Ambassador Breya: Petey, if you need help fighting a war on our behalf, you should ask for it.
Petey: A volunteer military would work, yes.
Petey: But your resources are finite. How much help would you provide?
Petey: And who would then protect you from the militaries of those who do not volunteer to help?
Petey: By drafting the most problematic aggressors first, I solve two problems at once.
Ambassador Breya: You're turning Andromeda into a giant space-Australia.
Petey: Australia turned out okay, right?
Colonel Kerchak: Hah! I just realized how much you look like a koala.
