Tagon: Hello, Duke Bennininn... ini?
Benninyninji: It's pronounced Benninyninji.
Tagon: Okay... Duke, we're ready to teraport in, but Yoming's anti-port systems will put us about a light-hour out.
Benninyninji: So you'll be here in an hour?
Tagon: No, a light-hour. That's distance not, time.
Benninyninji: I don't care about distance. I'm in a hurry.
Tagon: The universe cares about distance.
Benninyninji: Well, the universe isn't paying you. I am.
Ennesby: I never thought I'd meet someone who actually believes that money makes the world go 'round.
