Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part IV: Mallcop Command


NARRATOR: Mall-One Galleria, Deck 10, 10th south at the 190th...

CAPTAIN TAGON: Yup.  I was right.  Everybody is staring.

BUNNIGUS: They should stare. You look sharp, and I'm drop-dead gorgeous.

We've raised the bar here.  That's no mean feat in a posh, exclusive shopping gallery.

CAPTAIN TAGON: Well, it's making me really uncomfortable.  I don't like being stared at...  Not when I don't know who I'm supposed to shoot.

BUNNIGUS: You're missing the point.  You have two platoons of troops awkwardly wandering around Mall-One and nobody is staring at them.


CAPTAIN TAGON: Clever.  There's a problem, though.

CAPTAIN TAGON: The troops are staring, too.  That means they're looking at us, instead of the mall.

CAPTAIN TAGON: They might be missing something important.
