NARRATOR: Mall-One, service lift descending to mall offices...
ANDY: Don't worry, Nick. Massey and the Captain will get this straightened out.
NICK: But what if they don't? I don't think I want this job if we have to cut off my hands.
LEGS: If it comes to that, you'll do fine. Hands are over-rated. You just need a good prehensile tongue.
LEGS: Relax, Nick. I'm kidding.
ANDY: The whole "absolutely no weapons of any kind" thing is just a misunderstanding. Mister Aliss didn't know that in this business "weapon" can mean all kinds of things.
LEGS: He probably doesn't want anybody scaring shoppers by carrying guns, or knives, or stun-batons. Nobody cares about the boosts we've got.
LEGS: I bet he doesn't suspect that our uniforms are force-multipliers.
ANDY: Yeah, Massey and Tagon will fix the contract so that we can do our jobs. Don't worry.
NARRATOR: Arrival, mall offices...
CAPTAIN TAGON: I cleared all our boosted crew, but the side-arms and the uniforms are going to have to go in the lockup.
NICK: No uniforms? Awesome. This won't be the first time I've worked naked.
