Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Interrogation Interruption


Shv'uu: Hey, ennesby. You want to take a hypernode call from haban?
Sign: Omnivend
Ennesby: Sure. I've been looking for a chess rematch. How's the better half of Doyt doing, anyway? Still trapped in that thick skull?
Shv'uu: I'd say he's in some kind of a bind. Either that, or Doyt got both of them drunk somehow.
Ennesby: Really? Does he sound upset, or incoherent or something?
Shv'uu: No. But he's calling collect, complete with directory assistance charges.
Narrator: Don't ask about the pricing on interstellar operator-assisted calls. You don't want to know.
