Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part II: Schlocktoberfest 2004


TAGON: Listen to me very carefully, Tem Phica.  My escape system is telling me there's not enough bandwidth to carry you back as a prisoner.

That leaves me with two choices: first, I can kill you and take a reduced bounty.

TAGON: Second, I can allow you to arrange for transport of all of us, yourself include, outside of the teraport interdiction field.

PHICA: You think me coward enough to fear death?  You'll have to kill me, fool.

TAGON: Okay, Sparky.  Let's see what's being door number one.


PHICA: *screaming* AAAIEEE!  I'M BLIND!!

TAGON: Hunh.  Brain-pan must be behind your big mouth.

PHICA: No, wait!!!  I'll...


TAGON: Okay, I think I may be just cold-blooded enough for what comes next.

NARRATOR: No punchline?  Now that is cold-blooded.
