Book 9: The Body Politic — Part II: Royal Flush


Doctor Bunnigus: Sergeant Schlock poses a more serious problem. We don't really know how to culture or diagnose this kind of infection in him.
Doctor Bunnigus: Censuses show fewer than two hundred carbosilicate amorphs abroad in the galaxy, and apparently they don't spend any time in hospitals.
Doctor Bunnigus: Medical literature is silent on the subject. There is no baseline, everything I know about the Sergeant comes from my own notes.
Captain Tagon: How does Schlock keep passing physicals?
Doctor Bunnigus: He doesn't so much "pass" them as "never let them catch up."
