Massey: I apologize for the late call, Your Honor, but my clients need a cease-and-desist order immediately.
Luna Judge: What's the problem, counsel?
Massey: I sent you the brief already, to summarize, the U.N.S. Security Council dispatched the Battleplate Tunguska to abduct one of my clients' employees, Doyt Gyo, sans due process.
Luna Judge: A Battleplate? You've got to be kidding me.
Massey: I'm not making this up. The Tunguska has weapons trained on my clients' ship right now.

Luna Judge: You've misunderstood me, counsel.

What I meant was that you've got to be kidding if you think I'm going to try to stop a Battleplate with a court order.
