Book 5: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance — Part III: Handle With Care


Elf: Captain, we've located the nursery. Between the hatchlings and the pre-juvies, we'll have about 650 passengers.
Tagon: Ennesby, run the math for me. Is that a lot or a little?
Ennesby: With the racks, the hatchlings will all fit in stowage aft.
Ennesby: The pre-juvies take up more space, but they'll all fit in the wardroom and the company mess.
Ennesby: That leaves the main hold free for the adults. I think we can get them all in.
Tagon: I meant "Are we getting paid a lot or a little?"
Ennesby: What, I'm a cash register now? That's not 'math' that's 'menial multiplication.'
