Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part IV: Old Habits Die Hard


NARRATOR: And so each day dragged by, like a dogsled through a cornfield.

ENNESBY: We've got a hypernet feed now.  I've anonymized it through one node of the Very Dangerous Array.

NARRATOR: Weeks passed in turn, like the salt shaker at Sunday dinner.

SCHLOCK: I'm Bored.  Bored, bored, bored, Boredyboredy-Mcbored."

KEVYN: Then learn some new words for "bored" instead of making them up, Sergeant.

NARRATOR: The Toughs killed time like Samson killed Philistines, and with very nearly as much jawbone-of-ass.

(unknown): Woo-hoo!  The signal's down again!

KEVYN: I just wish we could see who we're blowing up.

SCHLOCK: erminable, interminable.  Termini-termini-termini-termini-termini-bull-bull-bull-bull-bull

KEVYN: *shouting over Schlock* Okay, who taught the Sergeant to mutter the word "interminable?"

NARRATOR: The Narrator burned through metaphors like an arsonist burning, you know, stuff that burns.
