
